About Mountain Obsession

Welcome to Mountain Obsession, your destination for all things outdoors! Our website provides outdoor enthusiasts with the information they need to plan their next adventure.

My name is Andrew Burke, and I’ve been an avid outdoorsman for over 30 years. I grew up hiking, camping, and skiing in the Rocky Mountains. I also worked as a paramedic and was a volunteer search and rescue team member in the vast wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.

Mountain Obsession was started after I discovered that a great deal of the information on the internet about staying safe while enjoying the outdoors was misleading and unhelpful.

I realized I could use my experience and expertise to provide helpful information to people looking to learn and leverage my incredible community of friends and family who can bring their wealth of knowledge here.

As our site and team grow, we will build upon these foundations to assist and inspire those looking to spend as much time outside as possible.
