Description

NOTE: Due to Park City's recent backcountry gate closures, we are limited with our access. On days where Peak 5 may experience delays or closure, or when the gate will not reliably be open, we will shift the tour to Big or Little Cottonwood Canyons. We can offer side-country access from Solitude, Brighton, or Alta as well.

Lastly, there is the option of hiring transportation from Park City to Big Cottonwood Canyon where we can tour along the Park City Ridgeline and guide you to end your day inbounds at Park City.

If you remain committed to ski touring from Park City Mountain Resort, your additional cost will include providing a day pass for the guide. We remain committed to providing the best and customized experience during your day with us!


Ski in the ungroomed, untracked mountainside of Utah from the world-class area of Park City.

Part of the Wasatch Back that is linked to the Rocky Mountains, Park City has gone from a derelict mining town into a touristic hot spot for winter sports.

It was a major location for both skiing and snowboarding events during the 2002 Winter Olympics.

The Wasatch is quite a unique range that presents easy access to some of the greatest snow in the world. And with our team of professional guides, we have intimate knowledge of the region, to keep you safe and entertained the whole day.

We’ll be exploring the central and northern sections of Wasatch, such as Big Cottonwood Canyon, Ben Lomand, Ogden Peak, North Fork Park, and the Park City ridgeline.

Beyond the sounds of the crowd, we’ll reach areas where chairlifts can’t, and witness stunning scenery reserved for few riders. The climbs may be strenuous at times, yet the rewards are unparalleled.

So whether you’ve been on countless backcountry tours, or looking to venture into your very first, we’ll come up with the very best plan that suits the group.

Potential participants should have an intermediate level of skiing, as well as having a good level of fitness, in order to join the trip. And don’t worry, as you don’t need to have previous backcountry experience.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the great mountains of Utah and explore the wild slopes surrounding Park City on a full day of skiing.

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!
