Students Earn Free Matterhorn Boots

On May 5, 2014 five students from the Mining Engineering Department at the U will depart for Martinsburg, Pennsylvania to the Matterhorn Mining Boot Company.

Matterhorn sponsored a contest for Mining Engineering students at the U. Students participated in the contest by earning points through department involvement. The five students with the most points received a trip to Pennsylvania, custom made mining boots, and the opportunity to watch those custom boots be made in the Matterhorn factory.
