Dani Reyes-Acosta is a mountain athlete and storyteller rewriting the narrative of who plays outside and how we build community with others on this planet.
Originally from Southern California, she has traveled through Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Andorra, Canada, and the USA building her mountain craft since 2014, when she graduated from corporate life with a one-way ticket to South America.
A splitboarder, rock climber, mountain runner, and waterwoman, she has been featured in the Washington Post, She Explores, Women on the Road, the Los Angeles Times, and regional publications throughout the American West.
Currently partnered with Protect Our Winters, Salomon, Suunto, Trail Butter, Anon Optics, and Athletic Brewing, her mission is to inspire individual action and collective communion through self-care and self-determination found in the outdoors.
Her goal as a mountain athlete is to find the limits of her possible, searching for high peaks and ski lines that tell the story of Mother Earth’s most impacted places.
