Sierra Nevada

1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec




There are numerous fantastic areas to enjoy a day of backcountry skiing in the Sierra Nevada. However the area around the town of Mammoth Lakes has to be one of the best. Due to its location in the eastern Sierra Nevada, and its high altitude, there is an abundance of fresh powder during the winter months. As a result, there is ample terrain that can be explored throughout the area. Thus making it one of the best places to ski in the entire mountain range.

The scenery you will get to enjoy throughout this day trip is absolutely unforgettable. From the peaks above to the vast landscape beyond, you will be in a constant state of amazement. And when it comes to the skiing, you will have your choice of fantastic descents as well. Some of those descents include Mammoth Crest and Mount McGree.

Furthermore, the town itself is a great place to spend a few days, as there are wonderful accommodations for every taste. So while this backcountry trip is for only 1 day, you could easily spend several days in Mammoth Lakes.

In order to enjoy this trip, participants should be able to ski downhill at an advanced level. They should also be adept at skiing in ungroomed conditions. Finally, as this can be a physically demanding trip, participants should also be in good physical condition.

If you are looking to ski in the Sierra Nevada, but want to be away from the crowds, then this day of backcountry skiing around the resort town of Mammoth Lakes is for you. It is both challenging and rewarding, and is a trip you will not soon forget. So send us a request, and let us guide through this incredible, beautiful area.

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!
