Jason Dorais - Beal and Grivel Athlete




Jason Dorais recently signed on as a Beal and Grivel athlete.


Jason Dorais spends most of his free time skiing and running the peaks found around the world when he’s not working full-time as a medical professional. After growing up in Indiana and becoming a two-time collegiate All-American in track and field, Jason moved to the mountains to apply his fitness and speed in a much different setting; across ridgelines, atop mountain peaks, and through steep couloirs. In the mountains, Jason focuses on traveling light and fast in order to find a perfect balance between adventure, life, and work. This method of travel through the mountains has has earned him some impressive records as well as the opportunity to represent the U.S.A. during the 2015 ISMF World Championships.

Mountain Resume:
  • Current speed skiing record on the Grand Teton - 5:17
  • Former speed record on Mount Rainier - Car to car in 3:57 (featured in the Powderwhore ski-movie Elevation)
  • Multiple wins/podium places at USSMA national level races which earned Jason a spot on the 2013 and 2015 US Ski Mountaineering Teams
  • Mount Hood Speed Record - 1:44
  • Skied the Teton Trifecta (2011, 2015)
  • Pioneering one-day traverses of the Oquirrh Mountains and the La Sals
