CHALLENGE


 

 

Doug is among the most talented guides I've ever been on a rope with. He's helped me work through routes I thought beyond my reach, and accomplish goals I'd never dreamed of. Climbing and skiing the Grand Teton with Doug was a major turning point in my climbing life.

Alaska's Chugach Range offers arguably the best HELI SKIING in the world, and Doug Workman has led more than a thousand descents in the Chugach with Valdez Heli Ski Guides.  Doug also guides heli-skiers in Iceland, Sweden, and western Wyoming.

Since 2009, Doug and his clients have made numerous ocean voyages across the famous Drake Passage in search of EXPEDITION SKIING on the Antarctic Peninsula. He also leads handcrafted Ski-to-Sea expeditions to Svalbard, Norway, and Iceland, mid-winter powder safaris to the Japanese Alps of Hakuba, and ski touring expeditions to Morocco's High Atlas Mountains.

ALPINE CLIMBING is Doug's summertime passion and profession--making the Tetons the perfect locale for work and play. He's made expeditions and first ascents in Pakistan's Karakoram, Alaska's Kichatna Spires, and China's Tien Shan. 

In the last decade, Workman has been at the forefront of an American renaissance in SKI MOUNTAINEERING, guiding more skiers from the top of Wyoming’s Grand Teton than anyone else. Doug and his clients have skied such spectacular Teton summits as Mount Moran, Buck Mountain, Teewinot, the South and the Middle Teton. In Alaska, Workman has led numerous ski-mountaineers to and from the summit of 20,320-foot Denali, North America’s highest peak. 


Doug lives in Jackson, Wyoming with his wife Berry and daughter Georgia. Read more about Doug and his career in the mountains here.
