From Amber's very first snowmobile ride with Budd in Alaska to the present, it has been a personal pursuit to develop and refine an educational means that would allow her to share with others that incredible experience and reward that backcountry riding has to offer. Her greatest enjoyment as an instructor comes from possessing the instructional skills and tools that can enable other riders to overcome their own personal apprehensions, fears and frustrations. These factors are often the paralyzing roadblocks to enjoying backcountry riding to its fullest. Amber finds it a great honored to assist in another riderís break through moment when they confidently overcome these blockades and recognizes their endless capabilities!
