Glory Bowl

Glory Bowl, the ever-popular backcountry ski descent on the southeastern face of Mount Glory, provides 2,000 vertical feet of adrenaline-pumping turns. Historically a catastrophic avalanche path, Glory Bowl has become a well-trodden ski route due to growing recreational avalanche awareness and careful avalanche control by the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WY-DOT). Despite these efforts, avalanches are still a common occurrence on Mount Glory and in the surrounding peaks, so please, “know before you go!”

Mount Glory rises above the valley floor to an elevation of 10,086 feet (3074 m.). Directly adjacent to Teton Pass, the high-altitude highway between Jackson, Wyoming and Teton Valley, Idaho, Mount Glory provides the most perfect easy-access travel to backcountry skiing and riding in the area. From the top of Teton Pass, a roughly 45-minute hike up a leg-burning, lung-searing boot pack takes you 1,655 feet in elevation to the top of Glory. From there, you experience breath-taking, 360-degree views of the Teton Range to the north and the Snake River Range to the south, and the valley floors to the east and west.

While Glory Bowl is certainly the most well-known (and oft-talked-about) descent from the top, there are plenty of other powder stashes awaiting your arrival. Grab your topo-map, talk to some locals, and send it—the Stagecoach Bar, located in Wilson, Wyoming, at the base of the Pass, is all ears.
