I invite you to join me on this truly awesome day of backcountry skiing and snowboarding, as we traipse and travail around a wide array of uncrowded and untracked terrains and landscapes, all whilst picking up a variety of techniques to improve your experience, in the beautiful and delightful Bear Valley, California.

Located close by to the internationally renowned and famous Lake Tahoe, Bear Valley can often be overlooked for skiiers and snowboarders, resulting in the benefit of crowds not being too overwhelming, even in peak season.

Being just three hours away from the state capital, Sacramento, Bear Valley is perfect for skiiers and boarders of an intermediate to advanced level, and the conditions of the area allows for itinerary’s to be tailored easily.

Meeting nice and early in the morning, we then head off on a full day of skiing and boarding, as the numerous runs available to us mean we will never run out of powder to discover!

Some of the scenery around here has to be seen to be truly believed, as alpine forest tree glades give way to wide open bowls, scenic ridges and gorgeous, sweeping panoramic views, all adding up to a magnificently idyllic and tranquil experience.

At the end of the day we will have had a lot of fun, taken a lot in and hopefully given you some epic memories to take home with you.

Bear Valley is a unique destination that will make you love California even more – book now to discover!

Great guides and great snow!



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!
