A ski tour with Peak is more than a walk in the backcountry. You will be a part of avalanche assessment, terrain analysis, and learn to become a better backcountry skier/rider.
Keep up with your friends, be dialed on rescue skills, and become more familiar with avalanche hazards.
Our programs are available to a range of abilities and interests.
We are a full-service, backcountry skiing guide service based in the heart of the San Juan Mountains.
Come on a backcountry ski tour, a multi-day hut skiing trip, guided peak descent, ski mountaineering course, or AIARE avalanche course with us!
The San Juan Mountain Range is the largest range in Colorado. With 14 peaks over 14,000′ and moderate, easy-going runs near the road there is something here for everyone.
The Chugach Mountains near Valdez, Alaska are one of the most filmed ski destinations in the World. With steep glaciated peaks, a strong maritime snowpack, and quick access from nearby Thompson Pass Highway, it is ski mountaineering at its finest.
Our ski course progression offers the participant the opportunity to learn the skills to progress. Each step of the way is carefully crafted to convey information you need, break down myths, and build awareness of the bigger picture.
Our most popular option, just you and the guide. You can reserve a half or a full day, one or many days. A private day is the best option when you want a tailored experience or are working on specific skills.
The tricky San Juan snowpack is the best place to learn about avalanches.
