Guide Biography:

guide nora

My name is Norah Cook and I grew up on the South Side of Chicago.


I found my love of adventuring while working at a summer camp in the Shawnee Forest while I was in high school. I went to Colorado State University and graduated with a degree in Natural Resources in 2016.


My favorite activities are skiing, running, reading, and backpacking. My favorite place to travel is anywhere with mountains especially Nepal and Alaska.

I spent the last 3 summer seasons as a backpacking and rafting guide in Alaska’s National Parks where I found my love of working in adventure travel. During the off-season, I teach skiing and work in ski shops. I am so excited to guide with Austin Adventures this summer!
