Wremember Wray Landon

[ 0 ] February 28, 2010 |

Last Sunday local skier, Wray Landon, passed away after being swept off of a cliff on the South Teton by an avalanche . Wray, also known by friends and family as Big Wray, Big W, two a day Wray, everyday Wray, and even all day everyday Wray. He got some of these nicknames because he was a “giant” in the mountains. At six and a half feet tall, he would sometimes run to the summit of the Grand Teton as an evening sunset run, ski up to three Mount Taylor Laps a day, and push the physical limits of anyone that stood in his path. As an amazing athlete and even more amazing person, Wray will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and the Jackson Hole Community.

Wray was all smiles all day in the mountains.

Wray also played a strong role with the Teton Land Trust while living in Teton Valley. Honoring the wishes of Wray’s family, the Teton Regional Land Trust has started a “Wray Landon Legacy Fund”. Gifts made to this fund will go towards furthering the great work Wray did with the Land Trust.
