Patagonia will no longer sell its products at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort after one of the hotel’s owners co-hosted a fundraiser for the House Freedom Fund featuring Mark Meadows, Marjorie Taylor Greene and other Trump-supporting Republicans.
The event featured appearances by Greene, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, the Washington Post reports. Corley Kenna, Patagonia’s head of policy and communications, confirmed to Daily Mail that the company officially cut ties with the ski resort Tuesday. It is still sorting existing inventory, but has canceled upcoming orders to the three stores in the resort.
“Those that know us in Jackson Hole are aware that we make business decisions and build relationships in alignment with our values and advocacy efforts,” a Patagonia spokesperson told Axios. “We join with the local community that is using its voice in protest. We will continue to use our business to advocate for policies to protect our planet, support thriving communities and a strong democracy.”
Patagonia will reconsider its partnership with the popular ski resort when it sees ‘a demonstrated commitment to a healthy planet and healthy communities from the owners of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort,’ Kenna confirmed.
She explained, ‘Those that know us in Jackson Hole are aware that we make business decisions and build relationships in alignment with our values and advocacy efforts.’ The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is the company’s largest retailer in the popular ski town. The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort have not commented on the matter at this stage.
