The Colorado Mountain Club is welcoming three interns for the summer months. Reed Fischer, Libby Gemperline and Beth Ebisch are joining the CMC team to help with marketing, membership and the Backcountry Snowsport Initiative.
Reed Fischer will be working closely with the marketing and membership departments. Reed is a Minnesota native currently studying public relations and English at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. Reed is passionate about exploration, running and music. Two summers ago, Reed and a few friends came through Colorado while filming “March, My Darlings,” a documentary about local music in the Western United States—check it out here. Reed fell in love with Colorado on the trip and knew he wanted to return this summer.
Libby Gemperline is a proud Colorado native and recent graduate with a BFA in Film and Television from the University of Colorado-Denver. She found her current position as the video intern for the CMC while working on an ice and rock climbing documentary for her senior project entitled “Up They Go,” which can be seen here. Libby has summitted over ten 14ers and finally learned how to turn on a snowboard this winter, meaning she isn’t a rookie to the outdoors anymore (she hopes). Libby has an upcoming camping trip where she plans to hit ten of the West Coast’s national parks, hike Yosemite’s Half-Dome and end with skydiving in Vancouver.
Beth Ebisch is a Colorado native born and raised in Golden. She currently attends the University of Denver and is majoring in Environmental Science, with minors in GIS and German. She grew up spending most of her birthdays, over labor day weekend, eating freeze dried blueberry cheesecake next to a campfire in the Colorado backcountry during her family’s summer backpacking trips. Beth still enjoys spending her free time in the outdoors, camping, hiking, snowboarding, and splitboarding, and is excited to work with the Backcountry Snowsport Initiative in conserving our Rocky Mountain Playground.
The CMC is looking forward to a great summer with these three on board. If you see them in the backcountry be sure to say hello!
