Kira is a fourth generation Montanan. Kira developed her love for the outdoors at a young age. Growing up, she spent much of her free time hiking the Absaroka-Beartooth trails near her family’s cabin at East Rosebud Lake. Family outings each summer allowed her to explore other areas of Montana, including Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks and the Bob Marshall wilderness, while snowboarding at Big Sky and Bridger Bowl kept her active during Montana’s cold winters. Kira’s passion for travel began with a road trip to the Canadian Rockies as a teenager. She would later expand her travels in the US and abroad. Kira has skied and hiked across North America and Canada. She has also visited Mexico, Thailand, and Indonesia and hopes to visit more countries in the future. Kira attended college at Montana State University, where she earned a degree in cell biology and neuroscience. Following her graduation, she moved to the Pacific Northwest to pursue her passion for snowboarding. She currently spends her winters at Mount Baker, Washington, but her love of Montana brings her back each summer.Trips Guided by Kira Frye:
Kira's Guide Survey
Deep water soloing in Railay, Thailand. The gorgeous teal waters with limestone cliffs emerging from the sea are one of the most unique climbing spots in the world.
Froze to Death Lake, in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. Not only does it live up to its name when you jump in after a grueling hike, the view also takes your breath away. Hiking atop the Froze to Death plateau leads you to Tempest Mountain, which is base camp for climbing Granite Peak, Montana’s highest point at 12,799 feet.
Favorite Bike ride:
Poison Spider trail, Moab UT. There’s definitely a thrill when the trail is placed right on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Utah desert.
