Elevated Mountain Guides believes that everyone has a right to the outdoors and that when the outdoors are accessible and inclusive they become a better place for all to recreate. Our programs work to address the primary barriers that underserved communities face in accessing outdoor recreation. By getting outside, our participants are able to expand their expertise, engage with nature and meet other like-minded individuals; creating supportive communities where they are most needed.

This year, we were able to get back on our feet after the challenges that COVID-19 brought by bringing our Project Climb program to Summit County. With the help of our community partner, SOS Outreach, we were able to provide youth in Summit County with the knowledge, skills, mentorship, and resources to enjoy the benefits of recreating outdoors, developing real-life skills, connecting to our natural environments, and being a part of the outdoor community.

Access to the pristine wilderness surrounding Summit County is typically reserved for those with the gear, transportation, time, and skills to get outside safely, and our mission is to continue to provide opportunities for Salt Lake and Summit County youth to overcome these barriers. For the rest of this year and moving into next, we hope to expand our programming to involve more participants and work with more community partners. In order to do that, we need to obtain more gear, ensure that our guiding staff is fairly certified and paid, and provide transportation and facilities for participants. With your support, we at EMG will be able to expand our reach and provide safe and supportive access to our beautiful natural areas to those that may benefit from it the most.
