Liz Saville ~ Team Leader

About us

As a professional educator for over 20 years, Liz Saville is a dynamic leader and passionate about creating atmospheres for diverse groups of women to share in her passion for adventure, travel, sport and wellness.  Her curiosity about how women choose to ‘do’ life all over the world drives her passion to learn from others as she teaches, leads and explores the world.


Growing up in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, she first started hitting the slopes at age 5 and has kept herself immersed in the mountains ever since, it is where she finds her soul. Liz strongly believes in the relationship between personal health and wellness and spending time connecting to our natural surroundings. Exploring the mountains through sport helps Liz find the balance she needs between being a mother, a wife, an educator and finding her true bliss.


“When you’re a mountain person, you understand the brilliance and beauty of contradiction. The way land can be your greatest teacher.  How something can be both grounding, yet elevating, intoxicating yet soothing, wild yet serene, intensely primal yet patient, and cycling yet predictable within the shifts and rhythms. Mountains keep us on edge yet wrap us in the sensation of safety all at once. I don’t know of anything sweeter or more magic inducing than that.” – Victoria Erickson


Spending time in the mountains truly is magical. There is nothing more fulfilling than the satisfaction that results from a hard day of riding as you enjoy the company of friends, and recant the day’s adventures.  Skiing and riding are sports that bring escape from the cares and tensions of life and bring an awareness of the grandeur of nature and how it calms the spirit. Words can’t really explain it, you will just have to join Liz on one of her adventures to know….
