Calling all intermediate skiers searching for the challenge and solitude of the American backcountry.
Step up your skiing skills on an action-packed day dedicated to learning the fundamentals of day tours and multi-day tours.
Tucked away in the far north west of the United States lies the breathtaking Mount Hood National Forest in the state of Oregon, close to the city of Portland.
Running south of the Columbia River Gorge, the national forest extends for more than 60 miles. Stunning lakes and trickling streams, forest-carpeted mountains and dormant volcanoes flurried with snow.
Learn the proper use of communications gear, how to handle emergencies, review avalanche basics, how to properly carry skis, select the right terrain, and conduct beacon checks.
And know how to develop route plans and suitable alternative objectives, what to pack in a backcountry repair kit, and fundamentally, how to ski in variable weather and snow conditions.
Our action-packed course, which should last for approximately 6 hours, will be instructed in the northeastern section of the Mount Hood National Forest.
Potential participants need to be able to handle intermediate and advanced runs who can also negotiate tree runs. And fitness levels should be able to endure sustained and strenuous exercise.

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.
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!
Nate was very knowledgeable and got me to the top of mountain. He’s not as engaging as most of the guides I’ve had over the years. I’ve learned a lot about most of my climbs as guides talk about the mountain and the area maybe even plant and animals and I enjoy getting to know them better. We did talk a bit more on the way out of the trailhead. All in all a good experience. But not sure your company told him I had a knee replacement and would be slow.
