Evans, founder of MountainVision Inc., grew up scampering around the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina but soon found that the higher mountains of Colorado would be the ideal setting to challenge himself as a mountain guide. At the age of 19, he packed up and relocated to the Colorado Front Range where he began his love affair with the Rocky Mountains. By the mid-90s, he was guiding clients, as well as working search and rescue, on North America’s highest mountain, Mt. McKinley. But the turning point in Jeff’s guiding abilities came in the early 1990s when he embraced the unimaginable responsibility to guide a then unknown and blind climber, Erik Weihenmayer. Together, they problem solved methods of adventure, travel and communication to tackle the most challenging climbing endeavors ever attempted by a disabled athlete. Some of their more notable ascents include Mt McKinley, El Capitan, Leaning Tower and Aconcagua, culminating with a successful summit of Mt Everest in 2001 that gained much international attention as the first successful blind summit of the highest mountain in the world. Jeff's program "Guiding Through the Storm" centers around guiding and leadership in this volatile period we are all facing. If leadership is what your group is looking to build on, Jeff is now able to deliver the Franklin Covey Everest Leadership Program in an intense and powerful breakout session. Evans has appeared on ABC’s Expedition Impossible, is the published author of “MountainVision: Lessons Beyond the Summit,” & has played a major role in the award-winning documentaries “Farther Than the Eye Can See,” “Blindsight,” & “High Ground.”
