About Doug Workman

Doug Workman began climbing in Converse All-Stars on Connecticut’s Traprock in 1988. Since then he has climbed and skied all over the World including expeditions to Pakistan, China, Alaska, and Antarctica as well as climbing trips throughout Europe and North America—including a day trip up El Capitan’s “Triple Direct” and multiple trips up the “Nose” and “Astroman” in Yosemite. He began guiding for Jackson Hole Mountain Guides in 2001. As a guide for JHMG, Doug has guided hundreds of guests up the Grand Teton and over a dozen brave souls down it on skis.
Doug also currently works for Valdez Heli-Ski Guides, High Mountain Heli Skiing, Ice Axe Expeditions and Jackson Hole Alpine Guides. He has guided skiers off the summit of Denali, guided 5 ski mountaineering trips to the Antarctic Peninsula, and led sail/ski trips to Iceland, Svalbard, and the Lyngen Alps of Norway. Past experience also includes rigging and safety work for National Geographic Television, Camp Four Collective, Chris Davenport Productions, Warren Miller Entertainment, and Teton Gravity Research.

Testimonials

  • Doug Workman is a true professional. Competent, patient, and enjoyable. I would put him on the short list of best guide experiences we have ever had, in any endeavor.

  • Words cannot convey the experience of a winter day out with a JHMG guide taking you on a safe tour of the Tetons. Slow and steady up for a few hours rewards you with an exquisite view of the Tetons in all their majesty. Then, instead of an exhausting, bone-jarring hike back down, take the skins off your skis and ride down in powder that is almost impossible to find in a ski resort. Even a week after the last snowfall, you will still find good snow to ride down on. Even if it’s not a clear and sunny day, it’s a wonderful day out and you’ll want to keep going back until you are rewarded with those magnificent views. If the price for a ride on the Virgin Galactic rocket is $200,000, I’d say a day in the Tetons with a JHMG guide is the most undervalued ticket you can buy!
