Eeva is Associate Professor in Outdoor Studies at Alaska Pacific University and part time avalanche educator with Alaska Avalanche School. Born and raised in Finland, she has called AK home for the last 10 years. Before moving up north, she sampled other mountain regions in North America. This included skiing Mount Baker during the record snow in season ‘94-‘95, ski patrolling in Colorado for five years and teaching mountaineering courses in the North Cascades & the Coast Range. Eeva teaches Level 1 & 2 courses for AAS and would love to travel around Alaska to teach more custom courses. With all the spare time, she trains her operational avalanche rescue dog, Sisu, and drinks strong coffee.
