Tolly graduated from Barnard in June 2020 and joined Avant Ski for the Spring/Summer where she helped create content geared towards college students. Although she grew up on the east coast of the United States, Tolly learned to ski out west at the age of 2 between her parents' legs. She has fond memories of mountain fries for lunch, relinquishing her fear of boarding a chairlift all by herself and unlimited gummy bears from Ski School coaches.
Skiing has always been an easy excuse to travel and takes great pride in never visiting the same mountain more than twice before finding another destination. Having recently relocated to New York City, Tolly hopes to still make annual ski trips and perhaps begin to try out a few mountains local to the New York area.
