Mark Carter manages to mosey between different worlds as few can. Totally at ease flipping calves, riding horses and getting into the kind of deep stuff only true cowboys know. Come winter, Carter can flip tricks and trade tram laps at Jackson Hole with the best snowboarders in the business. From winning a stop at The North Face Masters big mountain series to hitting the podium at the heavy-hitting Natural Selection to appearing in some of the most memorable shred flicks out there, Carter’s put his brand on the sport and culture.
In the off-season, Mark is back on the family ranch nestled in the foothills of the Big Horn range where his family raises cattle. Mark and his brother have recently started selling beef from off the range direct to the customer. Carter Country Meats is a new endeavor, one that he is proud of and one that will certainly put smiles on faces. Nothing improves the taste of their beef than grilling it on a Pro 34, and there is no better way to unwind that cooking out on the ranch.

Mark's Favortie Recipes
Strapped for time, or looking to maximize space on your grill? Then a spatchcocked turkey is the way to go. Start by removing the turkey’s backbone, which will include cutting through the ribs. Then split the breast bone by pushing down with your hands to spread the turkey flat. Season generously then lay the bird spread out directly on the grill.

Tell us about your most memorable day on the mountain or ranch.
My most memorable day was when I was about 6 yrs old and my first time being bucked off my horse. I knew after that I loved to catch air and needed to learn how to wreck. I was humbled.
Who do you credit with helping you most in your career, any mentors or people you look up to?
I give most credit to my Ma and Pa for raising me up right, giving me one hell of a work ethic and making me tough.
For beginner ranchers or snowboarders what’s the one bit of advice you would give?
If you're gonna be dumb, you better be tough. Only you know your path.
