LIVE LIKE LIZ is a project started in honor of Liz Daley. Liz was killed in an avalanche on September 29, 2014 while living her dream as a mountain guide and professional snowboarder. Liz had several big mountain accomplishments and first descents on a snowboard and was taking the outdoor industry by storm with multiple expeditions and several big write ups including Teton Gravity Research . She broke down barriers for women in the outdoors with her bubbly spirit, femininity, and endless encouragement for those around her. She was a breath of fresh air in an industry dominated by men. She overcame adversity on a regular basis she continued to prove herself over and over again with a humble disposition. Liz inspired many men and women during her life that her death left a ripple effect that continues to make waves 4 years later. Liz was not just a talented athlete but a great friend to many.
The LIVE LIKE LIZ project is dedicated to capturing the impact Liz had on people all over the world and those who are now able to reach new peaks because of the many scholarships and grants that have been established in her name.
Her hometown of Tacoma, WA is even building a rock climbing wall in her honor. The Liz Rocks foundation was started as a continuation of the climbing wall and provides underrepresented youth opportunities to reach new peaks through mountain activities.
