Ski pioneer Bill Briggs still teaching at 84

Legendary ski mountaineer Bill Briggs teaches weekly clinics for instructors in Jackson at age 84. The Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame inductee is best known for the first ski descent of the Grand Teton, and a 100-mile traverse of the Bugaboos, but his contributions to ski instruction may be his biggest legacy.
