Even the most experienced backcountry skiers and riders will appreciate where we can bring them.  And for those looking to explore safely and learn about touring from experienced guides and instructors, they’ve now got a one-stop shop, complete with all the equipment and a full progression of terrain options.

For the 2017-'18 season, we'll have backcountry guiding and instruction available every day of the week all season long.  We encourage everyone interested to call ahead to guarantee availability.  See details below.

Every Saturday and Sunday, we'll also have regularly scheduled introductory clinics and group tours (respectively) at reduced rates.  More info here.

Plus, check out the "Get Out & Backcountry Series" featuring 4 different specialized clinics for beginners and experienced skiers and riders alike for 2 Sundays in February (4 & 11).  More info here.

Private Guided Tours and Instructional Tours:   

Prices are per person and are dependent on the number of people in the group, or the guide to client ratio.  Timing is up to the participants, but also dependent on numerous factors including snow conditions, route planning, weather, and the fitness level of the individual or group.  A half-day tour is usually 3 - 4 hours, and a full day is about 5.5 – 6.5 hours.  Full day rates apply beyond 4 hours.  Instructional tours are basically informative guided tours - for more introductory instruction, see below for the "Intro to Backcountry" clinic.
