Born and raised in Chicago, Rachel graduated from Indiana University and found success early in her career in corporate marketing, eventually setting her sights west to join the development team at St. Regis Deer Valley. She quickly fell in love with this mountain town, the close-knit community, and her future husband Rob Alday. Channeling their passion for all things Park City, in 2010 Rachel and Rob set out to create Abode Luxury Rentals, a boutique luxury vacation rental company that enabled them to share their love of these mountains with visitors. Over 12 years, an expansion to Jackson Hole, 160 properties, and a diversified business portfolio including concierge, laundry services, and HOA management, Abode continues to be a force in their industry due to its proven expertise in destination marketing and deep commitment to high-end service. Rachel is grateful to have held board and committee roles with local non-profits including Park City Rotary, Park City Institute, NAC, Temple Har Shalom, and Utah Clean Energy while leading the development of a new lodging association in Jackson Hole. Rachel relishes in raising their three young kids, Bear, Major, and Annabel with a love for and in service of this mountain community.
Since 2009, I have lived in various parts of the county, from Old Town to Pinebrook, finally buying a house in 2017 with my partner Justin, our Golden Retriever Milo, and our rescue cat Bella. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast with a side hobby of creating art. I am also the owner and founder of Quincy Candle Co., a small candle design and production business.
U.S. Ski and Snowboard has been my employer since 2009. Myself and our team manage large-scale international and domestic ski and snowboard events within the U.S. Our primary role is to site events and work as a bridge between the local community and international and national stakeholders to fulfill all needs to put on major televised sports events.

I grew up in Seattle, Washington before leaving for the University of Montana. After graduating, my desire to travel and recreate took me all over, from work in Antarctica to West Virginia, before settling in Park City in Fall 2005. The town offered an abundance of outdoor pursuits and an unparalleled way of life. I began guiding for Goose at All Seasons Adventures (ASA) in Summer 2006, eventually turning a summer raft guide position into a year-round management position. My time with ASA culminated with my partnership in the business. What began as an opportunity to explore the outdoors became a drive to share these experiences with others. I and my business partner, Justin Brown, have continued to build this reputable and elite guide service, sharing a variety of adventures with the guests of Park City. We strive to create lasting memories in a safe and sustainable environment while positively impacting the town, its locals, and other businesses.
I have 18 years of experience designing brand strategies for experiential luxury resorts in remote destinations. From 2009-2014 I led the opening sales and marketing efforts for world-renowned Amangiri resort in southern Utah as well as Amangani in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. From 2014-2018 I was Director of Sales & Marketing for The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana, the world's first Forbes Five Star luxury guest ranch in the world. In 2018 I began as Director of Sales & Marketing to launch The Lodge at Blue Sky in Wanship, Utah. Within the first two years of the resort's opening, The Lodge at Blue Sky has garnered international recognition including best new hotel awards in Travel Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, Vogue, AFAR, Harper's Bazaar, and Departures. My goal is to redefine the notion of luxury travel by placing enriching outdoor adventures at the forefront of the property's narrative and to reconnect curious travelers with the transformative powers of the natural environment.
