Skiing the Wasatch

Backcountry and Ski Mountaineering December through May

Description

Utah’s Wasatch mountains are home to world class skiing and “the greatest snow on earth”. Only minutes from down town Salt Lake City, the convenience of flying in and being on your skis within an hour can’t be beat.

We offer many great adventures here ranging from “slackcountry” skiing which is out of bounds skiing accessed by lifts, to full day backcountry tours!

We tailor your adventure to meet your skill level and desire, weather that is steep couliors or low angle meadows. We love it all.

Our trips appeal to those who want to experience the mountains on different terms than those found in area. We escape from the crowds and head into the backcountry to find better snow, and a wilderness setting. In the backcountry a knowledgeable guide can find powder snow weeks after it has become hard and icy in the ski area. If we receive a snow storm, even better!

Full or Half day Ski Tours

We offer guided instruction for tours tailored to your skill level, fitness level, and desires. We will teach you how to use all of the equipment, how to prepare for a tour, uphill and downhill techniques, and avalanche awareness. Beginners will be in good hands and for the more experienced skiers we will deliver the goods!

In the Wasatch, we work with Utah Mountain Adventures, a permit holder of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest
