What’s your favorite way to spend a winter day in Jackson?

My ideal way to spend a winter day in Jackson is to wake up before sunrise for a long ski tour in Grand Teton National Park. I love getting up high in the mountains and skiing through the technical terrain. To end the perfect day, dinner in town at El Abuelito or Everest Momo Shack is a must.

What’s the best book you’ve read recently?

I recently read Malcom Gladwell’s Talking to Strangers. As a history major, I appreciated Gladwell’s comparisons between contemporary issues and historical case studies. This book presented an incredibly relevant examination of our difficulty with and intrinsic biases towards communicating with people we don’t know. I found it hard to put down!
