Jordan Tiernan

Jordan's love for mountain sports was first born climbing on Peak Gritstone as a teenager, before Scotland sparked his skiing journey on the classic steep grade I/II gullies. 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 allowed him to spend four years climbing and skiing in high-alpine terrain, furthering his knowledge in all aspects of climbing and ski mountaineering. During his final winter season in Tignes, Jordan joined forces with fellow ski mountaineers to write Tignes' Definitive Off-Piste Guidebook, including over 320 unique descents spread over 400 pages bursting full of detail.
