Full Day Guided Backcountry Skiing & Snowboarding
I thoroughly enjoyed skiing and learning with you. It’s always rewarding to be in the mountains with a real pro.
Full Day Guided Backcountry Skiing in the San Juan Mountains
Learn how to backcountry ski or join one of our guides for the backcountry ski day of a lifetime! This is a full day of instruction and guiding that will be tailored to your ability level and interests. If you are a beginner, we will help you learn the basics of ski touring on easy-going, moderate runs near the road. If you have backcountry skiing experience, we will arrange a high-level ski tour that includes big powder runs and lots of vertical.
World Class Backcountry Skiing and Snowboarding
We operate throughout the Northern San Juan Mountains around Ouray, Silverton, and Telluride, Colorado. This vast area includes the easy-to-access runs near Red Mountain Pass and Silverton, the big peak descents in the Mt. Sneffels Range, and the full length of the San Juan Hut System. Incredible backcountry skiing and snowboarding opportunities exist for all ability levels. There are quiet tree runs that hold powder for weeks after a storm, big open bowls with acres of untracked snow, and steep faces that descend from craggy summits. The terrain is big, awe inspiring, and uncrowded.

Our instructors and guides have been hand picked for their depth of experience as professionals in the snow and avalanche industry, and for their welcoming, approachable demeanor.
