It’s all about the kids

We empower children from low income families by providing opportunities to participate in the outdoor activities that define the mountain town of Jackson Hole. By sharing skiing, soccer and climbing with children who would otherwise lack access to these activities, we strive to create a stronger, healthier, and more integrated mountain community.

Meet Doug

In our world, there will always be individuals who venture out of bounds, be they poets or painters, philosophers or scientists, explorers, or skiers of the steeps. We need these individuals. They show us what is possible.They show us that our world of fences, rules, and conventions is a constantly negotiated boundary and that it is possible to move it.
