Joe Stone

Adaptive MTB Skills, Advocacy

Joe Stone has been playing the wheelchair game for about 11 years after sustaining a spinal cord injury at the c7 level while speed flying in Montana. He has been very passionate about getting back to the outdoors both for himself and to open inclusive outdoor opportunities for people with disabilities. In 2013, Joe partnered with Teton Adaptive and TVTAP to help make the Wydaho Rendezvous accessible to adaptive mountain biking. Through collaboration, the obstacles that came up have been tackled, turning this event into a well-oiled machine that welcomes everyone. The biproduct of this work has been the acknowledgement that inclusion creates a stronger community, which is a value that Joe strongly holds onto. Fast forward eight years, Joe is now the Director of Mission at Teton Adaptive and the Wydaho Rendezvous has turned into the largest adaptive mountain bike gathering in the world. Joe has been teaching adaptive mountain bike lessons for both downhill and cross country and he is very dedicated to helping individuals build their confidence, expand their skills, and making sure people are smiling at the end of the day.

Julie Ellison

Adventure Photography

Through authentic writing, photography, and video, Julie’s storytelling approach doesn’t involve any extra lights, posing, or sugar-coating reality for Instagram. Instead, she likes to be a fly on the wall with her camera and a notebook, capturing candid moments of real people doing exactly what they would be doing if she weren’t there. Her favorite subjects are the outdoors, bold women, travel, the American West, and anything that’s awesome. She writes magazine features, creates documentary photo essays, produces and shoots films, and constantly rethinks how stories are told. Whether it’s for a big brand or a small personal project, her goal is to create engaging content that informs, entertains, and inspires. She was a Sony Alpha Female, she was the first female Editor in Chief of Climbing magazine, and she was once named one of the most talented people in the outdoor industry. She and her pit bull Lizzie lived in a van for several years before settling in southeast Idaho at the base of the Tetons, meeting her partner, and getting a second dog named Alfie. She thrives when she’s chasing a buck hunter 10 miles in the backcountry, interviewing captivating subjects, empowering others to tell their stories, shooting climbers on a big wall 1,500 feet off the ground, or reveling in the chaos of a messy artist’s workshop.
