Rendezvous Hill Climb: An Ode to Chris Onufer

If there was ever a person more comfortable or happy in the mountains than Chris Onufer, I have yet to meet them.  Chris, a long time Aerial Tram mechanic and fixture at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, died tragically in 2012.  Whether you knew Chris or not, his spirit can be felt at the Aerial […]

High Alpine Adventure with Griffin Post

Welcome to my Journey of Running with Eric Orton – A Story of an Unruly Athlete and Reluctant Competitor

I’ve called Jackson Hole home for over 10 years now.  I moved to the Tetons out of an obsession with skiing, and ended up staying year round because of what you might call a “single track mind”.   Over the years, when the trails weren’t covered in snow, I would spend as much time as I […]
