In this week’s episode of the Jackson Hole Connection, Stephan visits with Bill Briggs. Bill is not only a Jackson Hole legend, but a world ski legend, making it into five ski hall of fames. Bill first came out to Jackson in the 50’s on a ski trip out to Sun Valley, Idaho. After a quick stop over to ski at Snow King, Bill knew this is the place he wanted to call home.

In this episode, Stephan and Bill talk about Bill’s achievement of becoming the first person to ski the Grand Teton, being a founding member of the Church of Scientology, the Stagecoach Band and the love of the valley.

To connect with Bill, you can find him most Sundays at “Church” playing in the Stagecoach Band at the Stagecoach Bar.
