Betsy Waddington #28
(Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)  
Hollyburn Mountain West Slopes - Christmas Eve 1997
Betsy Fletcher was born in 1964 in Vancouver, and in 1982, went to UBC to study geography. Once at UBC she joined the UBC Varsity Outdoor Club (VOC) and soon fell in with the hard core - out every weekend - gang, most notably Brian Waddington.
