Dan Corn is a IFMGA/UIAGA certified guide for Exum Mountain Guides and Alpine Ascents International, is an educator for Alaska Mountaineering School, and a heli guide in Alaska and Iceland. From his early days working as a backcountry ranger in New Hampshire’s White Mountains to joining Cody Townsend last spring on this 50 Project descent of Mount Saint Elias, Dan’s career has taken him all over the world, but he calls the Tetons home.

Dan played a pivotal role in ideating and developing the GFT liner for ZipFit, including coming up with the name “Grand F’in Teton” in homage to his heart home. Dan has been skiing in ZipFits for a decade and has dreamed about making a touring liner that retains the quality of a ZipFit to ski the highest peaks of the world.

“I started to use Zipfits after seeing a pair while ski guiding in Europe. I had always struggled with locking my ankle into place in my boots due to a low volume foot, so I tried a pair in a little ski shop in Verbier. Now a decade later I still use them in all my boots whether I am guiding on the piste or out touring or on expeditions. My feet are key to my job and I am so glad that I stumbled across these liners all those years ago, nothing else has worked quite as well. Today most of my coworkers use ZipFit liners for many of the same reasons I started, the fit is superb, performance can’t be beat, and to top it off they last forever!”
