We have a winner: Stuart correctly identified the photo as Bill Briggs, first man to ski the Grand Teton and longtime backcountry skiing pioneer. The contest shot (and bonus one below) were taken during the famed Bugaboos high ski traverse he did with Barry Corbet, Roberts French and Sterling Neal in 1959.
In honor of Bill, how about I publish the classic hero shot of him you’ve all probably seen before?

Hint’s in the title boys and girls. Prize is a Backcountry Access backpack shipped to your door. Name the person. First comment with correct answer wins. If we have no correct answer after a few hours, I’ll post hints. I’ve also got more obvious shots of this guy so we can get those up as well if necessary. Get on it!
