Stephanie Whatton


Steph grew up spending her free time climbing, hiking, and immersing herself in nature at the Gunks and the Mohonk Preserve in upstate New York. It was these places that prompted her love for adventure within the natural world. Her strong connection to nature inspired her to venture to the remote Adirondack Mountains, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Earth and Environmental Science at Plattsburgh State University. Since then, she has worked as a guide and educator within the outdoor industry. This encouraged her to become a Leave No Trace Master Educator so that she could share the importance of outdoor ethics with others. Steph loves to backcountry ski, climb, and bike all while capturing moments through her camera lens.


Andy Mossey


Hiking in the Adirondack Mountains of New York and skiing in the Green Mountains of Vermont sparked Andy’s love for the outdoors at a very young age. When it came time for college, Andy knew right away that Expeditionary Studies was the program for him and he chose to concentrate in outdoor experiential education within climbing, and skiing. Since then, he has worked as a climbing guide and educator where he has been able to share his passion with others. The ethics of Leave No Trace make up the core of his beliefs, and Andy is psyched to team up with Steph, as the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers Team East! In his free time, Andy enjoys rock climbing, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, and ice climbing.
