Ski Bum Music Fest Saturday in Jackson

The 15th annual Ski Bum Music Fest is 9 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 29, at the Stagecoach in Jackson, featuring The Ski Bum Music Fest Jazz Explosion, Chanman Roots Band and The Outfit. $10. 733-4407.

It’s a classic Jackson Hole event that has deep roots and gives back to the ski community from which it was born – proceeds from the Ski Bum Music Festival benefit Bridger Teton Avalanche Center and Brent Newton Foundation. Fifteen years after its inception, founder Peter “Chanman” Chandler talks with JH Weekly about his positive take on being a ski bum and how the fest came to be.
