Matt Lepp and his co-founders knew right away they aren’t good with desk jobs, so they found a way to move the desks outdoors.
“The first time we looked down the canyon from the top of the falls we knew we were in a special place.”
With his passion for an outdoor lifestyle and seeing an opportunity in tourism, Matt knew that Treetop Flyers was going to be an adventure in entrepreneurship. Since 2010, Matt has been showing both locals and visitors Chase Canyon – a hidden gem filled with waterfalls, wildlife, and an adrenaline rushing activity – ziplining. As a TRU Tourism Management and Marketing alumni and with mentorship support from his faculty, Matt was able to make his passion his paycheck.
