Name: Matt Baer (He/Him/His)
Role at the Shop: Resident camping guru & all things social media related
Favorite product we sell and why: La Sportiva Bushido II’s for putting down long days running and hiking in the mountains. My trusty Madshus XCD skis, and some Untapped Lemon waffles for a great trail snack.
Notable Outdoor Adventures: Extensive hiking all over the northeast, thru-hiking the NPT, climbing in the Utah desert, summiting Acatenangoin Guatemala, and getting to ski Mt. Marcy for the first time winter 2021!
Fondest Memory in the Adirondack Park: Summers spent guiding and summit stewarding in the high peaks, rope swinging & cliff jumping in my favorite local swimming holes, and the awesome tight knit community here.
When You’re not Working, what are you doing? You can find me in the crowd at a good ol' rowdy punk rock show, recording Foot Stuff Podcast (The Outdoor Recreation Comedy), or trying not to get thrown off my mountain bike.
Favorite Food after a long day in the mountains: Either fish tacos or a nice big veggie burger & fries!
