’m a professional snowboarder born and raised in the town of Jackson, WY. I started skiing at the age of 2 with the support of my dad who was on the JHMR ski patrol for over 25 years. I switch over to snowboarding or a.k.a “ The Dark Side”, as my dad would call it, at the age of 6. With snowboarding being the new fun thing in the mountains it became clear to me that I wanted to work as hard as I possibly could to achieve the dream of being a professional snowboarder. I competed at a young age and as I got older I started to get more interested in the filming side of the sport. I grew up watching snowboard videos with idols I looked up to my whole life. The last three years I worked on the new Red Bull Media House movie called, “The Fourth Phase” and Arbor Snowboards movie, “ Cosa Nostra”. Im so grateful to be doing what I do for a living and wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of my sponsors and amazing family. I’m currently working on new film projects and hope to live this dream, for many more years to come.
For most big mountain skiers- powder, mountains and big lines occupy the entirety of their daylight hours and even dreams. Hadley Hammer does not fit this stereotype. Though she crushes the big lines with the best of them as demonstrated with her competition record on the Freeride World Tour and film segments with Teton Gravity Research and Sherpas Cinema, Hadley also happens to be a sommelier, gourmet chef, book nerd, and climber to name just a fraction of her side hobbies. Growing up in Jackson, WY, Hadley was brought up in the mountains, spending all her time chasing her brothers around the Tetons. As college approached, Hadley recognized the benefits of a formal career outside of her mountain life though and and headed east for a B.A in Hospitality and Economics. After a few years working in the urban hotel world, she recognized a key component missing and headed back to her mountain base to achieve a greater balance between career and lifestyle. Cultivated by rock climbing and skiing before she could even walk, balance is the name of her game and now manifests itself in her big mountain skiing pursuits and complimentary lifestyle.
Ian Walsh is widly know in the surfing community as one of the best big wave surfers in the world. Not surprisingly his talent on the water transfers to the snow covered mountains of Jackson Hole. At first Ian viewed snowboarding as an escape from the routine of riding waves year round, however snowboarding quickly became a new found passion.
From the sea to the mountains, Bryan Iguchi has mastered nearly everything in between. The "Guch" has taken his California style and turned it into something special. One of the best in the biz, Brian has mentored many others on this list, and its to no surprise they joined him as Jackson Hole Mountain Resort athletes.
Local ripper Forrest Jillson has been ascending the ranks of the freeskiing world over the last couple of seasons. Having grown up in Jackson and with a father on ski patrol, Forrest's abilities are unquestioned and his passion for this place is much the same. We're excited to see what is next for Forrest.

A Colorado native, Owen Leeper might be one of the only people more comfortable in the air and inverted than standing on his own two feet.

Coming from a family where snowboarding and pushing limits in the great outdoors runs in the blood, Blake was already strapping in and gliding down the snow-covered hills of Vermont’s backcountry at the age of four. A few years later his family picked up shop and headed west, settling in Jackson Hole, WY — a move that would forever distinguish the young rider’s career.
