Who We Are

Doug Workman is the man behind the Mammut Avalanche Safety Blog.  He began skiing when he was 4 years old on the blue ice that passes for powder in New England. Since 2000 he has lived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Doug is an accomplished climber and skier, having climbed all over the world as well as established new routes in Alaska, Pakistan and China, and made significant ski descents in the Tetons and elsewhere.  Doug spends much of the year guiding both climbing and ski mountaineering in the Tetons for Jackson Hole Mountain Guides and High Mountain Helicopter Skiing.  He worked for the Jackson Hole Ski Patrol from 2005-2012. He has spent more than 10 seasons guiding for Valdez Heli-Ski Guides in Alaska and has guided skiers from Denali's summit. Doug is a published writer whose work has appeared in Powder, Alpinist and Climbing Magazines, the American Alpine Journal, and the Jackson Hole Planet.  Doug has been on the Mammut Athlete Team for many years, and is Mammut’s North American snow safety technical representative. 

Mammut staff, athletes and partners will contribute as well.  Every one of us brings a level of passion and a wide variety of experience and perspectives that we hope will contribute to making this blog a useful resource for anyone interested in being safer in the mountains.

This blog was created in large part to serve as an easily searchable clearinghouse for all sorts of information about and resources for Mammut avalanche safety products.  If you have a question about Mammut avalanche safety equipment and you cant find the answer here, you can send Doug an email at:  mammutavalanchesafety@gmail.com
