Testimonials

We at JHMG enjoy our clients’ diversity and energy. Everyone on a climb has something to contribute, each bringing a unique blend of skills and backgrounds that enhance the experience of the entire group.

We look forward to welcoming back past clients for another adventure, and appreciate getting to know new faces each year.


I just wanted to let you know what an inspired and safe experience your guide, Patrick McDermott, provided for our group. In our group, we had 2 skiers who had never been out skiing in the backcountry. One of them hadn’t even skied in over 6 years. Patrick knew exactly how to handle the more challenging moments of the climb up and provided encouragement for all of us. His demeanor couldn’t have been better and his instincts and knowledge of the park were impeccable. The beauty and serenity of climbing and skiing in Teton National Park is truly a one of a kind experience and left all of us wanting more. I cannot recommend Jackson Hole Mountain Guides more and encourage everyone to take advantage of this exceptional experience. It was a gift for us all and did wonders for the soul.

Very professional! Excellent instructors with a wealth of knowledge and most importantly, they know how to facilitate growth of one’s mountain sense.

Words cannot convey the experience of a winter day out with a JHMG guide taking you on a safe tour of the Tetons. Slow and steady up for a few hours rewards you with an exquisite view of the Tetons in all their majesty. Then, instead of an exhausting, bone-jarring hike back down, take the skins off your skis and ride down in powder that is almost impossible to find in a ski resort. Even a week after the last snowfall, you will still find good snow to ride down on. Even if it’s not a clear and sunny day, it’s a wonderful day out and you’ll want to keep going back until you are rewarded with those magnificent views. If the price for a ride on the Virgin Galactic rocket is $200,000, I’d say a day in the Tetons with a JHMG guide is the most undervalued ticket you can buy!

Knowledgable instructors and in a setting that inspires.  I learned a lot during my course and look forward to putting my new knowledge to use exploring on snow in the Tetons and beyond.

This is our third trip here to backcountry ski.  We love our guide and always request him.  The experience each year is always different and amazing.  This is the perfect escape for a few executives and we are already planning next year’s trip.

Amazing Back Country Ski day with JHMG. Our Guide knew exactly where to find the best pow! I wouldn’t hesitate to book again.

Whenever you are in Las Vegas and got a day without any arrangements go arrange for a day in Red Rocks with JHMG’s. I have done this twice during business trips and it has been a great experience every time. Competent guides have made these my best days in Las Vegas.

Thank you for taking us on the climb. It was such a blast! Being on the Grand was really neat and I hope to do more climbs like it. Thanks for teaching me many things!
