Tristan "Teton" Brown
Freeski Shredders Coach
Tristan “Teton” Brown was raised in the scenic mountains of Sun Valley, ID by a rabid pack of talking wolves known as the Brown family. With the help of his wolf pack and a healthy diet of ski racing and elk meat, Teton survived adolescence and made it to adulthood. After pursuing ski racing for 13 years, he switched his focus to freeskiing and big mountain competitions while studying Environmental Studies at CU Boulder. After college, the allure of challenging terrain and deep powder brought Teton to the Tetons, where he spent 3 winters earning – what he calls – a graduate degree in big mountain skiing. These days, he spends the majority of his time outdoors, and gets to ski everyday until his legs are Jell-O.
Teton also tries to stay mindful of his ecological footprint, and occasionally howls at the moon in an attempt to make it snow.
