Jordan Tiernan

Jordan's love for mountain sports was first born from spending time climbing on Peak Gritstone as a teenager. Scotland is where he started his skiing journey on the classic steep winter grade I/II gullies. For the final 2 years of his degree, Jordan researched avalanche decision making within climbers & skiers for his dissertation; giving him an intimate knowledge of the Scottish Highlands in their winter environment. Following on from his degree, he went straight into the heliski industry and has worked for heliski operations both in France and New Zealand. This has allowed him to spend the majority of the past four years climbing and skiing in high-alpine terrain furthering his knowledge in all aspects of climbing and ski mountaineering. It was during his final winter season in Tignes where Jordan joined forces with fellow ski mountaineers to write Tignes' Definitive Off-Piste Guidebook, which includes over 320 unique descents spread over 400 pages bursting full of detail.
