Coombs Outdoors Donation

We are happy to announce that we will be donating $1,000 per our 5% back program to Coombs Outdoors. In addition, we will hold an online silent auction for a pair of our Lupine skis. 100% of the winning bid will go directly to Coombs Outdoors. The auction will conclude at midnight on Friday, July 17th. Please send your bid to: or to our direct message on Instagram or Facebook. Buyer chooses length and and width and the skis will come with a custom engraving commemorating their purpose. These gifts will be made through the Old Bill's Fundraiser so that they qualify for a partial matching gift from the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole.

An old idiom suggests that if you want to change the world, the best place to start is at home. Here in Teton Valley we have a Hispanic and Latino community that makes up around a third of our population - we don't see that same diversity on the ski hill and would like to help support inclusion in skiing. We feel that we can join a national conversation about racial equality and fair treatment by continuing our support of Coombs Outdoors whose vision is: "A world in which all kids are able to reap the benefits of the great outdoors, regardless of socio-economic, racial or cultural barriers."
Bid high for this great cause! We will start the bidding at $450. MSRP on the Lupines is $749 and this pair will come with a custom engraved reminder about the benefit.

    Hi Kristin – Coombs Outdoors was founded to address that very issue. We make skiing accessible to kids – and often their parents – who are living in poverty in and around Jackson. Last winter we had 250 kids and parents in our skiing programs – costing them less than $200 for the entire season, including gear. We also have summer programming. Sego is donating proceeds from the auction, plus $1,000 to support this programming. Check us out at

    It is great that we want inclusion in skiing. Yes, you have a huge hispanic community. dishwahsers, hotel employees, also lots of broke white kiddos too (I am one) they CANNOT AFFORD to ski at Jackson Hole prices, or anything less than maybe 50 bucks for a lift ticket. They make 10 bucks an hour. Increase wages, and lower lift ticket prices. When that happens, there might be more diversity. Marketing is a stupid strategy and does nothing. Have you interviewed any of the minorities, they have zero interest in skiing mostly? Nice skis though
