Backcountry snowboarding doesn’t get much more spectacular than a day spent splitboarding in Grand Teton National Park outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The grandeur of the peaks and the majestic prominence of the rideable lines makes any mid-winter day spent in the park a special adventure.

If you’ve dreamed of riding in the Tetons, but are looking for a safe introduction to this formidable range, we have news of a couple awesome guided opportunities.

EXUM Mountain Guides is offering several Splitboard and Snowboard Mountaineering courses in the Tetons this winter including courses instructed by Jones Ambassadors. AMGA splitboard guide Brendan Burns is leading both intro and advanced clinics and Jones women’s ambassador Iris Lazzereschi is leading two Women’s Intro to Splitboarding Clinics.

Splitboard Mountaineering Clinic, February 24-26, 2017

The Exum Splitboard Mountaineering Clinic was designed by AMGA guide Brendan Burns to help splitboarders get the skills they need to climb and ride in the high peaks. Skills covered include: gear selection, introduction to technical rope work, use of ice axe and crampons, steep snowboarding techniques, partner communication, terrain assessment and hazard evaluation.

Moran Camp, March 5-7th and 10-13th, 2017

Brendan also leads a base camp trip to the legendary Mt. Moran. On this course you will spend 3 nights in a custom built, porter supplied basecamp directly beneath one of the biggest backcountry lines in the US – the Skillet Glacier. Connect with Brendan and hear more about his courses and Teton adventures at

Women’s Intro To Splitboarding Camp, January 20-22 and March 10-12, 2017

The Women’s Intro to Splitboarding Camp is sure to be an unforgettable learning experience in a spectacular classroom. Led by Jones team rider Iris Lazzereschi, the course is tailored to the intermediate rider who wants to start exploring the backcountry. The focus of the course will be to teach basic splitboard skills and mountain travel techniques. You can expect three safe and fun filled days of instruction from one of the most radiant and talented female splitboarders around. Iris knows the Tetons well and is always thrilled to share the stoke for splitboarding and teach you what it takes to safely explore and ride in the wilderness.
