Clients and guides will be climbing the West in Salewa Footwear


Boulder, Colorado, April 2012 -Salewa N.A., the brand that revolutionized the approach shoe with 3F technology and a 100% blister free guarantee, recently announced a new partnership with Jackson Hole Mountain Guides. (JHMG) is celebrating 44 years of mountain guiding service, specializing in guided climbs, climbing instruction, and backcountry skiing throughout the American West. Effective immediately, Salewa North America will serve as JHMG's exclusive approach footwear sponsor.


“When we launched our Tech and Alpine Approach products, the target audience were the core mountain guides and athletes,” said Jim Lamancusa, Director of Sales and Marketing for Salewa North America. “We know that JHMG is the industry's premier guiding operation for instruction AND leadership. We are thrilled to join forces to provide the guides and clients with our wide range of technical footwear”. Additionally, we are looking forward to expanding this partnership into new product lines with continued product feedback from the field”.


Jackson Hole Mountain Guides has rich history in Jackson Hole. During the winter 1967, Barry Corbet, a well-known guide and skier, reached an agreement with Teton Village developers to operate a climbing school at the resort. He acquired a Forest Service permit for activities around the ski area, a climbing concession from Grand Teton National Park and hired long-time climbing ranger Pete Sinclair as chief guide. Today, JHMG guides hundreds of people year-round in the mountain ranges of Wyoming and Montana, in the canyons and on the towers of Utah, on Cody's South Fork ice falls, and on the cliffs and crags of Boulder, CO, Red Rock, NV and City of Rocks, Idaho.


Jackson Hole Mountain Guides plan to outfit both their guide staff and clients with an array of Salewa footwear. For more information on the JHMG their programs, please go to http://www.jhmg.com
