On Thursday, December 8, Outerlocal presented “From Cleated Boots to Ski Descents: The Past, Present and Future of Teton Guiding” in Jackson, Wyoming. Over 300 climbers and skiers jammed into the cozy Snow King Lodge Room and over 400 people tuned into the livestream online through the Outerlocal, American Alpine Club, and Marmot Facebook pages to listen to seven Teton legends explore the development of American mountain guiding. While the audience feasted on Pinky G’s pizza and New Belgium beer, Himalayan author Brot Coburn moderated the panel discussions with Renny Jackson, Rod Newcomb, Andy Carson, Dick Pownall, Mark Newcomb, Rob Hess and Nat Patridge. Teton icon Dick Pownall was given the “people’s choice awards” for his compelling performance about the golden era of Teton climbing and over $3,000 in proceeds were donated to the Teton Boulder Project to help maintain the newly installed Guides’ Boulder.
