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 ridge lines, 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 earned him some impressive records as well as the opportunity to represent the U.S.A. during the 2015 and 2019 ISMF World Championships.
