About This Show
The MTNmeister podcast presents interviews with the most inspiring, motivating, and influential athletes in outdoor sports. In a half hour, you’ll explore topics which transcend sport: overcoming adversity, stepping outside of your comfort zone, persevering through hardship, weighing risk vs. reward, and more. MTNmeister delivers extreme examples of these topics through the guests we host: mountaineers, ultramarathoners, Paralympians, Olympians, rock climbers, skiers, and more. Join the host of MTNmeister, Ben Schenck, as he asks thought provoking questions that you won’t hear on a typical interview. Also, every MTNmeister will recommend the best gear, resources, and destinations that will assist you in your own adventures.

#196 Come climb with MtnMeister!
Over the past two summers, I’ve had the amazing the opportunity to climb two iconic peaks in the continental US: Mt Langley in 2015 and Mt. Hood in 2016. These are some of my fondest memories over the past few years. I have met incredible people and been forced outside of my comfort zone. These experiences have been part of the Summit for Someone program - charity climbs that raise money for Big City Mountaineers (BCM), a non-profit that takes underserved, inner-city youth on immersive, weeklong expeditions into the wilderness. This summer, I figured that rather than telling you about what happens to me, I should invite you to experience it with me. Further, I should invite a past guest on this podcast to serve as our mountain guide. I'm happy to say that all of the pieces have come together, and you're invited to join us! Where: Grand Teton When: July 7-10 Guide: Brian Warren, Jackson Hole Mountain Guides Photographer: Chris Shane, @chrismshane More details and register here: http://www.bigcitymountaineers.org/summit-for-someone/2017-climbs/grand-teton/
