Justin Lichter grew up an hour north of New York City, has since lived in CA, VT, and CO, and is currently living in Truckee, California. When Justin is not hiking he is a ski patroller, and enjoys backcountry skiing, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking, surfing and anything else active. Since 2002, he has hiked over 40,000 miles. The list of adventures he has undertaken almost seems to long to recount. Among them are the Eastern Continental Trail (Cap Gaspe, QC to Key West, Florida, incorporating the AT), Pacific Crest Trail, and Continental Divide Trail in under a year, 2005-2006, for a total of over 10,500 miles in. He completed a traverse of the Southern Alps and the South Island of New Zealand in 2007, hiking about 2,000 miles across the Himalaya Range in 2011, and skiing 450 miles through the High Sierras in 2013. In the winter of 2014/2015 Justin and Shawn Forry completed the first winter traverse of the Pacific Crest Trail.
