What makes mountain culture—or, more accurately, who? Mountain Perspectives is our short film series honoring a few of the individuals who champion the mountain culture we live for. In this episode, meet Alex Kim, a Stio Ambassador who helped start Here Montana, a group that creates a welcoming and empowering space for People of Color to recreate outside. Stay tuned as new episodes drop all season long.
You might expect a Missoula local to enjoy cross-country skiing, but you might not expect him to enjoy plunging into ice-cold rivers—which Stio Ambassador Alex Kim does. A community leader, he’s motivated not just by exploring the outdoors, but also by creating community through welcoming experiences. Alex is the founder of Here Montana, a group that fosters a welcoming and empowering space for People of Color to recreate outside.
