Bob Peters first visited Jackson Hole as a kid in 1961 during the classic family station-wagon marathon trip through the West. He’s never forgotten the view of this valley as they drove down from Teton Pass. His next visit was on a ski trip during sophomore year at Iowa State University in 1969. In the winter of 1974/75, Bob and his wife Ruthie spent the first of what has now been over 40 winters skiing at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. In the winter of 1979, Bob was hired as a backcountry alpine ski guide at the resort and spent the next 8 seasons taking clients out of bounds.
In 2002, Bob and Ruthie moved to the Valley full time and Bob became a partner in the North 40 Realty real estate brokerage. Since that time, he’s also been a part-time adult private ski instructor at JHMR. Bob loves skiing so much that he did a streak of skiing at least once a month for 200 consecutive months, a string that ended in the summer of 2014 when he had both knees replaced. Coincidence? We’ll probably never know. In addition to serving as board member and Open Space Council chair at the Land Trust, Bob is active in the community and serves on the boards of the Community Resource Center of Jackson Hole, Friends of Fish Creek, and the Snake River Fund.
