Backcountry Basecamp

BACKCOUNTRY BASECAMP IS BACK FOR ANOTHER WINTER!

The eighth-annual Backcountry BASECAMP Tour is heading to Grand Targhee! Together with Scott Sports, Nokian Tyres and Mazda, Backcountry Magazine brings the beta published in every issue to resorts all across the U.S. From Tahoe to the Tetons, the Pacific Northwest to the Northeast, Backcountry Magazine joins local guides, forecasters and avalanche instructors for a weekend-long pop-up festival featuring gear demos, avalanche education, local forecasting and a huge raffle benefitting a local non-profit.

Backcountry BASECAMP makes its first-ever visit to Grand Targhee on January 29th and 30th. Join us at the base area between the Trap Bar deck and the Teewinot Lodge for our signature free demos and educational experiences all day Saturday and Sunday. Throughout the weekend, we will be joined by our friends from Teton County Idaho Search and Rescue to discuss the state of the local snowpack in the surrounding mountains and general backcountry safety. Join one of our free guided backcountry tours each day led by the legendary guides from Yostmark Backcountry Tours. Local guide and Backcountry Magazine managing editor Betsy Manero will be on hand both days offering free educational clinics to freshen up your beacon skills and teach you about basic backcountry safety and etiquette. At 4:30 p.m. on Saturday join us at The Trap Bar and Grill for live music and a giant raffle with 100 percent of the profits going to Teton County Idaho Search and Rescue.
