Description

Situated at approximately 10,338 ft above sea level, Hurricane Pass can be accessed from the south by way of the Teton Crest Trail or from the north via the South Fork Cascade Canyon. Schoolroom Glacier is 100 yards from the pass and has many of the textbook details of a glacier. These include well defined terminal and lateral moraines, crevasses, a proglacial lake and related features which led to the naming schoolroom.

Views of the west slopes of several of the highest Teton Range peaks as well as Alaska Basin and Battleship Mountain in Caribou-Targhee National Forest are on offer from the pass.
