Meet the Open Airists: Matt
Introducing our first ‘seasonal staff’ member, alpinist and climber Matt.
Hi! I’m Matt and I’ve been part time at Open Air for 5 years now. I can work across the shop, but I spend most of my time in the footwear and climbing sections.
I’ve been camping and hiking since I was young as a part of scouts. I’m a keen hiker and climber. North Wales is one of my favourite places to get away for regular trips as well as Cheddar Gorge for some sport climbing and I have loved all my time spent trekking abroad in Corsica, Germany and Peru. One of my favourite parts of working at Open Air is hearing about other people’s trips and where customers are planning on going; I get really bad wanderlust from it! I can’t wait to get back to climbing and hiking when lockdown is over.
