Jesse Hall’s childhood in the rustic foothill town of Niwot, CO was spent on the mountain—after all, he was skiing and rock climbing almost from day one. A professional big mountain skier from an early age, Jesse’s prodigious skill on skis took him to the top of the podium in the 2005 North American Extreme skiing championships in Crested Butte, CO, and to third place the following year. Jesse has logged more than 1350 BASE jumps. He nabbed 1st place in Norway for the international 2011 ProBASE tracking race, and has enjoyed a decade-long skydiving career. Jesse is also an aspiring paraglider and speed flier. Jesse moved to Salt Lake City in 2006 to ski, soon expanding his skill set to the skies when he realized SLC’s undisputed status as a BASE jumping mecca. Since then, Jesse has merged his unrivaled talent on skis with his BASE skills to establish himself as one of the world’s best ski BASE jumpers. “My goals are simple,” Jesse explains, “To continue to enjoy the sports I love, and travel to amazing places with friends.” Cheerful and quick with a joke, Jesse pushes limits of his sports while staying safe and looking out for the safety of others around him. His first jump courses for new BASE athletes are legendary in the sport and he has also produced an industry leading parachute packing instructional video.
