A “First-Day Guide” is required if no one in your group has skied to the hut previously (not applicable for Teton Canyon). The guide will familiarize you with the route, hut operations and ski terrain, as well as assess current snow and avalanche conditions. Additional guides, porters and cooks are available for hire and additional equipment is available for rent. Please inquire.

The huts are outfitted with sleeping bunks and pads for eight people: two double bunks and four single bunks. We recommend six people in the yurt for the most comfortable experience, however the yurt is outfitted to accommodate eight. Sleeping bags at the hut may be rented (we’ll provide a clean liner).

yurt-inA wood stove provides warmth and stainless steel boxes are used for melting snow for water on the wood stove. The kitchen is complete with pans, skillets, griddles, cups, bowls, plates and utensils. A filter and cone aid in achieving the coffee buzz. Two propane lanterns provide light though you should bring headlamps. There is a private sheltered pit toilet. We provide toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, bleach, soap and scrubbies.

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.

Reservations & Cancellations

A deposit of 50% is required to confirm your reservation. If the deposit is not received within two weeks of the date you made your reservation, we will open up your dates for rental to other interested parties. The balance is due one month prior to trip departure. Deposits are non-refundable but may be used as a credit toward another trip within the calendar year (calendar year 2016-2017) less a $50 cancellation fee. If you cancel your hut reservation after January 1, 2017 and we can not re-rent your dates, your deposit will be forfeited. You are responsible to know the number of nights for which you have rented the yurt. No refunds for early departures, snow conditions, avalanche hazard, getting lost, or failure to locate the yurt. Cancellations that occur within 30 days of departure date are subject to forfeiture of all monetary transactions.

Note: TBG does not guarantee the weather, snow conditions or your group’s attendance, but we will strive to make the best of it all if unforeseen situations arise.
