Jason DenleyJDenley

Hey adventure seeking white knuckle enthusiasts my name is Jason and I have been professionally guiding since 2011. I grew up in Memphis, TN enjoying the blues and the barbecue, but I needed more in my life. I began guiding in Wrangell St.Elias National Park and the Alaska Range and my home base has been the Ouray/Telluride area of Colorado for the last 7 years. I am a Lead Avalanche Instructor providing education to recreational travelers and Military/FBI special operations teams and ski guiding through most of the winter months. I have Avalanche Rec Levels 1 and 2, Pro Avalanche Levels 1 and 2, Lead Avy Instructor and AMGA Ski, Rock, Ice and Alpine certifications. My most valuable training has come from the mentors that invested in me and believed in me and shared with me their decades of experience. I have led multiple successful high altitude expeditions on several continents around the world. One of the most rewarding parts of my job is to teaching, demonstrating, and practicing the skills to manage risk, improving technique and efficiencies, and watching guests achieve what they never thought possible. Sharing time in the mountains with people from all over the world is truly a privilege and something I used to only dream of. The combination of the relationships built and the effort put forth builds lifelong memories and friendships that I find invaluable. I am the type of guide that wants to empower you by sharing the knowledge and experience that has been passed down to me, allowing you to be an effective and strong team member on any trip. Whether you want to climb the biggest peaks in the world, ski the steepest deepest couloir, increase your knowledge, or just have a mellow adventure in the mountains, I would love to be part of that journey.
