Wyoming: Togwotee Pass
Togwotee Pass (pronounced: toe-go-tee) lies at 9,658 feet on the continental divide in the Wind River Mountains. Heavy snowfall makes it a top destination for learning backcountry skiing and winter camping. Transport your gear on sleds and build a snow shelter. After a refreshing night’s sleep, wake up and make fresh tracks down your own private “ski hill”. This challenging and unique environment will foster community, interdependence and playfulness.
