Splash of L.I.M.E. Speaker 2017: Lessons from the Summits with Dr. Jon Kedrowski

Jon Kedrowski Ph.D. grew up in Vail, Colorado where he has over 1,000 ascents of the Colorado peaks, including hundreds of ski descents, (Including all of Colorado's 14,000' peaks and nearly all the 13ers) in every season.

After sharing some stories from the 14ers here in Colorado mainly climbing and skiing, Jon will mix in some lessons on vital topics like mountain safety, general awareness and risk management.

Jon has climbed 6 of the 7 continental summits, including Mt. Everest in 2012. His training ground also included the mighty Mount Rainier volcano which he has climbed over 25 times and skied on numerous occasions. He has summitted all 74 named 14,000' peaks in the lower 48 U.S. (CA, WA, & CO) as well.

His expeditions to Everest in recent years (2012 & 2015) have been featured on Discovery Channel, Smithsonian, NBC, Dateline NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, and CNN. On April 25, 2015, Jon was at Everest Base camp in Nepal when a devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck. All summit attempts were aborted but Jon was able to assist the Nepalese people with rescue efforts and collect earthquake data for the USGS.

In addition to Everest, Jon also skied Gasherbrum II in Pakistan in 2013, an 8000m peak near K2 in the Karakoram.

Jon is the author of three books: “Sleeping on the Summits: Colorado Fourteener High Bivys," “Skiing and Sleeping on the Summits: Cascade Volcanoes” & "Classic Colorado Ski Descents.” He is also an expedition leader, guide, and sought-after keynote speaker. In Jon’s talks, mountains are metaphors for accomplishing goals in life, both professionally and personally.
