Matt Tredway and his wife, Dana, are 1983 graduates of Western. Steamboat, Colo., is home and Matt has been very involved in that community for 29 years. Matt’s two daughters work together in their own clothing design business in Nashville. Matt was a student of Western’s first outdoor education semester and that experience shaped his life. Matt was an instructor for The National Outdoor Leadership School and founded Everything Outdoor Steamboat, designed to give students a chance to experience rock and ice climbing, backpacking, winter mountaineering, 14ers, kayaking and horse packing. Climbing is Matt’s passion and he has been on expeditions around the world, including Alaska’s Denali, peaks in Canada, Peru, Kilimanjaro, Cho Oyu in Tibet and an ‘06 Everest bid. Matt heads a construction company and is managing partner in a real estate development company. He serves on a variety of boards, including the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. He teaches alpine skiing for Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation. Matt is excited to carry on a family tradition of promoting Western that dates back to 1963.
