backpacking

Spend an incredible six days in the famous Wind River Range. This stunning section of back country will teach you the art of high mountain living away from the civilized world. Backpack through alpine meadows, camp next to crystal lakes and climb the passes and peaks of this pristine wilderness. Fish for your dinner in rivers filled with cutthroat trout, and cook your meals as the sun sets.

rock climbing

The granite spires of the Tetons will be your orientation for learning the skills you need to summit The Grand. Exum Mountain Guides will teach you the basics of rock climbing, belaying, and multi-pitch climbing, and then you’ll get your hands on the granite. In teams you’ll climb the classic monolith, gathering strength and confidence for the summit bid ahead.

mountaineering

13,776 feet to go, and with the skills you’ve acquired with Exum Mountain guides, you’ll be ready for this epic two day journey. Make your first push climbing to Garnet Canyon and sleep a few hours in a mountain hut adjusting to altitude. Then, rise before the sun and watch the world turn from the exposed granite slopes of The Grand as you summit. Gaze upon a spectacular 360 view of the Tetons.

white water rafting

Celebrate all your gravity defying work with a refreshing run on the scenic Snake River. Cruise this classic waterway, marveling at the mountains as you move through them. Learn to paddle as a team, navigating fast rapids and exciting wave trains. Soak up the sun filled swimming holes of the Snake.
