About The Next Summit

I love the mountains with a passion - but I love helping others explore and discover them even more! The Next Summit started out as a hobby and labor of love, but it has quickly grown into a mission to educate others about safely and sustainably exploring the mountains.

With more people heading into the hills every year, there's a massive need for more educational resources on mountain safety and leave no trace outdoor ethics.

That's what I do: I create free webinars, training, route guides, and how-to articles that help people make better decisions in the backcountry. Whether teaching someone how to climb a class three peak or just sharing tips for minimizing your impact on public lands, I'm dedicated to making backcountry education accessible to everyone.

This critical work takes resources - for web hosting, content creation, and advertising to share these resources across the nation. Your support as a monthly patron makes ALL of this possible! Appreciating your gift, all patrons receive my exclusive monthly newsletter (called The Inside Summit!). It's got extra content like trail and peak recommendations, news items, and my reflections on running The Next Summit. Patrons at higher levels receive additional perks, like one-on-one training opportunities with me and more! 

No matter what level you choose to give at, it makes a big difference when joined with the gifts of others. Thank you for supporting The Next Summit and helping make mountain education accessible to all!
