Colorado Summit: 4 Seasons of Activities in Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon and Beyond
Rachel Zerowin, formerly Rachel Barbara, is a writer and online media professional who specializes in the travel and outdoors industries. She uses this site to cover trails and active pursuits in, primarily, the Summit County area. She has recently been incorporating her love of cooking via the Camp Kitchen section. Rachel is an avid armchair traveler when it comes to big adventures such as mountain climbing. She may one day include an adventure books section on this site, but for now, you can see some of her favorites on Pinterest.
Professional background: A dedicated fan of fun, Rachel loves covering the outdoors but enjoys writing everything from video scripts and web copy to FAQs and business recaps. As the public relations and marketing manager for the Breckenridge Resort Chamber, she gets to do all of the above and spend her lunch hour playing in the mountain community of Breckenridge, Colo.
Though she never thought she’d use that film degree from Philadelphia’s Temple University, Rachel has written and produced both editorial and marketing videos. Her producing skills have helped her manage a variety of projects from website development and print collateral to satellite tours and media events. She realizes that the success of such projects depends upon the people dealing with the details. Rachel is one of those people.
A note about reviews: In some cases I’ve been provided with free gear about which to give my honest opinion. In other cases, I’m reporting on my favorite equipment that I’ve purchased and use regularly when playing outdoors. In either instance, you’re getting the facts.
I’m not in the business of lying, and neither am I in the business of bad-mouthing. Remember Mom’s words? “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” That’s my review policy. I’d rather exchange something I’ve bought (or return something I’ve been sent) than waste my time talking trash.
