Hey there! My name is Abbi Ness! I am currently 20 years old, and a student at the University of Montana. Home is Vancouver, WA. When I'm not in class you can find me outside; skiing, hiking, backpacking, I love pretty much anything that gets me outside and moving!
Ilg's Sacred Snows... is a column created and written by Steve Ilg a world-class, iconic southwest multisport athlete, coach, mountain yogi, and book author which embraces the entire world of winter sports; mental and physical training, gear reviews, destination profiles, and philosophical pieces. From a wholistic perspective angled toward maximizing inner personal reward gained from winter sports, Coach Ilg explores nutrition, cardio, strength, recovery, yoga/flexibility, and mental skill/meditation training. Ilg has been one of this country's most free-thinking and sought-after professional trainers since 1981. His techniques and principles have consistently achieved breakout performances and ongoing results and inner rewards for thousands of recreational athletes and dozens of elite/pro athletes such as cyclists Andy Hampsten, Troy Wells and mountaineers such as Mark Twight and Gerry Roach as well as training more conventional pro athletes such as MVP Stanley Cup Champion, Michael Richter. His books include; THE OUTDOOR ATHLETE, THE WINTER ATHLETE, BE-GOOD-TO-YOUR-BODY THERAPY, and most recently, TOTAL BODY TRANSFORMATION. Ilg currently lives in his hometown of Durango, Colorado continuing to inspire through his own efforts (see his RACE RESUME) while consciously raising his 6 year-old daughter who is already a nordic skiing and sport snowshoe and cycling champion; Dewachen.

When Magee Walker first met Whistler, it was love at first sight. After a season as a dedicated weekend warrior, she knew long distance would never work, so she packed up her snowboard and moved to Whistler for good. She now spends her days snowboarding, her nights winning Settlers of Catan, and her spare time writing about living in Whistler.
