Philip was born in Georgia and raised in the Northeast. In 1996 his love of the mountains led him to Jackson, where he’s since lived year round. The Tetons inspired him to begin climbing in earnest in 1997, amassing extensive knowledge of over 150 Teton routes. A JHMG guide since 2009, Philip guides in the Tetons, Beartooths, Wind Rivers and Red Rock, NV. Winters are spent ski patrolling at Jackson’s cold and steep town hill, Snow King Resort. Memorable routes include snowboarding the Grand and a solo enchainment of the North face of Teewinot, North Ridge of Mt Owen and the East Ridge of the Grand Teton in a day.
Wow! What can I say? Thank you! I never thought I’d climb again and you guys gave me the confidence and encouragement to do it again. Today’s hike was long, but the view well worth it. Thanks for sharing a part of your life with me. Thanks again.
JHMG will teach you what you desire and create exceptional moments in the mountain setting.

My experiences with JHMG have been uniformly outstanding. Each guide that has worked with me over the years has taken a genuine interest in helping me advance my climbing. The levels of professionalism, expertise, and interest in teaching among the guides I have worked with has been top-notch.

If you want to climb safely with confidence and learn about WHAT you are actually doing and climbing…Pick JHMG. Hands down the best guys for the job! YEARS of experience and professionalism are very obvious from the moment you step inside the shop. Nice guys, well trained and fun to climb with!

Words cannot convey the experience of a winter day out with a JHMG guide taking you on a safe tour of the Tetons. Slow and steady up for a few hours rewards you with an exquisite view of the Tetons in all their majesty. Then, instead of an exhausting, bone-jarring hike back down, take the skins off your skis and ride down in powder that is almost impossible to find in a ski resort. Even a week after the last snowfall, you will still find good snow to ride down on. Even if it’s not a clear and sunny day, it’s a wonderful day out and you’ll want to keep going back until you are rewarded with those magnificent views. If the price for a ride on the Virgin Galactic rocket is $200,000, I’d say a day in the Tetons with a JHMG guide is the most undervalued ticket you can buy!
