OIA Member Steve Romeo Killed in Avalanche

Outdoor Industry Association® (OIA) was saddened to learn of the untimely passing of Steve Romeo and his skiing companion, Chris Onufer, after the two were caught in a backcountry avalanche last Wednesday, March 7. Romeo worked as a gear technician and salesman for OIA member Skinny Skis, and was also founder of TetonAT, an immensely popular blog dedicated to backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering in Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park.

Timmy Dow at MomentumMedia, a fellow OIA member, remembered Romeo as “a guy who brought light and energy to a room.” We send our condolences to Romeo and Onufer’s families.
