Yitka Winn

Yitka Winn REI Author
Born and raised in the Midwest, Yitka moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2009 in pursuit of the mountains. You may find her hiking up them, running across them, snowboarding down them, photographing people on them, or writing about her feverish passion for them. Mostly, Yitka entertains herself with endurance races and cajoling others to run with her. At REI, she writes product information copy for REI.com, contributes to the REI Blog and works in the footwear department at the Seattle Flagship store.
