My name is Dan Mazur and this is my 23rd year of leading exciting climbs, fun treks, and meaningful service projects for SummitClimb, SummitTrek, and the Mount Everest Foundation for Sustainable Development. Our team members are men and women of all ages from around the world.

How are you? What have you been doing? Since the beginning of 2014, we have enjoyed winter sports in our local mountains, and also boating on the Pacific Ocean. Here it has been a stormy winter. What is your weather like?

The first few months of 2014 have yielded some fun Christmas New Year treks to Everest Base Camp, and exciting climbs of the famous 7-Summit and highest mountain in all of the Americas, Mount Aconcagua. Also we have been busy with "giving back" to low-income communities near Everest, including building a new school for training disadvantaged Sherpas, restoring Nepal's oldest convent, and building a waste treatment plant for Mount Everest Base Camp.

I spread the word about our exciting climbs, treks, and charity non-profit service work during a slideshow presentation tour each year. Please let me know if you or someone you know would like to host or attend an exciting live video - slide presentation, in aid of a very good cause, the Mount Everest Foundation: www.FundRaisingLectures.org .

We had a brilliant year of climbs and treks in 2013, with all teams reaching their objective, whether that was 100 percent of my team climbing to the summit of Everest or a neighbouring peak, trekking to basecamp, or working on a volunteer project. See news at www.SummitClimbNews.com . Back to top

WELL ORGANISED, GOOD VALUE and EXCELLENT TRACK RECORD: When comparing options please carefully check what is on offer and prior performance. I have worked for many different companies during my climbing and trekking career, and I feel that SummitClimb and SummitTrek offer the best organisation, very good value for money, and unmatched summit success. For example, all of their expeditions put members on the summit (and all of their treks, walks and training climbs reached their objectives) during 2013. Many teams had 100% success! Learn more at: www.SummitClimbReviews.com .

"GIVING BACK". WE WORK TOGETHER WITH THE MOUNT EVEREST FOUNDATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. Building projects together with poor families living near Everest, working on health, education, cultural and environmental preservation. LATEST PROJECT: www.SherpaTrainingSchool.org . Building a new school for 30 Sherpas, so they can learn the skills needed to become high quality climbing and trekking guides. Your donations of climbing and trekking gear and clothing are needed. Please contact info@MountEverestFoundation.org .

SKI, BOARD, SNOWSHOE and RAQUETTE THIS YEAR: After the snow is gone in your home area, what to do? As we see the 'light at the end of the tunnel' and winter draws to a close, I can't help but think of the possibilities to extend this fun to some high altitude skiing, boarding and snowshoeing in the Himalaya during summer and autumn this year. Would you like to join me for Mt Mustagata in China, Mera Peak in Nepal, Mt Elbrus in Russia, or Cho Oyu in Tibet this year? Oh yes, what about skiing and boarding Everest? THAT'S RIGHT EVEREST! We have a new autumn expedition to Everest Nepal I plan to personally lead and ski this year, so I hope you will join me as we explore ultimate high altitude sports together.
