Description

Calling all advanced backcountry skiers for a 1-day trip to Utah! This will be a refreshing excursion for those of you looking to meet other advanced backcountry skiers.

Utah is located in the Western pocket of the United States, and houses some of America’s finest nature, including its mountains. On this day-trip, you will get to experience this firsthand, as we make our way through some of the less-traversed ski spots.

We start off the day reviewing safety provisions and making sure that we are aware of what to do when skiing in this remote area. Once that has concluded, our experienced guides will choose a route based on a variety of different factors such as weather forecast and participant input, and our routes cover a range of drainages, bowls, peaks, and glades. Once out there, all of us hit the slopes for an active 8-hour day!

This trip is designed for advanced backcountry skiers, so please only sign up should you fit the bill.

So, if you are an advanced backcountry skier looking to meet some people at your skill-level and scale some powdered peaks, this is the trip for you! And if you enjoy backcountry skiing in Utah’s mountains, feel free to check out another one of our 3-day backcountry ski trips in Wasatch!

Benegas Brothers Expeditions' track record is proven by its outstanding safety and summit rates and the fact that clients keep coming back year after year.

It was their father's love for mountaineering and the outdoors that inspired Damian and WIllie as children to pursue their own adventures. Aconcagua and the mountains in northern Patagonia became their training ground and the place where they established themselves as world-class alpinists.

BBE was founded in 1992 and over the course of 20 seasons has guided clients from all over the world around the 4 corners of the world. The Benegas Brothers offer personalized adventures by prioritizing small groups in which family values and environmentally-friendly policies are of essence.

We had an excellent experience with Willie Benegas, he was knowledgeable and inclusive and would by all means join him again.

Willie was hugely experienced and adapted the day according to our inexperience, late middle age and heavy snow fall. It was an exhausting climb and when the weather became even more inclement we bailed out and skied down the way we had come. Willie had already displayed great flexibility with the date, trying hard to negotiate a series of storms coming across the region. In the end we made the best of a bad situation. Be prepared for additional expense. Touring skis, skins, boots and poles plus the backpacks, shovels, search poles and beacons all adds up. With tip that will add another $150 per person. The day was a real adventure and certainly a memorable one. Don't underestimate the level of fitness required. We are pretty fit but it didn't feel like it was enough!

We all had a great day out with Willi. He found us some great snow to ski. And even with a few technical issues, he worked round it with ease. He shared alot of knowledge with us all, so we all had a great powder day. We would highly recommend this trip. Tom

Willie Benegas was a superb guide for our first BC ski adventure in the Wasatch. Friendly and highly competent, he accurately assessed the conditions and our ability, and planned a trip that was both challenging and fun. Highly recommended!
