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
(for our mountain yurts)
A “First-day Guide” is required if no one in your group has been to the yurt previously (not applicable for Teton Canyon Yurt rental). The guide will familiarize you with the route, yurt operations, ski terrain, and assessment of current snow and avalanche conditions ($285. fee). 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 eight participants. Group size is maximum 8 participants.
A wood stove provides warmth (firewood provided) and stainless steel boxes are used for melting snow for water on the wood stove. The kitchen is complete with a two burner propane cookstove (fuel provided), 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, hand sanitizer, paper towels, bleach, soap, scrubbies, 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. Each participant is required to sign an Acknowledgment of Risk waiver before trip departure.
