Hilaree Nelson O’Neill

Ski Mountaineer

Hilaree O'Neill grew up skiing at Steven’s Pass in Washington state. She didn’t begin skiing competitively, however, until moving to Europe in her early twenties. She began with a few European extreme contests and derbies scattered throughout the Alps. She found she had what it took for extreme skiing and the rigors of climbing.

Since then, it's been all uphill...and downhill...and uphill...and downhill. Hilaree continues to be one of the finest ski mountaineers in the world and keeps on pushing her limits and exploration as a North Face athlete. This spring, Hilaree and a small crew of top notch TNF climbers and skiers will be taking their skills to Everest in honor of 60 years of Americans climbing on the mother of them all!
