Game on. Weather is looking good for D-Day: Sunday, May 27th. Have your fingers crossed for Jeremy, as he tackles Bloody Couloir. Drop IN. Do What You Love.
Meet Jeremy Mcghee. Jeremy has a passion for life that is contagious. As a paraplegic, he became tired of being left behind when his friends went off on adventures in the mountains. He became obsessed with climbing and skiing the Bloody Couloir, located in the High Sierras outside Mammoth Lakes, CA. Jeremy documented his experience in the film” Drop In Bloody Couloir”. He is currently traveling through mountain communities premiering his film and partnering with local adaptive sports organizations to increase awareness of adaptive possibilities and help raise funds for adaptive projects. His message is simple- “Do What You Love!”.Jeremy will be in Jackson,WY screening his film on Tuesday, January 28, 7:00pm at the Pink Garter Theater. The showing is free, with a suggested donation of $10. Proceeds will benefit the Drop In Project and Teton Adaptive Sports. Please plan on attending and support a man with great spirit and a great story!
In appreciation to the community for helping Jackson Hole Mountain Resort being named the #1 ski resort in North America by Ski Magazine, JHMR hosted a ski free day on November 29. Over 4000 people flocked to the resort to take advantage of this great opportunity. As a part of the idea of giving back, all those skiing free were encouraged to donate to 2 local nonprofits, Teton Adaptive Sports and Friends of Pathways, with JHMR matching all donations. TAS ans FOP each received over $2000. TAS has earmarked these funds for our TAS Winter Sports Scholarship Fund. This is a great start as we will be assisting many adaptive skiers at Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole and need all the help we can get. Thanks JHMR!
Snow came early again to Wyoming this year. Early snow in September, a bit more in October. This picture was taken November 2. With additional snow since then, Grand Targhee opened yesterday, 11/22, and Jackson Hole will open Thanksgiving Day. See the Winter page for this years schedule. It’s time- wax ‘em up!
