Jason Dorais

For the past several years Jason's goal has been to step up the “light and fast” game as it pertains to ski mountaineering.

  • Jason Dorais grew up in Indiana far away from the mountains. His athletic background was based in track and field where he was lucky enough to be named a two-time collegiate All-American. Once he was free from the strict regimen of track workouts Jason avidly began to blend aerobic fitness with mountain sports. Mentored by one of the Wasatch “light and fast” crew, Jared Inouye, Jason quickly found himself trying to get as much steep skiing in as possible by using the lightest gear he could find. For the past several years the goal has been to step up the “light and fast” game as it pertains to ski mountaineering.
