Artist: Laura Betti

Laura Betti

Lifelong artist Laura Betti receives the gift of creative flow from her surroundings—the mountains of Aspen, Colo. Her ideas come during long trail runs or winter skins through the woods. The power and energy of mountains bring her perspective on what concepts are most salient to communicate.

The artist’s current interest spans from the effects of modern society on humans to the effects of humans on their surroundings. After considerable research, Betti distills her subject matter into text, using poetry and philosophical and historical perspectives. Betti then meticulously transfers the text onto the canvas using delicate pen and ink lines, which then make up the larger composition.

Support education and mentoring for all backcountry riders

We have a favor to ask of our backcountry community. Powder Cloud believes our educational content and journalism should be easily accessible to all backcountry riders. A majority of our content is free, and we strive to limit annoying distractions like blinking ads, paywalls and pop-up screens.

We need your support to sustain the work we and our contributors provide, and to help us develop new and exciting ways to educate our community.

With as little as $5, you can help our mission—to provide backcountry skiers and riders the mentorship they require to travel safely and find the happiness. It only takes a minute and we’re so grateful and appreciate you.
