Cattle drivers by summer, gaper drivers by winter. Really, they’re just herd animals…
“Jackson Hole was arguably put on the map by the opening of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, providing access to technical skiing terrain on the boundary of Grand Teton National Park. While locals embraced the new ski culture and ease of access for honing their skills, Jackson increasingly attracted affluent tourists who, in the eyes of those local settlers, ‘were skiers in equipment and clothing only’. The iconic “lifty”, often college educated and master of an array of survival, adventure and drinking skills, was left handling these new herds of visitors and their skis. This 21st century ranch hand managed the “gapers”, unmistakable by their adornment in helmet cameras, use of the “pizza” ski technique and complaints about the cold.”
