Steve Romeo died in an avalanche in March with friend Chris Onufer.
Steve Romeo lived to ski. He loved the mountains. And boy, did he love his gear that allowed him to ski, run and fish the Tetons.
The late ski mountaineer accumulated a Matterhorn’s worth of gear while working as assistant manager at Skinny Skis and running the satellite shop in Moose each summer. And in recent years, thanks to his blog, Teton AT, he received all sorts of free products for testing and promotion.
To honor his memory, friends and family are selling much of Romeo’s gear. The sale will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday (and Sunday, if any remains) at 3025 Aster Lane, just north of The Aspens and C–V Ranch on Highway 390.
Skis, boots, poles, bindings, clothing, packs, ice axes, helmets, tents and sleeping bags will be available. There also will be waders and fishing gear, other climbing accessories and a wide assortment of running shoes.
Proceeds will benefit the Steve Romeo Memorial Fund, which his family hopes to use for youth skiing/mountaineering scholarships or conservation.
Rando Steve would want us all well equipped. This way, we can carry his spirit into the mountains with us on our next adventure.
