Description

I invite you on this wonderful day of backcountry skiing which we will indulge in, as we traipse and traverse around the glorious skiing conditions of Breckenridge, Colorado, known the world over for its awesome runs and mesmerizing scenery. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or have been skiing for years, we are able to cater for skiers of all levels and abilities.

Nestled within the internationally renowned Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge has a fascinating history intertwined with the Gold Rush, and is a former mining town. It is now known as a veritable alpine and outdoor activity playground, and every year some of the biggest events on the ski and snowboard calendar are held here.

After meeting in Brekenridge and going over a quick safety and equipment check, we then head to the slopes for our skiing. There are multiple runs available depending on how you feel, and the relatively remote and pristine areas we go to ensure that crowds are never much of an issue.

Breathing in the crisp, cool and fresh air on the slopes will make you feel more alive than ever, and some of the sweeping, panoramic views you will be exposed to are truly awe-inspiring.

The alpine forests and surrounding landscapes and terrain are captivating and idyllic, and throughout the day we will ensure you are at optimum comfort and ease.

We then finish in the afternoon, hopefully having improved your skiing technique and increasing your hunger to delve in to more skiing in this spectacular region.

Skiing around Breckenridge is an unforgettable experience – book now so you don’t miss out!

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.

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!
