Jessie Haffener – Backcountry Snowcat Ski Guide

Jessie joined us in 19/20 along with her husband Sam to work as a snowcat skiing guides with us.

From Oklahoma, Jessie has a BA of Business Administration from the University of Oklahoma. After college, Jessie moved to Alaska, with Sam, and worked for a variety of avalanche schools and forecasting centers.

Recently Jessie and Sam have been working in the summers for REI Adventures leading hiking trips into the Kenai to Denali wilderness.

Jessie loves hiking, backpacking and navigating, paddling, canyoneering, mountain biking, rock and ice climbing.

Her smile and willingness to do just about anything, including guiding our non-motorized backcountry skiing tours, will allow you to see Jessie working with us on most days.
