Jason's love for the Boundary Waters is
obvious and contagious!  He's happy to
share his knowledge of the local flora and
fauna, as well as the natural and cultural
history of the region.

He also likes to fish.  Prepare yourself for
the fast action of smallmouth bass, thrill
of big pike, and the fun of a marble-eyed
walleye.  The memories of your campfire
fish fry will remain forever.
In winter, Jason guides dogsledding trips in
and around the Boundary Waters at
Wintergreen Dogsled Lodge. National
Geographic Adventure Magazine calls
Wintergreen "the best in the business."  In
addition to the North Woods, dogsledding
has taken him to the Rocky Mountains and
the Arctic.

Jason has also guided commercial rafting
trips in Colorado and Utah for
Kayak and Rafting Expeditions.

Jason fell in love with the North Woods
when he began guiding Boundary Waters
wilderness canoe trips in the mid-nineties.  
He got his start guiding high school youth
groups.  During that first season, he
developed a reputation for charging back off
into the wilderness on his days off.

There is magic in the feel of a paddle and the movement of a canoe, a magic compounded of distance,
forgotten, the open door to waterways of ages past and a way of life with profound and abiding satisfaction.
