Why would Jackson Hole Mountain Resort sponsor a professional surfer? Well, it turns out that Ian Walsh is an excellent snowboarder on top of his world-famous surfing skills. The Maui native is a big fan of Jackson Hole, consistently visiting the resort to enjoy the unparalleled inbounds terrain. After he and Mark Carter began shredding in the Tetons, Walsh discovered a new passion for snowboarding.
From my very first visit to Jackson Hole the place completely captivated me; the people, the mountains, the space, the town, and everything in between. I learned how to snowboard at JHMR and I haven’t missed a winter trip since, even at the cost of a few big swells.
You can catch Carter in TGR's Far Out.
People say that surfing and snowboarding are two chips off of the same block, and Walshy is providing solid evidence to that effect.
