Matt & Sarah Park

Climbing shaped our lives individually and brought us together. Both of us are natives of Utah and have a passion for the outdoors in all seasons. After Sarah finished a Bachelors Degree, we decided we'd had enough of apartment life and started living in our Volkswagon bus. That kicked off a goal to live in a van, work just enough to make ends meet, and play in the mountains every day. We called it, "The Bus Life." Four years and a newer and better van later, we are still living by the same values and are continuing to make living and working in the outdoors our life. Heading into our fifth winter living in a van, we are more excited than ever to get out skiing and climbing every day.
