Team 15

Have you ever wanted to spend 3 days tucked away in the woods with an aspiring sommelier and American bourbon and whiskey expert? Wanted to know what it was like to run 26.2 miles in tropical storms or to fling yourself off two ledges anchored only by thin tethers? Found yourself partying on elevated surfaces or closing out the 4am after-after party with the best of the oldies blasting through the walls? Dug yourself deep into highly informed discussions on all things Hollywood celebrities or spent hours discussing any and all random fun facts ranging from bridge design to music across the ages?

If so, come join our Mtrek crew and hang out with two of the most outgoing and absurd roomies and best of pals. We share a deep love of UVA Basketball (Go Hoos), skiing (and of course apres ski), hours of obsessive TV watching, drinking spiked arnold palmer ice teas with a side of golf, and finding the fanciest of steaks and the trashiest of burgers. We survived 6 weeks of quarantine together and know how to bring the fun to just about anything. Most importantly, we cannot wait to meet and bond with you all over these things and much much more.
