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!

Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



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.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!



Nate was very knowledgeable and got me to the top of mountain. He’s not as engaging as most of the guides I’ve had over the years. I’ve learned a lot about most of my climbs as guides talk about the mountain and the area maybe even plant and animals and I enjoy getting to know them better. We did talk a bit more on the way out of the trailhead. All in all a good experience. But not sure your company told him I had a knee replacement and would be slow.
