This Week on the Journal: Celebrating Skiing in our National Parks.
GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

Alpinists have been summiting Grand Teton since 1872, but in June of 1971, Maine native Bill Briggs brought something to the summit no one had before him: his skis.
It was an unlikely journey for Briggs, who had to endure multiple hip surgeries as a child to even be able to walk. His successful descent (which required a free rappel with skis on) would immortalize him as one of the icons of big mountain skiing and reinvent what was possible to accomplish in the park.
Today there are four additional routes down the iconic mountain other than the Briggs route (pictured). Read more at the link in our bio.

"@astismittens was conceived as a result of two events. First, a close friend of mine was canoeing across Northern Canada and, while traveling, traded goods with the local Cree Indians. My friend swapped his Swiss Army knife for a pair of Cree mittens, which had been cut and sewn by the tribe. In fact, Astis means “mitten” in the Cree language. Eventually, I ended up spending almost 10 years of skiing while neatly protected by those handmade products. Although I had always found myself quite cold when on a backcountry ski excursion, the caribou leather mittens designed by the Cree kept my hands warm and offered quite a bit of dexterity not found in contemporary gloves on the market at the time.
Even prior to my friend’s visit with the Cree I had been thinking about a way to marry my passion for skiing with a business idea but it was the second event that forced me into entrepreneurship; in a fit of hunger my pet dog took hold of the original Cree mittens thinking that they were a toy or a snack. Knowing how much those mittens had meant to me, and how well they had performed over the past several years lead me to remake those high quality products for myself and that effort became the final impetus for the founding of the Astis brand." -Bradford Peterson

For centuries, people crossed the Alps out of necessity and hired local inhabitants to guide them through the rugged terrain. As the romance with the mountains grew, they traded necessity for curiosity and the Alpine Guide was born. The Alps & Meters Alpine Guide Sweater is back in limited stock. #designedbytradition
