Summit Leadership of Wyoming to Host Todd Skinner Video

March 5, 2009

The University of Wyoming student organization Summit Leadership of Wyoming will show a short film on the life and adventures of UW graduate and outdoorsman Todd Skinner Saturday, March 7, at 8 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Family Room.

The event will also include light refreshments and a short discussion with Todd's wife Amy Skinner. Todd was killed in a climbing accident in Yosemite National Park in 2006, but his life remains a testament to many climbing and business accomplishments.

He is known for having many first free assents throughout the world, including the first ever free ascent of a grade seven climb. Originally from Pinedale, Skinner graduated from UW in 1982 and eventually settled in Lander with his family to be able to climb and open Wild Iris Mountain Sports, a business Amy still operates.

Skinner wrote "Beyond the Summit: Setting and Surpassing Extraordinary Business Goals," a book that combines tales of adventure and advice on leadership, teamwork and decision making.

Summit Leadership of Wyoming is a new student organization that seeks to use the spirit of the outdoors as a tool to learn about business practices and personal growth. For more information on Summit Leadership, e-mail
