Gallant's physical training includes two mornings a week at the gym along with hill repeats on Mount Glory and Snow King Mountain, backcountry skiing in Grand Teton National Park, trail runs and mountain bike rides up Cache Creek, and evenings spent on a stationary bike at home. Gallant has faced Mount Everest three times before _ the first, a trip that launched a love for Nepal, mountaineering and the mountain itself. The other two treks to the mountain, taken in the spring of 2014 and 2015, were marred by such severe tragedy that she returned to the states with nightmares of what she’d seen.
