Matt Gontarek

Matt was born and raised in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, IL.

Growing up, Matt would watch local on the 8’s on the Weather Channel every ten minutes for hours. This is where he started to develop a passion for weather. Coming from the Midwest, Matt enjoys all four seasons, but Fall and Winter are his favorites.

In his free time, Matt enjoys hiking, weight lifting, playing sports, or watching a good movie. He also enjoys photography and listening to music.

Matt is excited to be living in such a beautiful area of the country and cannot wait to explore everything the Black Hills has to offer!
