Ben Jones has spent the last 10 years working as a professional guide and instructor in Alaska, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, British Columbia, Norway, Argentina, Nepal, Tanzania, Indonesia and Mexico. Based out of Jackson Hole, Ben is rarely found in town and instead can be found on rock, ice, or, his favorite, snow. Ben has instructed courses in mountaineering, backcountry skiing, snowboarding, and horsepacking. While teaching mountaineering at the National Outdoor Leadership School, Ben got to extensively explore the glaciers of the Chugach mountains, Wrangells, eastern Alaska range, and remote mountains in British Columbia, Wyoming, and Idaho. Now a guide at Alpine Ascent International, Ben splits his time between Nepal, Alaska, and Africa. In his spare time, Ben enjoys skiing, climbing, metal work, fixin’ things, and working on his Spanish and Swahili.
