JHMR: A Love Affair With Your Local Resort

A Love Letter to Jackson Hole, foreword
By Kainen Krueger

I moved to Jackson in December 2022 to intern for Teton Gravity Research.

As soon as I arrived, Todd Jones, Co-Founder and JK, Head of Production sent me out to film with Kai Jones and Tim Durtschi. Filmmaking in the mountains has been a lifelong dream and I couldn't believe it was all happening so quickly. 

Being previously a full-time backcountry snowboarder, I also fell in love with a resort for the first time and recognized the big red cable car for what it is, one of the greatest art installations in the history of mankind.

Inspired by a few words from my mentor and good friend Todd Jones, I was motivated to write and recite a poem, overlaid with TGR footage shot in and around the resort, and share it with all of you. Thank you Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, for inspiring a tradition that has gathered so many people together over the years.  Thank you for helping us to create this unique lifestyle and inspiring us to live the dream.

Read the full poem.
