Take a trip to the western United States and discover the backcountry of one of California’s most iconic destinations: Squaw Valley! This three-day guided ski touring program immerses you in the generous powder of the Sierra Nevada for a remarkable excursion you won’t soon forget!

This program is designed to combine a world-class ski destination with practical ski touring lines to give you the ultimate backcountry experience. This mountain adventure provides eclectic terrain that includes tree skiing, alpine bowls, steep ridges, and so much more. You can expect a personal experience while covering a lot of ground during your three days in the snow.

Located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, Squaw Valley rose to prominence in the 20th century, garnering hosting privileges for the 1960 Winter Olympics. It has become one of the largest ski areas in the United States, with 3,600 acres of skiable terrain. This opens the door to an array of great backcountry destinations, from beginner lines to challenging runs just for the experts. The snowfall can exceed 12 or 13 meters, consisting of snow that drives powder hounds wild.

You will pick up valuable skills and tips along the way, improving your skiing while exploring the snow. Learn helpful tricks and practice newly-acquired techniques during an extensive three-day extravaganza on long and fun routes. The key feature of your trip is experiencing all of the perks this vast landscape has to offer. Granite Peak and the Palisades are some popular objectives that have exciting challenges and fulfilling runs, but the options are literally endless.

My experience in Squaw Valley and Truckee have made me passionate about sharing this location with others. My tangible and local knowledge of the mountains will ensure we have a fun, safe, and all-around great time ski touring here. Let me know what your personal goals and objectives are and we can tailor a trip around your needs and abilities.

You should be in good shape to take this program, with a backcountry proficiency suitable for three sustained days in challenging terrain.

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!



Guides was the best ones!!! Super stars:)
