TEKO® Named the Official Sock of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

Boulder, CO – May 18, 2009  – TEKO, the innovation leader in sustainable, high performance socks, is pleased to announce that the company has been named the exclusive sock partner of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR). 

The partnership brings together two organizations with longstanding and successful environmental records.  TEKO will support several JHMR sponsored events, including the popular Steep and Deep camps.  In addition, TEKO and JHMR will develop creative, cross-promotional programs at retail, designed to expose more people to all that the Jackson Hole resort has to offer. 

“We are thrilled to enter this partnership with Jackson Hole,” said Chip Coe, CEO of TEKO. “Our two companies share a deep respect for the environment as demonstrated by our mutual and unwavering commitment to its conservation. Also, as a producer of both winter and summer high performance socks, TEKO has a natural place at Jackson Hole year round.”

JHMR has long respected the natural beauty and ecological significance of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that surrounds it. The resort maintains a comprehensive environmental program that was developed in harmony with its environment. In 2006, JHMR achieved ISO 14001 certification, the second of only two ski resorts, and one of the smaller companies in the US, to achieve this recognition. ISO 14001 certification is the most widely known and respected environmental stamp of approval, which demonstrates responsible management of environmental impacts.

“Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is focused on partnering with companies that share our environmental values and we are proud to add TEKO to our team,” said Jerry Blann, President JHMR. “It is great to see a manufacturer in the outdoor industry that has met the high demands of adventure seekers while not compromising on their corporate mission.”
