Guided Ski Touring at Some of the World’s Best Venues

We are a full-service, professional backcountry skiing guide service in the heart of the San Juan Mountains. Come on a backcountry ski tour, multi-day hut skiing trip, guided peak descent, ski mountaineering course, or AIARE avalanche course with us! Our programs are available to a range of abilities and interests.

San Juan Mountains

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.

Ski Courses

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.
