avalanche safety gear

avalanche safety in the mountains is imperative

There’s no way of completely eliminating the risk of avalanches when skiing or riding in the mountains. The best tool to keep you safe, however, is your knowledge of the terrain, snowpack, and rescue protocol.

Beyond knowledge, there’s equipment that no one should ski and ride the backcountry without. Teton Backcountry Rentals offers everything from the basic avy beacon, shovel, and probe to avalanche airbags and personal locator beacons.

Teton Backcountry Rentals offers a winter rental program from December 15th through April 15th. During the winter our store is open 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm daily, and gear reservations must be picked up the evening before your rental period.

When making an online reservation, please make sure to select exact 24 hour blocks, or you will be charged an extra day. However, we are happy to be flexible on your actual return times!
