Like building great companies, bootpacks are just as much about the climb as they are about the summit. If you need to pivot your strategy, you traverse to the next ridge, tree line, or couloir. If on the way up, you stumble across an untouched glade or face, your work may yield an unexpected early return. Sometimes, after reaching lofty goals, you are inspired to take on an even greater challenge or grand new route, and you reap rewards only to immediately get back to work.

Taking the bootpack requires teamwork, focus, sound judgment, strong effort and risk management to realize success. We are inspired by the people whose achievements, ideas, and aspirations that comprise the communities across Intermountain West.
