Mountaineer 路聽 Speaker 路 Entrepreneur 路 Author

Going beyond a motivational and leadership speaker, David has spoken to hundreds of large corporations and small groups, captivating audiences with teamwork in the most extreme environments, persistence, risk management, failure, and moving forward, all in a dramatic presentation of videos and expedition photos.

Growing up in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, David was surrounded by mountains. But it wasn鈥檛 until his late 20鈥檚 when a challenge came from a coworker to climb Rainier that he began exploring the possibilities of mountaineering. His drive and passion for life transferred to mountain climbing, and quickly he was on the fast track to reaching the Seven Summits. Through many successes and a few failures he was able to reach this seemingly unattainable goal in just 8 short years.

David has taken his passion for adventure and channeled it into developing several successful adventure travel businesses. He has a masters degree in Business Administration and has been successful in corporate sales for over 2 decades. His extensive experience in both business and mountaineering bring a unique perspective that is rare among professional speakers. David has inspired audiences and corporations worldwide with his message of persistence and climbing beyond our self-imposed limiting beliefs.聽

Leading the Seven Summits

Reaching the highest real estate on every continent requires a lot of right things to go right at the right time. On every expedition David has organized, he's planned out every detail and contingency and inevitably on every continent something hasn't gone as planned.


David Snow never intended to become a mountain climber. But when a friend invited him to climb Mt. Rainier, Snow decided to try this new experience. For the friend, also a novice climber, the hardship and discomfort of the climb was an experience he never wanted to repeat, and never did


Turning his passion and business degrees into leading others to realize their dreams, David created multi-million dollar adventure travel companies in Central and South America, Africa and the Himalaya. He enjoys relaxing at this safari lodge in the heart of the Serengeti along

We had the jaw dropping pleasure of hearing David speak to our company. Not every day you get to hear from someone who has sat on the summit of Everest 鈥 and plenty of other highest mountains in the world. David taught us it's all about the people you meet, the relationships you make and who's with you at the top. One of the most compelling presentations we鈥檝e heard.


From his first words to last, David energized our team by breaking through limits and adapting to whatever the environment throws as you. It's all about that moving past those limiting steps!
