Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Selects Mammut’s Avalanche Airbag 3.0 Packs for Ski Patrol Fleet

October 20, 2016

Williston, VT (October 20, 2016) – Mammut, the Swiss quality providers of alpine gear and apparel, and makers of the world’s most advanced avalanche airbag packs, are partnering with Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) as the official airbag pack supplier for the mountain’s ski patrol.  Known for some of North America’s most challenging in and out-of-bounds terrain, JHMR’s ski patrol is among the most experienced and seasoned in avalanche prevention, safety and on-snow rescue.

“Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is thrilled to bring a strategic partnership with Mammut to fruition this winter,” stated JHMR Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Adam Sutner.  “With inherent mountain risks both inbounds and out-of-bounds in our lift accessible backcountry, safety of our employees and guests is always the first priority.  We are excited to work with Mammut to offer the best technology in airbags to our staff and guests.”

This season, each patroller will be outfitted with Mammut’s Pro Removable Airbag 3.0 pack, offering 35 or 45-liter backpack volume options equipped with the Removable Airbag System and loaded with features, including organization for avalanche safety essentials including shovel and probe.

Mammut is touting their 3.0 avalanche airbags as “the best choice for the worst case”, citing the 30% lighter weight and packing volume, improved carrying comfort and durability, flexibility to use the removable airbag with other compatible pack configurations, and trauma protection from their Protection series airbags. The new Ultralight Removable 3.0 is among the lightest airbag pack available to skiers and riders, weighing in at 4 pounds, 3 ounces fully equipped.

“Working with the caliber of patrollers at Jackson Hole highlights the level of trust that so many avalanche and snow safety experts put into Mammut’s avalanche safety systems,” said Gribbin Loring, marketing manager for Mammut North America. “We’re honored that our airbag packs will be working alongside some of the best and most committed avalanche professionals and ski patrollers out there, while also providing protection to everyday and occasional skiers and riders.”
