Jason might seem somewhat serious when you first meet him, but be prepared, soon he will start doing glacial pirouettes in his monkey hat (see photo). Jason manages to get a lot of both fun and talent into his 5’8″ and 130lbs, and, despite being a decade or more the senior of some of our younger guides, has more energy than anyone on staff. With so many years of experience guiding in Wrangell-St. Elias, he’s familiar with many areas of the park, but two of his favorite trips are the Seven Pass Route and High Pass Odyssey for the rugged wilderness backpacking they provide.
Some of Jason’s energy and motivation comes from knowing that he could still be in his past job, as a bio-medical research scientist. Needless to say, he’s a pretty smart dude!
Jason spends the winters climbing in the Rockies of Colorado and around the globe. He is also a budding illustrator, and we are awaiting his first publication!
