Jake Skeen

Jake grew up in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia and has since lived in Col­orado, Wyoming and Wash­ing­ton. A pas­sion for ski moun­taineer­ing and explor­ing new ter­rain has tak­en him to the Alas­ka Range, Chilean Andes and the Euro­pean Alps. Jake enjoys a vari­ety of objec­tives from pure rock climbs to long alpine endeav­ors. He spends the sum­mer guid­ing alpine climbs in the Cas­cades. Once the snow starts falling, Jake shifts gears to work­ing as an avalanche edu­ca­tor, ski patroller and fore­cast­er. He has a Pro­fes­sion­al Lev­el 2 Avalanche cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, a Wilder­ness EMT, and is pur­su­ing AMGA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in all dis­ci­plines. Jake is dri­ven by his affin­i­ty for being in the moun­tains and is eager to share those expe­ri­ences with others.
