At the age of 18 Jeff was thrust into the world of big air and powder skiing when he was kidnapped by a renegade group of ne’er do wells called the Jackson Hole Air Force. For over 25 years, they’ve commanded him to demolish pristine powder slopes with his skis and to hurl his body from random large objects. It’s now Jeff's unyielding goal to experience breakthrough moments while inspiring others to abandon their own limiting perceptions. In the winter he focuses on creating high grade visual entertainment for the mountain minded people of the world and delivering deep powder updates as a JHMR snow reporter. In the Summer months he enjoys fabric dying and painting from his home in Wilson, while contemplating the memory of things yet to come.
What do you do to create balance in your life?
I find balance in life is, conversely created by consciously knocking yourself out of your comfort zones. Peak experiences followed by centering reflection...repeat.
What inspiration do you find in the outdoors?
I find inspiration to get outdoors in the stark contrasts found in nature. The silence of an empty frozen forest compared to the chaotic fury of a wind blasted ridge, or the amazing color of blue sky behind a field of wildflowers vs a monochromatic summit on a greybird day. The blazing heat and the bitting cold. These are the things that bring me out.
What does Let The Outside In mean to you?
The best way to let the outside in is to be fully “with it”; To completely immerse yourself in the moment and to throw all conscious technique to the wind. By not trying to steer the ship we are free to ride the wave wherever it wants to flow.
