Jason Hummel in Port Angeles 3/12


Recommended Posts



Jason Hummel, a nationally published ski photographer, will share the stories behind the pictures of his mountaineering exploits Saturday, March 12 at 7 pm. The venue is BarN9ne located at 229 West First Street in downtown Port Angeles. Admission is $5 at the door. All ages are welcome. Proceeds will benefit the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club.


Mr. Hummel’s photos have been featured in Backcountry Magazine, The Ski Journal, National Geographic Traveler, and other print and online media.


“Jason is known for his bold ski lines from most of the peaks in the Pacific Northwest, his stunning photographs, and his entertaining stories about both,” says Greg Halberg, event organizer. “Anyone with an interest in outdoor photography or mountain adventures should not miss this show. His photos capture the essence of skiing in a true mountain environment.”


Two brothers, numerous mountains, and an outdoor family led to Jason’s early introduction to the Mountains of Washington State. By 5 years old he was learning to telemark ski on the slopes of Mount Rainier. By his teens he was pioneering steep ski descents, extended ski traverses, and kayaking throughout his local mountains. All along, those early adventures as a kid from Glacier Peak to Mount Olympus inspired him to go further, push deeper, and see more. Today, you’ll find him with a huge backpack, heavy camera tied to his chest, and healthy penchant for abuse set next to his ever present smile.


Notable among Jason’s many ski trips are a traverse of the Bailey Range in the Olympics, a winter ski traverse of the very remote and rugged Pickett Range in North Cascades National Park, and ski descents of Mount Olympus, Mount Baker, Mount Rainier, and Mount Shuksan. Jason also has experience kayaking local rivers. Check out additional stories and photos by Jason at www.cascadecrusades.org and www.alpinestateofmind.com


Prints of his work will be available for purchase. A signed print will be raffled at the event.


This is a “Second Saturday” presentation hosted by the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club. Last month’s show was standing room only, so an early arrival is recommended. BarN9ne has a full menu of food and drinks.
