3-day Ski mountaineering course in the Wasatch Range, near Salt Lake City


Join Josh, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, for this informative and scenic 3-day ski mountaineering course in Utah's Wasatch Range. Learn and practice many necessary ski mountaineering skills and techniques against the stunning backdrop of the Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Private and Group

Wasatch Mountains

3 Days





  • Enjoy the stunning scenery of the Wasatch Range.
  • Learn many necessary ski mountaineering skills.
  • Practice steep off-piste skiing and newly acquired ski mountaineering skills.


Stretching for 260 kilometers through northeastern Utah, the Wasatch Range is the perfect place for an immersive ski mountaineering course!

Designed for intermediate backcountry skiers, this course will teach you the technical skills necessary for making high-consequence ski mountaineering descents.

Starting on the very first day, we will go over avalanche mitigation strategies, practice skiing on steep terrain and go over fundamental mountaineering skills (such as tying knots, setting up hitches and going over all of the devices).

On the second day, we will learn and practice some basic ski mountaineering skills, including anchoring, belaying a skier, managing steep entrances and rappelling.

Our third and final day will be the highlight of the course. Taking place against the backdrop of the stunning mountain scenery and incredible views of the Wasatch Range, we will put our newly acquired skills to the test.

The day will be spent heading out to various different spots and trying some challenging and highly technical ski mountaineering rope work and snowpack assessment.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this informative and scenic 3-day ski mountaineering course in the wonderful Wasatch Range!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
