Athlete Spotlight: Don Watkins

By Stio Mountain on

Growing up in western Pennsylvania in the Laurel Highlands, Don and his family spent every weekend in the winter at the ski resort. After graduating from the University of Vermont, Don road tripped to the Tetons with 6 friends. Surrounded by an endless playground to stoke his love of outdoor adventure, Don committed to making Jackson Hole his home for life.

Now, 10 years later, he's fully living the mountain life with sunrise ski laps on the Pass, a job as a marketing director of a real estate investment firm, a member of the Teton County Search & Rescue, a husband and brand new father.
