Christopher Ebeling

Guide: Washington

A native of Oregon, Chris began spending time in the cascades skiing and climbing early in his childhood. His formative years included many exploits in the mountains, including volcano summits, backpacking much of the Oregon PCT, ski racing at a national level, and bike-packing the coast of British Columbia. Chris later moved to Montana to pursue an education and explore the Rockies. Across over a decade in Montana, Chris graduated Montana State University with a degree in Photography and digital media, as well as developed a love for ice climbing, rock climbing, backcountry skiing, and alpine climbing.

Chris now calls Jackson Hole home and spends much of his winter skiing the backcountry shangri-la of the Teton Mountains. In the summer he can be found alpine and rock climbing in the Pacific Northwest, Tetons, and Northern Rockies. He has even been rumored to spend the occasional month biking and climbing in the Utah Desert.

Chris guides and instructs full time year round in the Ski, Alpine, Rock, Ice and Expedition disciplines across the Western US and S America. He enjoys guiding due to the opportunity to share the environments, experiences, and friendship of the mountains with many diverse people.

    It’s Not Awkward, It’s Reality As adults, we’ve got our bathroom & “private part” habits down. We know how to keep ourselves comfortable, clean, and efficient. But what happens when we step into the backcountry for the day? For several nights? For a month-long expedition? For those heading into the backcountry with a female anatomy, […]

  • Gear Review: Fozzils Bowls

    By Mike Hawkins It has been a long day – one of the most demanding climbing days you have ever experienced. Your legs are wrecked. Your back is sore and you have small bruises on your hips from your hipbelt. You have sunscreen caked into every nook and cranny, but even that didn’t keep you […]

  • Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
