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.
