Patrick Coffey

A Vermonter by birth and a Utahn by choice, Patrick has spent the past 8 years exploring every trail in Park City by bike, foot, and skis.

A professed Nordic ski nerd and trail running lover, Patrick came to discover his passion for mountain biking upon arrival in Utah.

The desert has become another world that he cannot get enough of. During time off when the weather is right, he can be found with his trusty sidekick, Stella the dog, exploring the canyons of Southern Utah from Robber’s Roost to Escalante National Monument.

He feels that the best part of living in Utah is having the chance to share it with those who are looking for an adventure.

Guide Bio Tori Sowul
Tori Sowul

Tori Sowul is a free spirit who feels at home whenever she is in the mountains.

A native to Park City, she loves sharing her active lifestyle, historic and cultural knowledge and funky hometown vibes with others.

In the winter,  she has hard time keeping composure on powder days and will let her natural stoke lead her to the best untouched pockets on the mountain.

Every other season, you can find her covered in dirt, smelling of campfire, and with awkward tan lines.  The phrase bike obsession wouldn’t do her justice – from cross country to the bike park, this gal loves to flow!

Outside of her own personal outdoor joy, Tori is extremely passionate about helping others learn, grow and explore in these activities.  She is an IMBA certified instructor and has her wildlife first aid; let her guide you through new and fun experiences!

That basic principle of discovering the unknown has led her on a journey of big mountain exploring consisting of skiing, climbing, ice climbing, hiking, white water rafting, mountain biking and kayaking. Kelli pushes every boundary and challenges herself constantly, both mentally and physically.
