When it comes to all-time mountain men, three-time Olympian Tommy Moe has to be part of the conversation. The Montana native of Norwegian heritage refined his skiing skills in Alaska and made the U.S. Ski Team at age sixteen. In 1994 in Lillehammer, Norway, Tommy became the first American male skier to win two medals (downhill gold, super-G silver) in one Olympics, delighting the home crowd and securing his spot as a skiing legend. After retiring in 1998, Tommy settled in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where he and his wife, Megan (U.S. Ski Team alum and Olympian), are raising their two daughters. Megan teaches fifth grade while Tommy reigns as big-mountain icon and ski ambassador. In summers the insatiable outdoorsman leads the popular Cast & Carve heli-skiing and fishing tours out of Tordrillo Mountain Lodge in Alaska, which he co-owns. Whether skiing, fishing, or running rivers, the mighty, mellow Moe inspires outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.

His fun-loving spirit even inspired this book, and in honor of Tommy’s long-running relationships with both Spyder and cold climates, we created this big, cozy blanket adorned with a spider.
