Location, Location, Location!
Teton Canyon Yurt is located in the summer use campground in the most scenic and spectacular canyon on the western slope of the Tetons. Opportunities to explore a riparian environment and see wintering wildlife abound. Or explore the area on backcountry skis seeking deep powder turns–this yurt has it all!
The yurt is accessed via a four-mile, mostly flat, groomed Nordic track that is ideal for cross-country skiing, skate skiing, and snowshoeing. Ski from the yurt into Grand Teton National Park or climb Table Mountain for amazing views of the Grand Tetons!
The Teton Canyon Yurt is for winter use only. Dates of operation are December 20 through early April. The yurt is not available in the summer.
Friends and family members, both young and old, will enjoy the scenic vistas and snowy woodlands along the track to our Teton Canyon Yurt. Amazingly beautiful are the only words to describe this area!!
The yurt sleeps 4-6 people. It is a one room structure that includes a kitchen zone and a sleeping zone. There is a table, chairs and bench. Hangars and racks provide areas to dry wet clothing.
Two bunk beds sleep doubles on the bottom bunk and singles on the top. Cots sleep an additional two people. Additional fees apply for more than 6 persons in the yurt. There is a pellet stove for heat, which allows the yurt to stay warm and comfortable all night, lights, and a two-burner propane stove for cooking. Snow is melted for water. An outhouse is nearby.
Household basics such as toilet paper, paper towels, and fuel for cooking, lighting, and heating are provided. Salt, pepper, soap, bleach, scrubbies and coffee filters are also provided. Kitchenware including cooking and eating utensils, cups, bowls, pots, pans, griddles, cutting boards, and more, are also provided.
Overnight renters need to provide their own sleeping bags, food, drink, first aid and emergency supplies, and maps. All participants will need to sign an Acknowledgement of Risk waiver before trip departure.
Step out your door and onto a freshly groomed cross-country ski track! The yurt is located at 6,500′ and is less than one mile from the Jedediah Smith Wilderness boundary adjacent to Grand Teton National Park. Backcountry skiers equipped with avalanche safety gear along with the skills and training to safely travel in avalanche terrain, will find abundant powder skiing opportunities above the yurt. This yurt sits at a lower elevation than our other yurts so will require more hiking time to access powder skiing. Ice climbing and rock climbing opportunities are available nearby.
The Teton Canyon Yurt can be accessed via snowmachine, however due to the popularity of this trailhead, we request that folks consider human power to access and enjoy the yurt.
$250/night plus tax and fees. Weekend rentals are Friday and Saturday and are always rented as a two-night package.
