Hi! My name is Morgan Tilton — I also go by Mo. I grew up in a small mountain town and moved to the big city to hit the books at the University of Denver. Three degrees, four years, and a couple of trips across the world later, I launched my business as a writer.
My umbrella of writing includes adventure travel, outdoor industry news and all-things Colorado. I contribute to local and national publications in print and digital including work with Outside, Men’s Journal, Teton Gravity Research, TransWorld Snowboarding, SUP Magazine, Backpacker, Adventure Journal, Trail Run Project Journal and Elevation Outdoors among others. I have joined live reporting crews at eight outdoor industry trade shows –Outdoor Retailer and SIA Snow Show– and counting.
Trail running is my newest passion but carving into snow on skis or snowboard has been a part of my life since I could walk. Skiing has been a piece of my family for generations: the smell of snow reaches me before it falls and that first storm stills sparks a childlike excitement for me that’s incomparable. When I’m not digging into research and interviews or plugging away at the keyboard, you can find me on trail, snow, yoga mat, or water–somewhere in the world. From running with the Tarahumara in Mexico’s Copper Canyon to SUPing the country’s most remote whitewater, given I’m unreachable, I’ll be stoked to share the behind-the-scenes story with you, soon.
