  • Enjoy stunning views of the surrounding scenery in beautiful Lake Tahoe.

  • Summit and ski back down one of several peaks in the area.

  • Ski pristine powder and avoid crowds in the lovely Sierra Nevada.


Tucked in the middle of the Sierra Nevada, sitting on the border between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is an amazing backcountry skiing destination!

Join one of our local and certified guides for an incredible day out in the wilderness. Depending on snow conditions and your aptitude, we will head up to any of Granite Chief Peak, Needle Peak or Lyon Peak.

These approaches generally require about two hours of hiking through some of California’s most beautiful scenery. And after that we will enjoy some excellent skiing through, usually, deep and fluffy powder.

Along the way, we will have numerous spectacular views back out toward the lake as well as into the mountains. We’ll be sure to avoid the resort areas on the mountains, meaning no dodging other skiers on the slopes and plenty of fresh powder all for ourselves.

To participate in this trip, you should have previous off-piste skiing experience, but not necessarily previous backcountry experience.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for a fun and invigorating 1-day backcountry skiing trip through the wilderness around stunningly scenic Lake Tahoe, California!

If you like the look of this trip then we think you will also enjoy our 1+ day lift-accessed backcountry skiing trip in Squaw Valley, Central California!
