Marki Sindlinger


Marki Sindlinger was born and raised in the mountains of Colorado. She is a 2010 graduate of Fort Lewis College of Durango, Colorado with a BA in Business Management. Growing up with a passion for the outdoors, she has continued to make her home within the Rocky Mountains. She grew up spending many hours on the local ski mountains of Beaver Creek and Vail, Colorado and continued that joy in the San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado, where she realized her true calling.

After moving home to the Vail Valley she continued her education in Emergency Medical Services, collecting her Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), certification from Colorado Mountain College in 2013. A year later she joined Beaver Creek Ski Patrol and became Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC), certified by National Ski Patrol Rocky Mountain District.

Marki is currently a Ski Patroller year round for Beaver Creek Mountain, in her hometown of Avon, Colorado. She is also a certified NSP OEC instructor, as well as BLS CPR certified instructor for Southwest Regional CPR.

Marki has an adventurous spirit not only in the mountains but also in experiencing new lands. For the past six years, she has been traveling back and forth from America to Southeast Asia and gaining a wealth of knowledge and respect for the culture and all the living creatures that work with one another in the circle of life. Although she did not follow in the footsteps of her parents, both educators, she does share the same passion for teaching and reaching out to others from all over the world.
