Scheduled Course - Wednesdays Backcountry Getaway

Wednesdays Backcountry Getaway

Sneak out of the house and into the backcountry on Wednesdays with fellow backcountry enthusiasts. Sharpen skiing, skinning and avalanche safety skills in the company of friendly, professional mountain guides.

Rally your friends, this is a discounted co-ed group tour and the plan is to meet at the trailhead at 9:30am and end by 2:30pm, so that you can get some exercise and still crush life that day too.

Join when you can, guided group tours will be offered every other Wednesday as the season starts rolling. Multi-day discounts available. Contact the office for details.


This group tour is intended for participants with backcountry touring experience seeking relatable partners for the backcountry and looking to explore new terrain and avoid avalanches. Guides will select tour routes based on current snow conditions, weather forecast, avalanche risk and participant input. Fun snow and terrain will be the goal and a variety of drainages, bowls, peaks and glades will be toured throughout the season. These group tours will be offered from early January through early April.
