We have the only backcountry hut system in the Tetons and offer do-it-yourself yurt rentals to experienced parties who are proficient in route-finding, avalanche awareness, first aid, bivouac, and evacuation skills.
Yurt Rental Details
A “First-day Guide” is required if no one in your group has skied to the yurt previously (not applicable for Teton Canyon). The guide will familiarize you with the route, yurt operations, and ski terrain, as well as assess current snow and avalanche conditions. Additional guides, services, porters, and equipment are also available.
Our yurts are outfitted with sleeping bunks and pads for eight people: two double bunks and four single bunks. We recommend six people for the most comfortable experience, however the yurt will accommodate 8 participants.
A wood stove provide warmth and stainless steel boxes are used for melting snow for water on the wood stove. The kitchen is complete with pots and pans, a cast iron dutch oven, griddles, cups, bowls, plates, cutting boards, and utensils. A filter and cone aid in achieving the coffee buzz. Two propane lanterns provide light though you should bring headlamps for evening adventures and travel to our private sheltered pit toilet. We provide toilet paper, paper towels, bleach, soap, scrubbies and hand sanitizer, salt and pepper, and coffee filters.
Everyone in your party should be in good health and physical condition. Backcountry skiing is potentially hazardous and by renting our huts you acknowledge these risks and signify that each party member is prepared to endure the rigors of the winter environment.
