Jason Antin, a native of Massachusetts who now calls Colorado home, focuses all of his time on striving to achieve the ultimate work-life balance. He started playing outdoors in the White Mountains of New England at a young age. After graduating from St. Lawrence University he began his guiding career working with adults with developmental disabilities in Boston. His love for teaching mountain craft and sharing the outdoors with others inspired a move to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where he has been working as a guide for over a decade.

Jason is highly trained in risk management and wilderness emergency medicine and is an incredibly competent guide in all areas of mountain exploration. His greatest passion in the outdoors is embarking on endurance-based alpine adventures. Overall, Jason’s goal in guiding is to provide a safe and positive experience that his guests will talk about for years to come!

Some of Jason’s most memorable mountain exploits include summiting Denali twice in a week, once via the Cassin Ridge.  Climbing the Nose In A Day during his first time on El Cap, or combining endurance & alpine skills to create incredible adventures like the “Orizaba Rodeo” or to set a speed record on the Rainier Infinity Loop.

Along with guiding, Jason coaches at the Alpine Training Center Gym in Boulder, CO where he prepares his athletes for the physical and mental rigors of the mountains.  He also continues to work on his Beat Monday project (featured on Outside TV), where Jason utilizes years of mountain experience and looks for creative and challenging ways to squeeze the most adventure out of your standard 2-day weekend.

Off the clock, Jason shares his home in Golden, CO with his wife Jenny and his two daughters Avery and Andora. He enjoys moving quickly in the mountains over all mediums that mother nature shares with us whether that be trails, rock, ice or snow.
