About Jed Workman

Jed Workman was originally introduced to the mountains on a tiny ski slope in Connecticut at age five. In 1988 his high school outdoor program tied him into his first climbing rope and lured him into an obsession. Jed moved to Salt Lake City in 1990 where he pursued a BFA at the University of Utah while exploring Utah’s rock and snow filled mountains. A few years working in the Black Diamond warehouse enabled him to build a small climbing arsenal and put away enough pennies to spend the summers in Yosemite. Several years in Yosemite lead to expeditions to Alaska, Pakistan and China.

In 2003 Jed permanently moved to the Matanuska Valley of Alaska. Since 2000, Jed has guided for NOLS, the Alaska Mountaineering School, Jackson Hole Mountain Guides and for Valdez Heli-Ski Guides. Jed has immersed himself in Alaska with his wife Allie, where they are just as likely to shoot a moose, net a salmon, ski a couloir or clip a quick-draw.

Testimonials

  • Totally positive experience climbing the Grand Teton that exceeded my expectations. Guides Nate, Jed and Noah were professional, knowledgeable, with great senses of humor, and I felt totally safe and encouraged to push my limits of climbing to gain confidence and still have fun. Also to meet Rob Hesse and share conversation at high camp was very memorable. The trip was well organized and executed with care and precision. The equipment and accommodations were premier...very comfortable and well laid out. The food was good and satisfying. JHMG made this trip the best climbing experience of my life. Well done JHMG!

  • Jed was awesome. Very knowledgeable and personable. We had a great time and made a lot of jokes but when things needed to be serious he was on point.

  • Our guide, Jed Workman, was really great – experienced, funny, sociable and perceptive. A great mix of giving guidance, encouraging and humor.  Really liked his stories and perspective on climbing and guiding.  He is an excellent guide,  I would sign up with him again. Very glad I choose JHMG over other companies. 3 day format is better than 2 day, which would have been too quick. All staff at JHMG were friendly and professional. Highly satisfied!
