In a recent edition of 57hours Adventure Talks series, we learn what makes the Tetons renowned for backcountry skiing from local guides Rebecca Yaguda and Betsy Manero. Let these professional ski guides take you on an adventure through this incredible area for adventurers — covering everything from the history of backcountry skiing in the Tetons to its modern heyday. Rebecca and Betsy also talk about leading their all-women deep powder camp in Grand Teton National Park, and go over what makes the Tetons a great place to build community while leveling up your backcountry skiing skills.

One of the most remarkable aspects of the Tetons is that these iconic mountains hold something for everyone. Their reputation for challenging and steep lines may proceed them, but this Wyoming ski hub has terrain that emcompasses everything from mellow touring to fun tree skiing, ridgeline traverses and grand couloirs, made all the more appealing by easy backcountry access.

When you combine the local conditions and the breadth of areas for ski touring — from Wyoming Range, Palisades, Teton Pass, Grand Teton National Park, Big Holes, Togwotee Pass and more — with the character of the ski runs, it’s an equation that makes for epic backcountry powder days. Betsy and Rebecca share their wealth of knowledge on the area and give you the tools you need to seek out the best spots for yourself.

If you want to discover what draws skiers from all over the world to this incredible location or hear more about what you’ll gain from a deep powder camp, this 57hours Adventure Talk is for you!
