Appreciating our Alumni with a Weekend of Rock

I saw the Mountain Madness office for the first time in 15 years this past spring. As the daughter of the company's late founder Scott Fischer, the mountains have always been an important part of my past. However, I have grown up fairly disconnected from the company itself.
