Video: How Ski Legend Bill Briggs Ended Up in Jackson

Bill Briggs, 87, is regarded as the father of North American extreme skiing, largely on virtue of his first descent of the Grand Teton back in 1971. A living legend, Bill's impact on Jackson's culture is hard to overstate. His descent of the Grand has inspired generations of pilgrims to the Tetons, and while his skiing has slowed down a bit, he still plays a starring role in the community.

Briggs performs with the Stagecoach Band at "Sunday Church" in Wilson to this day, exactly as he has for more than fifty years, as well as hosting the weekly "Hootenanny" open mic at Dornan's. We caught up with Briggs to learn about why he moved to Jackson, and hear a bit about his early years in the area. 

What a legend indeed!
We love you, Bill, from all of us here at limo hiring Bristol

Those who spend most of their winters gliding on snow will tell you that it’s actually fairly forgiving. There are those skiers, however, who take the belief that snow is soft to a whole other level. Take Owen Leeper for example. The Jackson Hole local and big mountain skier has been tearing it up for a while. His new video is a great combination of skiing classic lines around Jackson Hole in as big a way as possible. There’s no other way to describe the straight lines, big air jumps, and
