Project Description

Backcountry Skiing

Surrounded by the mountains, advanced skiers love that Turpin Meadow Ranch is at the center of the action for the ultimate backcountry skiing experience in Jackson Hole and the surrounding area. After a day out in the powder, retreat to your luxurious cabin and enjoy our cozy, historic lodge.

We do not provide guides for backcountry skiing and riding but offer the following suggestions and local resources:

  1. Weather Awareness: make sure to check out the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center’s twice-daily forecasts for avalanche advisories, incident reports, and more information necessary to stay safe.
  2. Learn or Brush Up on Avalanche Skills: the American Avalanche Institute in Jackson, WY offers classes teaching basic to advanced skills for avalanche country.
  3. Get a Guide: if you’re a backcountry beginner or unfamiliar with this particular area it isn’t a bad idea to use a guide. While we don’t offer guide service we suggest Teton Backcountry Guides.
