The Power of Connection

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

Brené Brown - Author and Researcher

Please join us for our fourth annual Curvejump Jackson Hole event. March 7th-10th, 2019.  

Against the awe-inspiring backdrop of Wyoming’s Grand Tetons, our flagship Curvejump event brings together a truly remarkable group of independent thinkers, creative rebels and all manner of instigators pushing the envelope at the forefront of technology, design, art, athletics and media.

The theme of this year’s Curvejump event is connection.

Connection is something each and every one of us needs to perform at our best. Yet we rarely make enough time for it, especially our connections to nature, to people, and to ideas that matter.

This inspired us to design a Curvejump experience that’s first and foremost about creating space for building new and real connections.

Our core belief is that when great people come together from across a spectrum of art, business, athletics and science, great things become possible. It just takes the right connection.

Here’s what you can expect from Curvejump JH 2019:

  • Unrushed time to explore Jackson Hole with local athletes and guides who know the region and the terrain. Whether your thing is snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing, yoga or snowmobiling to a remote hot spring, we got you covered.

  • One thought provoking and inspirational big idea session in the late afternoon, grounded in actionability, designed around our key theme of connection.  

  • Incredible meals and experiences that tap into Jackson’s super creative local community of chefs, makers, musicians and artisans.

And… This year we’re introducing a pre-Curvejump day of snowcat skiing/snowboarding at Grand Targhee resort in Alta, Wyoming for those of you who can’t get enough powder.
