Splitboard Camping

Many splitboard objectives require long approaches, and depending on the length sometimes the best option is to camp along the way. Camping in the mountains in the winter demands a unique skill set and if done right it can be quite an enjoyable experience.

This year we are excited to partner with Exum Mountain Guides and offer a winter camping skills course. The objective of this course is to teach you how to safely and comfortably camp in the mountains while splitboarding in the heart of the Tetons. Our splitboard guides have been winter camping in the Tetons and many other mountain ranges for years. Join us for this camp and learn how to plan, pack, camp and stay comfortable, dry and well fed in the mountains.

This three day, two night course includes a planning and packing session before we head into Grand Teton National Park, where we will tent camp and have access to some incredible splitboarding. Our guides will share tips and secrets to make camp life dry, comfortable, and very enjoyable. Our guides will then lead you to splitboard the iconic lines of the Tetons from our basecamp.

3 Day Camp - Custom dates (call)

Our Introduction to Splitboarding Camp puts you in a group with one of Exum Mountain Guides professional splitboard guides, who will teach you the techniques specific to split boarding required to efficiently travel in the backcountry.  On day one your guide will teach you about proper terrain selection, avalanche awareness, transitioning from snowboard mode to uphill ski mode, and efficient travel techniques. All this is done touring near Teton Pass in the Mail Cabin Creek and Mt. Oliver areas which allows us to make the day any length we need to familiarize you with your gear, while riding some “fantastic” powder.   These areas have easy and moderate approaches to numerous open bowls and glades.  The next two days will be spent in Grand Teton National Park. Backcountry splitboarding in the Park is an experience every splitboarder should have. The riding is world class and no place in the valley offers better views of this magnificent mountain range. Long approaches and huge vertical runs make riding in the park a full day trip.

After our three day camp riders should have the newly acquired skills to travel efficiently in the backcountry on a splitboard.
