Our world got a whole lot brighter last year with the addition of Events Coordinator, Ellen Young. A graduate of the University of Utah’s Gender Studies department, feminist, music lover and all-around badass, Ellen joined the SLUG team in the fall of 2015. Ellen’s chipper attitude imparts a positive vibe on SLUG’s HQ, where she works with SLUG’s marketing team to strengthen the magazine’s outreach at SLUG-produced and SLUG-sponsored events, such as SLUG’s Localized, the Summer of Death skate series and The SLUG Games Ski & Snowboard Competition Series. Ellen also applies her experiences as a former liftie at Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort and as a Utah powder lover while delivering mags to Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. We’re proud to shred with Ellen!
