The Howdy Pardners Ambassador Club was the hospitality arm of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. Dressed like the cowboys and cowgirls who settled this valley in the early 1900's, the Howdys roll out the red carpet at the Jackson Hole Airport during the winter months to greet visitors with mimosas, orange juice and hatpins. The club was founded in 1977 to spread good will and community spirit within the Jackson Hole area. Howdy Pardner volunteers are folks working in our area that donate their time to perform various activities.
We are easily recognized by our signature uniforms of jeans, red shirts or khaki shirts with the “Howdy Pardners” embroidered on the arm or collars, a vest and cowboy hats.
Jackson Hole Airport Welcome Prgram
The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is pleased to continue the tradition of welcoming visitors to the Jackson Hole Airport. Learn about the program from the Jackson Hole News&Guide. Julie Butler's story begins: "Where else in the world are weary airline travelers offered a big smile from a cowboy-coutured stranger bearing a free mimosa or a cup of unadulterated orange juice? Probably nowhere but Jackson Hole. Since 1977 the Howdy Pardners have been meeting arriving travelers at Jackson Hole Airport with a 'howdy' and a western-laced welcome."
