Kajsa Krieger
Guide: Mount Rainier, Cascades

Kajsa Krieger has called the mountains home since moving to Jackson Hole in 2000. She has worked as a mountain guide, professional ski patroller, avalanche course instructor, and naturalist in Wyoming, Alaska, California, Washington, and South America. She began guiding for Alpine Ascents in 2009 and has loved meeting people from all walks of life who come to climb in the Cascades. In the winter, Kajsa sticks to the snow as a ski patroller for the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Recently, Kajsa has had her biggest and most rewarding adventure while raising her beautiful daughter, who is fond of messes, chasing the rallydog, and climbing just about everything. When not mothering or in the mountains, Kajsa loves to curl up with a good book, bake banana bread, and be with good friends.
