Bobby Thomson moved to Jackson in the Fall of 2007 with his college roommate. He had to Google where and what Jackson Hole was after he committed to move here. He had skied maybe eight days total in his life at Wintergreen in Virginia and was that southern kid on straight skis he bought at a thrift store and ski boots three sizes too big. Bobby has done almost everything to stay in Jackson from bagging groceries, being a bell hop, a cashier, Rookie of the Year ski instructor, in group sales for JHMR, and now he owns his own business-Quiznos Sub. He loves being his own boss and having the flexibility to get involved with local organizations.
While Jackson was new for Bobby in 2007, mountain life was not. Growing up, he spent fourteen summers in the blue ridge mountains of Virginia where he gained a great appreciation for open space and the beauty of mother nature. He cherishes the work JHLT is doing to continue to provide open space for future generations.
On his down time, Bobby love to ski as much as possible, hike, and ride horses on the many trails within and surrounding Jackson Hole- many of which have views that will never change thanks to the work of the Land Trust.
