Mark Walter in Vail, Colorado



Mark Walter was born and raised in Golden, Colorado. A lifelong adventure seeker, Mark spends as much time outdoors as possible. He’s summited numerous 14ers across Colorado, the highest peaks of Oregon and Washington, and climbed in the Andes Mountains. He’s explored the Colorado wilderness on mountain bike and foot, and rafted the state’s scenic rivers. Fortunate to call both the mountains and the city home, Mark loves skiing, mountain biking, fly fishing, and enjoying life in the high country. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Open Lands Foundation.
