Career Biography

Denver native Claudia Carbone began a career in journalism in 1984 when she was hired as the first ski columnist for the Villager Newspaper  in Englewood, Colorado. She became the subject of journalists after publication of her groundbreaking book WomenSki in 1994. A crusader and consultant for women's ski equipment and ski clinics, her writing focus at that time was to encourage women skiers by redefining skiing and campaigning for changes in equipment and instruction. The award-winning book garnered her appearances on The Today Show, NBC Nightly News and scores of other national, international and local media.


From 1995 to 2006, Claudia lived in Breckenridge where she was a mountain host and guide for the ski resort. She also served as an Ambassador for the Town of Breckenridge and sat on the boards of The Backstage Theatre and Summit Historical Society. Now she is back in Denver where she covers dining, performing arts, lifestyles, soft adventure and travel (including ski resorts) for a variety of magazines and websites.
