Meeting Time & Place

We will meet in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for an orientation at 5 p.m. the day before the trip starts at a predetermined hotel. We’ll give you a ride to the meeting point from your hotel if needed.

The orientation includes introductions, a briefing on the trip itinerary, a checking of personal gear, and other information on the trip.

Important note: Please bring all gear you plan on taking into the backcountry to this meeting.


Transportation To & From The Trailhead

We will pick you up at your hotel room in Jackson Hole at 7 a.m. on the first day of the trip, and provide transportation back to your room in Jackson on the last day of the trip..


Storage of Personal Items & Vehicles

The most secure option for your luggage will be to store it with the hotel you’ll be using before and after the trip. If this is not an option please let us know and we’ll see what we can do.


Pre & Post-Trip Lodging

Pre and post-trip lodging is your responsibility. We recommend the below-listed accommodations while in town. Staying in downtown Jackson is an enjoyable experience with fine dining and a diversity of great food, shopping, a nightly town square “shootout” (a mock shootout by actors in western costume), a rodeo at least two nights a week, and fresh mountain air. Make your reservations early as Jackson is a tourist community and rooms book early.
