About Woody Lowder

Woody is the Director of our Colorado Branch, a native Texan, grew up skiing in Colorado, but it wasn’t until his college years in Boulder where he fell in love with the backcountry. Since then he has skied steep descents in Montana, Alaska, and Chamonix, France, but the Tetons are where Woody has spent the past eight winters honing in on his passion for ski mountaineering. When there’s no more snow to be skied, Woody spends the summer months perfecting his rope skills while summiting some of the Tetons’ highest peaks. Woody is excited to have joined the JHMG team to be able to pass on his appreciation for the mountains through guiding and teaching while continuing to work towards full IFMGA/AMGA certification. Whether you’re looking for powder laps on the pass or skiing the Grand Teton, Woody is up for any kind of adventure that will help you realize all that you are capable of.

  • I have been skiing my entire life from alpine ski racing to fun Heli ski trips in Canada. In all my years (more than 45!) of skiing, this was in the top two for amazing skiing and adventure! Woody's expert knowledge of the park as well as his expertise in guiding/safety made my first big back country ski weekend one of the best. Although there were other groups out there, Woody knew just where to go to provide us with fresh tracks and deep powder for two days. Looking forward to more trips with JHMG!

  • Always professional, always personable, always safe, always considerate. They take the time to develop a plan with the client that creates a fun and challenging experience; also, they provide valuable teaching moments along the way. I look forward to using their services again.
