BackYour Guides - Marion Battishall

Marion is an Environmental Scientist, alpine guide and backcountry snowboarder. She has extensive experience as an alpine ecologist, having worked on threatened species projects for New Zealandís Dept. of Conservation in the Mt Cook area, and in our own Kosciuszko National Park. During winter Marionís focus shifts to backcountry snowboarding. She honed her big mountain skills over many years in British Columbia and New Zealandís South Island, but still loves exploring our own Main Range.

Marion is passionate about sharing her knowledge of alpine environments and has guided clients through the mountains in all seasons. She has also professionally guided mountain biking, horse riding, rock climbing and cave exploration. Currently working as a discovery ranger she is able to educate the next generation about the magic and value embodied in our wild places. While all can appreciate the grandeur of spectacular peaks, Marion has long been captivated by the tiny, tenacious and unique plants found in the Australian Alpine.

Her blog, www.alpinebloom.me, documents the flora found in bloom each year along our amazing alpine and sub-alpine walks.
