About Mountain Obsession

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

My name is Topher Burke and I’ve been an avid outdoorsman for more than 20 years, and 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 Idaho.

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 that I could use my experience and expertise to provide useful information to people who are looking to learn, as well as leverage my great community of friends and family who can bring their own wealth of knowledge here.

As our site and team continue to grow we will keep building upon these foundations in the hopes to assist and hopefully inspire those looking to spend as much time outside as possible.
