Austin Porzak was born with alpine skiing and mountaineering in his blood. Following in his father’s footsteps from a very young age, he quickly developed an intense passion for all outdoor snow sports. Growing up, Austin traveled the world with his father and family, constantly in search of the next bigadventure. His travels took him to Mt. Makalu and Mt. Everestwhere he became the youngest American to traverse these two 100+ mile treks. The early exposure to the mountains and the corresponding lifestyle, peaked his interest in the outdoors and has led him to creating his own mountain oriented lifestyle. Since then, Austin has successfully skied all58 of the 14,000 footpeaks in Colorado. In addition to his vast ski accomplishments, Austin has successfully climbed Mt. McKinley, Khan Tengri, Zinalrothorn, Matterhorn, Cotopaxi, Cayambe, the entire Snowy Mountain range in Australia, and hundreds of other technical mixed alpine ski/climbs.
