We're pretty sure Gear & Travel Editor Heather Hendricks is thankful for the early pow this year. Wa-pow!
Well, it's that time of the year. Time to indulge in unrelenting butter-based family recipes and bottomless goblets of wine and beer while resurfacing classic family fueds. Of course, one big part of this exclusively 'Murican holiday is giving thanks to the people, places, and things that make life great. We rounded up the TGR office team to let you know what we're thankful for this Thanksgiving.
"I'm thankful for the tens of thousands of TGR fans that come out each and every year and get stoked for winter with TGR. I'm thankful (in advance, with fingers crossed) that mother nature is going to be our friend this winter and give us banner snow years around the world. I'm also thankful that there are only two days left in Movember, and that I will be able to shave the hairy beast off of my upper lip and hopefully be allowed back into my house. I'm especially thankful for that one. As is my wife. And anyone I know. Or that sees me." - Mark Behrednt, Worldwide Tour Director
"I'm thankful for [knock on wood] two healthy knees and shoulders that are currently staying in their sockets." - Blake Campbell, Lead Editor
"I'm thankful for living in the Jackson Hole bubble!" - Greg Epstein, Supervising Producer
"I am thankful for my shred dog, Russ. Oh, and the Tetons!" - Joni McGregor, Social Media Editor
"For Doug Coombs, Jimmy Zell, and the Hunt brothers for showing us the way!" - Steve Jones, Co-Founder
"I'm thankful for having the opportunity to live and work in Jackson Hole, WY. And, my new Jones Solution split board that arrived just before Thanksgiving!" -Katie Metzler, Marketing Coordinator
"I'm thankful for family, friends and the opportunity to live in one of the most amazing places on earth." - Justin Fann, Associate Producer/Editor
"I'm thankful for deep days, great friends, cold beer, and hot tubs." - Brett Neste, Marketing Manager, Worldwide Tour
"I am thankful for the opportunity to spend my life in the outdoors and for the connection to nature that has formed as a result. It has instilled in me a need to protect these great expanses of land so future generations will have the opportunity to be thankful for the same things. I'm constantly reminded of the book Last Child In The Woods by Richard Louv." - Dan Gibeau, Cinematographer
"Friendsgiving and skiing and Thanksgiving!" - Brenna Dyer, Web Developer
"Thankful I get to show my new born son, McCraeleigh, how to shred in his first winter in Jackson!" - Bret Hills, CFO
"I'm thankful for organizations like Protect Our Winters and the people behind them that are working hard to protect the future of snow against the threat of climate change, for the rare goggle that doesn't fog, the rare turn that I don't suck at skiing, and Teton Pass being ten minutres from the office." - Ryan Dunfee, Associate Editor
Happy Thanksgiving and we hope you can find your way into some shredding before sinking the electric knife into the turkey!
