Utah Section Chair

Blake copy.jpg

Blake Summers started his days in Austin, Texas. While proud of his Texan heritage, he is grateful to have been moved to the foothills of Colorado at a young age.  Blake owes a debt of gratitude to his Father for introducing him to the Rockies and to adventure. An incredible love and appreciation for the mountains developed and now Blake can’t live without them.

Blake now resides in Midway, Utah on the Wasatch back where he has skied and boarded 100+ days a season for the last 16 years and aims to climb at least that much every year. Blake seeks adventure whether it is Kings Peak in a day, volcanoes in Indo, peakbagging  in Peru, or new routeing in the backyard.

Blake also desires to share his passion for the mountains with others via working as a climbing guide for White Pine Touring in Park City and by volunteering for the Salt Lake Climber’s Alliance and the great community that is the American Alpine Club.
