Check Rocky Mountain adventure off of your bucket list by heading to Aspen-Snowmass for the backcountry skiing vacation of your dreams! This guided program is catered to your ambitions and needs to get the most out of one of the world’s most iconic skiing destinations in the snowy wilderness of Colorado!

Aspen is synonymous with winter sports, ski vacations, and the crème de la crème of pristine snow conditions. The snowfall compliments the landscape, with powder and corn runs just waiting to be explored. Skiing around Aspen includes alpine bowls, steep cols, and tree-lined touring that is nothing short of spectacular.

The Elk Mountains are particularly accommodating with ski lifts dotting the mountains to provide access to all kinds of terrain. Your program is designed around the magic of exiting the lift and heading out of bounds for a real trek into the wilderness. The romance and thrill of heading off-piste is a special feeling that we will harness and use for a truly unforgettable day of backcountry skiing.

We will leave around 9:00am and spend the entire day scouring the slopes for the best lines, the adrenaline-pumping runs, and the satisfying tours that await around Aspen. Some of our possible objectives include Snowmass, Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, and Buttermilk. We will return around 3:30 in the afternoon.

Depending on how you want to spend the day, we can trek or traverse to the best spots. We will spend over six hours living it up on the mountain. The scenery is stunning and varied, so each location is a whole new adventure.

This is completely your program. I will cater this trip around what you would like to achieve and see, giving you a safe, fun, and personal skiing excursion unlike any you’ve ever had. If you would like to spend more than a day in Aspen, we can make that happen and extend your trip.

A skiing proficiency suitable for a full day on the mountain is necessary for this program. You should also have a fitness level to match. Each program is different, so we can determine the best approach for specifically for you.

Book this guided backcountry skiing program NOW and spend AT LEAST a day in the notorious ungroomed terrain of Aspen making your Rocky Mountain dreams come true!

We can also check out other objectives and go backcountry skiing in Ashcroft, Castle Creek Valley, and Green Mountain – all in Aspen, too!
