Be the Best, not the biggest.

Off-Grid Experiences was born when a team of 12 industry professionals saw the opportunity to create something better. After many (many) years of working together in Jackson Hole and the surrounding area in the guiding industry, Dave Knaus (our founder) decided it was time to get the dream team back together. Our goal is to provide Jackson Hole, and it's visitors, with unforgettable experiences in the outdoors. Our team truly is family, and in exploring with us, you'll feel it.


we love jackson hole.

Living in Jackson and our team's deep appreciation for the wild places that make it so special is what motivates us to share it with you. Our combined skillsets, passions and shared experiences in the outdoors is what makes experiencing Jackson Hole with Off-Grid special.

Dave Knaus

Dave was born and raised in Saginaw, MI, where his love for snowmobiles first developed. In February 2006, David and a few friends embarked on a four-day snowmobile adventure in Jackson Hole, WY, and that experience changed his life forever. The same year, he packed up and moved to Jackson Hole to start his journey with OFF_GRID Experiences. Now in his 16th year in Jackson Hole, David feels truly blessed to have turned his passion into his job.

Allison Warren

Allison is originally from South Carolina, but after a few trips out West, moved to the area permanently after graduating college. Her love of the imposing mountains, wide open spaces, and cool dry air has made her incapable of calling any other place home. She has been working (and playing) in the snowmobile and tourism industry here in Jackson for the last two decades. When not working, Allison enjoys floating the river in her drift boat, water skiing on Palisades Lake, and heading for the coast during off-season months. At Off Grid, Allison is an integral part of making sure the business runs smoothly from behind the scenes and loves when all of the pieces come together for the best customer experience on all levels!

Taylor Frye

Taylor, our management team member, originally hails from Alabama. She came to Wyoming for an internship in Hospitality Management and fell in love with the Teton Mountain Range, which she had the pleasure of having in her "backyard" for a summer. After graduating in 2012, she immediately moved back to Jackson Hole that same winter. Taylor has worked with her current management team for over 10 years, and needless to say, they work great together! Taylor and her husband are now raising two crazy toddler boys in Bozeman, MT, but Jackson Hole will always be her second home. She loves talking to people about Jackson and ensuring that they have a fantastic experience.

He came to the West initially for fishing but stayed for skiing and snowmobiling. He loves hunting, ice fishing, skiing, and floating rivers when he's not on a snowmobile. Dakota enjoys guiding snowmobile trips because each day is a different adventure into the wilderness, chasing wildlife, deep snow, or technical terrain. Most days he spends trying to be Off Grid!
