Amelia Arvesen is a Boulder-based journalist and outdoorsist. She is the assistant editor at SNEWS, the outdoor industry’s most trusted source for trade news. Her work has taken her behind the scenes of some of the most recognized outdoor brands, such as The North Face, Black Diamond, Backcountry.com, Patagonia, and more.
Previously, she was a crime and energy reporter for the Longmont Times-Call and Boulder Daily Camera. She grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and has also lived in Kansas, where she took home the investigative Victor Murdock award for reporting on a truck salvage yard tied up in civil battles and EPA violations.
Outside of work, Amelia runs, camps, hikes, rock climbs, snaps photos, devours tacos, occasionally bakes bread, snuggles other people’s dogs, and works on her van with her husband.
