  • Admire the remote beauty of the Sierra Nevada on an isolated day of ski touring.


Explore the pristine backcountry around one of Lake Tahoe’s most popular areas and spend a day skiing on Anderson Ridge! Make your way through the exciting scenery in the Sierra Nevada on a guided ski touring program across a variety of challenging terrain!

As a ski destination, Lake Tahoe has it all. Olympic-caliber runs across an eclectic range of mountains with every type of ski scenario featured as for as the eye can see. Sugar Bowl is often considered one of Tahoe’s best when it comes to backcountry skiing because of its location, vertical, and miles and miles of never-ending terrain. This is symbolized in its direct access to Anderson Ridge.

Your day program starts at Sugar Bowl and heads into the ample backcountry, making your way from Mt. Lincoln into the wilderness, dropping down on both sides of Anderson Ridge for the best possible ski conditions. Skinning up, or even into the backcountry, is straightforward and fun, adding to the incredible day of remote ski touring we have ahead of us.

The landscape includes tree-lined runs, open glades, and narrow alleys, all within reach from the top of the ridge. We will begin the day early with a briefing and gear check, making sure everyone has the required lift pass to the Anderson Ridge Tour (reached by lift or gondola from Sugar Bowl), and then we’ll off on the adventure.

The ridge places you away from the lines and crowds of any resort, and allows you to choose your lines and runs as you wish. I will ensure we have a safe and fulfilling experience, tailoring the program to fit your needs and skills. The snowpack is generous, so finding fresh powder and deep trails will be fun and exciting, pushing us to the limits of our abilities.

Anderson Ridge will offer extraordinary views while we ski. The panoramas of the surrounding Sierra Nevada are stunning, and the peacefulness of the backcountry is worth its weight in gold. You will have a personalized experience that further ignites your passion for ski touring and spending quality time in nature.

You should be in good condition for this program as an intermediate or advanced level skier. An accommodating physical fitness is also required as you can expect to spend a full day in difficult terrain.

So what are you waiting for? Book this backcountry skiing day program on Anderson Ridge NOW and experience some of the best backcountry skiing in Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada!

We can even enjoy an intermediate backcountry skiing day on Castle Peak for a different slice of Lake Tahoe scenery!

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.
