Become an Ambassador

Become an Ambassador

The Teton Backcountry Alliance Volunteer Backcountry Ambassador Program complements the on-going work of Jay Pistono and Mike Penterson,  BTNF’s full-time winter Teton Pass Ambassadors. With all six of last winter’s volunteer ambassadors returning, TBCA now has 10 people serving in the backcountry.  We are excited to have this strong team of community residents and backcountry enthusiasts to help promote TBCA’s mission of public safety, community, stewardship, and sustainable access. Look for them at the Teton Pass Summit, Coal Creek, Stateline, Philips Bench, and on the skin track, the slopes, and to tops of your favorite runs.
