For Immediate Release
From Jack Dunn, BMSA Managing Director

The new terrain named after Wyoming ski pioneer

The management of Brokeback Mountain Ski Area is pleased to announce the naming of our new terrain which will be accessible via a triple chair lift as early as 2007/2008 ski season. The jury had a difficult but exciting task to select one name out of more than fifty submissions.

Some of the runner-ups for the name were:

Brown Canyon Bowl
Jack's Behind
Maneater Canyon

The jury has selected Jack's Bowl but immediately changed the name to Jack's Bowls because the new area consists of two cascading bowls.

The name reflects Wyoming ski tradition embodied in the name of BMSA co-founder Jack Clark who dedicated his career to preserving the "best kept secret" of Brokeback Mountain Ski Area
