Andie Creel

Bozeman, Montana

I’m a young 21-year- old based out of Bozeman, Montana. I spent my entire life in Bozeman, but when my time to go to college came around I still hadn’t gotten enough of it. I went straight from Bozeman High School to Montana State University and simply moved down the hill. This fall, I temporarily uprooted myself from Bozeman to study a semester of Environmental Economics in Sheffield, England. But as the fall fades to winter and the snow begins to fall back home I find myself dreaming of Bozeman’s surrounding mountains more and more. I cannot wait to be skiing at my home mountain, Bridger Bowl. And I’m even more excited to explore the backcountry surrounding Bozeman further than I have in the past. That’s why I’ll be using a Flyin Ryan Scholarship to pay for my Avalanche Two class.
