Backcountry Safety

Know before you go

Before you venture into the backcountry with one of our expert guides, you must recognize the risk involved. While we neither encourage nor discourage backcountry travel, we do advocate continual education and practice of safe backcountry skills. This video is merely a primer for those interested in learning more about backcountry safety; it is not a substitute for thorough education, preparation and awareness. Your safety – and the safety of others – depends on knowledge and preparation.

Produced by Storm Show Studios in collaboration with Marmot, Bridger Teton National Forest, Teton County Search and Rescue, and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
