My 2 friends and I went backcountry skiing / skinning for the first time off the Teton pass with Teton Backcountry Guides (formally Rendezvous Backcontry Tours). We were a bit apprehensive but Diane advised us on what to expect, the equipment necessary and level of experience needed. The night before it snowed about 8 inches and continued to snow hard all day, but without high winds. The powder was unbelievable and untracked. Our guide Tony took us to terrain that suited our skill levels and was safe. He was a great guide and we certainly appreciated him breaking trail for the skinning back up the mountain. We also got a primer into avalanche preparedness and response. I would call the trip touring the backcountry. Skinning up and around the trees with spectacular vistas was tranquil and beautiful. The skiing down was a scream. Great powder turns got us all hooked. This was a fantastic experience that we will always remember fondly and will do again.

My wife and I have visited the Teton Valley several times and have always taken a self guided dayhike on one of the many scenic trails in the area. Living in a large city with 9 to 5 desk jobs we don't exactly push ourselves on these hikes into the wilderness.

On our recent trip to the area we decided to take a guided hike offered by Rendevous Backcountry Tours. During the planning phase of the hike, our guide quizzed us on our physical condition and what we wanted to see on our hike. Based upon our answers, she recommended a hike that began on a trailhead at 7100 feet in elevation and took us all the way up to a ridge at 9600 feet in elevation.

We had an amazing time! The view was spectacular. And, we never would have discovered this view on our own. We didn't know the trail and view existed and we wouldn't have pushed as far into the wilderness without our expert guide leading us.

If you're looking for a grand adventure into the Teton backcountry, contact Rendevous Backcountry Tours.
