Facets: Voices of the Mountain Life

May 13 2022 • 22 mins

At first glance, Wyoming life may seem all about powder and pitches, guns and gear. It’s home to North America’s apex predators, some of the steepest mountains in the Rockies and lots of opportunities for an adrenaline rush. So, it may come as little surprise that Wyoming’s male-to-female ratio is the second-highest in the U.S., after only Alaska. But Wyoming’s women have been breaking boundaries ever since the state was the first to grant women the right to vote in 1869. In this episode, KHOL’s Emily Cohen speaks to contemporary pioneering women, including the first woman on the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort ski patrol and Wyoming's first Native American woman to run for national office about how they’ve pushed boundaries in this landscape of extremes.

This episode was made in collaboration with Stio, stewards of the mountain life. It was reported and produced by Emily Cohen. KHOL's Kyle Mackie and Will Walkey provided editorial and production support. Music scoring by Sheena and Jacob Ferguson. Creative direction and executive production support provided by Stio’s Liz Barrett and Jessie Van der Linden. Facets logo design by Kika MacFarlane.
