Ski Mountaineering Clinic

Exum's 3-day Ski Mountaineering Clinic was designed for anyone who has ever looked up at the Tetons and wondered what it would be like to ski down them.

The Tetons are home to some of the most spectacular and accessible Ski Mountaineering terrain in North America.

This clinic is designed to give intermediate backcountry skiers the chance to progress to the next level, and take on a high peak. If you ski blues and blacks at your local resort, or ski in the backcountry, if you think you’re ready for steeper and more technical terrain, this clinic is for you.

You will spend 1 day on Snow King Mountain, also know as the “Town Hill” in Jackson. The accessibility and high concentration of expert terrain make this a perfect venue for steep skiing skills, introduction to technical rope work, or just refining your turns.

The skills you practice will then be put to the test for the next 2 days while we venture up in the high peaks of the Tetons. Exum Guides are comprised of American Mountain Guides Association trained guides, PSIA, instructors and some of the most accomplished ski mountaineers in the world. This is your chance to get coached by the best.

The list of topics and skills covered includes : Gear selection, knots, introduction to technical rope work, use of an ice axe, crampons, steep skiing technique, partner communication, terrain assessment and hazard evaluation. Participants should be comfortable skiing blue terrain and harder, and be able to skin up a minimum of 4,000 feet in a day. Come to this clinic fit and you will have more fun!

Please call the Exum office if you have questions, or to sign up.
