Griffin Post once said, if in ten years, all he’s done is win some competitions and film some segments, he’ll be pretty disappointed in himself.

Well, Griffin’s done that and some. He’s a two-time U.S. Extreme Freeskiing champion, appearing in Teton Gravity Research and Warren Miller films with impressive descents from Chile to the Arctic Circle. He’s also a major advocate for protecting the places we love to play. Griffin figures if he’s lucky enough to ski iconic ridgelines in our national parks (Grand Teton National Park is his backyard), he should be vocal about making sure these lands are available for future generations to discover. An accomplished writer, Griffin contributes to Powder, Freeskiing, and Skiing magazines, as well as ESPN. He admits to spending an unhealthy amount of time on Google Earth, planning expeditions and day-dreaming of the places he’s yet to explore. We can relate.
