Warning: This is a shameless plug for Summit Hut. No one pays us for our recommendations. We just like Summit Hut. It is a high end recreational outfitter for adventure; hiking, camping, climbing, extreme sports as well as the discerning casual explorer. The folks at Summit Hut, two stores in Tucson, one east, one west, are local, which means, they know Arizona.
It is rumored that their sales consultants are not compensated through sales numbers, so they are committed to telling you what they think is best, not what they get commissioned for.
On the Summit Hut website you will find events, articles and tweets to keep you informed. They conduct in store talks as well as guided hikes. You can check out all the Summit Hut events here.
Summit Hut has their own list of websites to visit for hiking adventures and wildlife conservation here on their Community Resources page.
They are also actively involved in giving back to the community through Community Outreach. Here is a list of their Partners, Alliances and Membership Organizations.
One of their outreach benefit programs, coming to the Fox Theatre February 28th, 2019 for the third year was the BANFF Mountain Film Festival; a rollicking trip around the world in three hours or less. This event is a three night adventure extravaganza. See the trailer above. Enjoy life, be adventurous.
