A List of BIPOC Athletes and Explorers You Can Support

Representation influences our psyche whether or not we choose to admit it. It demonstrates what’s possible, it gives us a road map to follow, and most importantly, it shows us that we belong and we’re valued.

​Looking Back on The 2021 Season At Jackson Hole

Kai Jones bidding adieu to yet another epic season at our home mountain Jackson Hole! | Nic Alegre photo. Closing day is always a bittersweet one, meaning our favorite time of year has come to an end yet again. However, we have to say, the ’20-’21 season at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort was certainly one to remember. Like at many other ski resorts, it was the season that almost didn’t happen, thanks to the global Covid-19 pandemic. But, thanks to the hard work of our friends at the resort,
