Ski Mountaineering

7,000 vertical feet of eminently accessible terrain make the Tetons a sought-after area for ski-mountaineering, offering terrain to challenge even the best ski mountaineers.

Whether you are building up to something bigger, like skiing the Grand, or simply looking for an amazing mountain adventure, skiing one of the Teton’s spectacular summits is a truly rewarding experience. Skiing any of the following peaks provides a long, challenging, and unforgettable day.

Some One-Day Options

BUCK MOUNTAIN: A spectacular climb and descent off one of the Teton’s most accessible summits.  Vertical ascent/descent – 5,000 ft.

NEZ PERCE: Thrilling couloir skiing down either the Sliver Couloir to the east or the Hourglass Couloir to the north. Vertical ascent/descent – 3,500 to 4,000 ft.

DISAPPOINTMENT PEAK: Rarely skied from its wind-blown summit, we follow the switchbacks up to Amphitheater and Surprise Lakes to approach. From there you can climb up the spectacular Spoon Couloir and ski back down, or from the lakes, numerous descent options include steep, north-facing couloirs, open glades, and steep tree skiing. Vertical ascent/descent – 3,200 to 4,000 ft.

Our Most Popular Multi-Day Option

MOUNT MORAN, SKILLET GLACIER: One of the proudest and most elegant lines in the range, the Skillet can be at its best in mid-winter, but typically holds enough snow to ski well into summer. Vertical ascent/descent – almost 6,000 ft.
