When Dave Baker, co-founder of Summit Hut, was just 15 years old, him and his then-partner, Jeff Conn, got the idea of supplying the community with outdoor gear. That's how Summit Hut was created. Fifty years later, this company is one of the most popular outdoor gear suppliers in Tucson and continues to increase in sales year after year.

Jeremy added, “And be a good steward to Tucson.”
