Although we didn't use the guiding service, we stayed in the Baldy Knoll yurt for 3 days/2 nights in February 2017. Loved the yurt, loved the skiing and had a great time. I was over visiting from Scotland, and had the benefit of local friends to help find the best skiing. Really hard to find fault with anything about the... More

Teton Backcountry Guides is a small-owner operated operation that provides guided trips in to the backcountry Tetons. My favorite is their 5 days in to their yurts. I've been going with them for 9 years and it has always been great skiing (even in years when the resort skiing was lousy!), great guiding to fresh tracks every run, and fabulous... More

Hands down the best backcountry skiing experience you could have around Jackson and Teton Valley!!! We recently did a multi-day trip to the Baldy Knoll yurt. Jeff and Kate, our two guides, were awesome! They were very experienced, knew the terrain well, and knew exactly where there was going to be good snow. They also were highly safety conscious. They...

I hadn't done any ski touring before this trip so had no idea what to expect. We hired the Commissary ridge yurt after a couple of weeks skiing inbounds at Jackson Hole. We were met by Jeff, our guide on the first day. Took a nice leisurely track up to the yurt, which was great to get used to the... More

Thanks so much Hugh. We appreciate your taking the time to let us know you had a great trip. Your visit coincided with some of the best snow of the winter so it was great you had a chance to experience the dry blower powder that we are known for here in Wyoming. We are so happy to know you... More

We stayed at the Baldy Knoll Yurt for 3 days and two nights with Jeff and Nick, both really cool guys. They taught us a lot about skinning and transitioning and how to be more efficient in the back country. On top of that, we got to ski some great lines with really good snow, which we were shocked about... More

I could not recommend Teton Backcountry Guides more highly. Jeff and Diane were very helpful and professional in the run up to our trip helping us to get organised and Paul was a fantastic guide on the day. Teton Backcountry doesn't have the most sophisticated website and is a lower price point than many of the other backcountry operators in... More

Jeff and Matt were our guides for the baldy knoll yurt trip last week. Larry and I have skied all over NA including Alaska and these guys were two of the best we have ever experienced. The terrain is fantastic! We had bluebird skies all week and Jeff and Matt had no trouble finding incredible powder everyday. Our favourite runs... More

We had a fantastic time touring around Teton Pass. Paul and Matt were excellent - very professional, found us some good snow despite rain in town, and best uphill skin track ever. A nice bonus was Paul taking ski pictures the entire day; we had a dropbox full of pictures by 5 pm that night. Great way to experience the... More

My husband and I went on the 3 day Baldy Knoll trip Feb 3-5. When we booked it, we said it was once in a lifetime...after doing the trip now we are saying we would love to make this once per year!

We have been using the Teton Backcountry Guides yurts for ~9 yrs now. I have mixed feelings about writing a review because these huts are the best kept secret on the west side of the Tetons. If your looking for overnight backcountry skiing, there is nothing better. Each hut has a wide range of terrain and we have never been... More
