WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR GUIDED BACKCOUNTRY SKI TOUR

All of our trips start with an avalanche orientation, transceiver and transportation to the trailhead. You will be required to provide your own touring equipment which should include ski boots, skins, skis and poles. You are also required to bring your own water, snacks and lunch. Our guided ski tours require at least one and a half hours of uphill travel. If you have your sights set on a peak descent, couloir or something above tree line, plan for more uphill travel and a longer day. You will enjoy your experience significantly more if you are in good physical shape.
