Elevated Mountain Guides

Making the Outdoors Accessible to Underserved Communities - locally and abroad

We are making the outdoors and all the amazing experiences it has to offer, accessible to the underserved communities of UT and Peru. We started with our Project: Elevated Access bringing the latest backcountry and wilderness medicine trainings and equipment to Peru. In 2016 started Project: Climb in partnership with the Salt Lake Boys & Girls Club reaching over 80 deserving youth in our first year. Starting in January 2019, we will be expanding our reach to include our local refugee, homeless and foster youth within the Salt Lake and Summit Counties.
