bigger steeper faster: a history of ski mountainering in the tetons
On Tuesday, March 20th, 2012 outdoor enthusiasts gathered at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center to attend Bigger Steeper Faster: A History of Ski Mountaineering in the Tetons, hosted by Grand Teton National Park Foundation. It was an evening of insightful reflection and riveting stories about the evolution of Teton ski mountaineering by Tom Turiano, Greater Yellowstone ski pioneer, Brian Harder, premier endurance athlete, and Foundation board member, American ski mountaineer, and Marmot athlete and brand ambassador, Mark Newcomb.
