Join one of our experienced mountain guides for a 2-3 day ski touring adventure on Mount Langley via the northeast couloir near Lone Pine in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.
Sierra Nevada (California)
Jan - Jun, Dec
* Enjoy a 2-day or 3-day ski descending adventure on Mount Langley.
* Trek through vast wilderness on your way to the peak.
* Feel the thrill of descending more than 7,000 feet on a gorgeous mountain.
Located near Lone Pine, the approach to Mount Langley is strenuous. However, one we reach the peak, you will be happy you made it. The views you will get to enjoy are stunning. Furthermore, while the approach is tough at times, there really is something rewarding about trekking through the wilderness on your way to a mighty mountain.
Once we reach the peak, we will make our way up the Northeast Couloir to the summit. From there, you will get to enjoy some majestic views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Afterwards, we will descend down the Northeast Couloir, where you will get to cover approximately 7,000 feet!
To participate on this trip, you should be able to ski at an advanced to expert level. You should also be in excellent physical condition.
Definitely an adventure you will never forget, skiing down Mount Langley is amazing in every way. If that sounds like an adventure you want to enjoy, please send a request. We look forward to guiding you.
We also offer a ski descending adventure on Mount Sill, which you can enjoy here.

This was an amazing trip and overall super positive experience with SWS Mountain Guides. I had a great guide with lots of mountain experience and many cool stories to share!
Overall, the fair evaluation for the SWS Mountain Guides and the guide assigned to me is 3 stars. Reasons: 1. The guide did not seem to remember or respect the fact that I was new to mountaineering and that the name of program is called “introduction to mountaineering...”. For example, the guide set his own time for walking and resting without any concern to my physical ability for that timing. The guide walked ahead many times and didn’t even notice when I fell a few times. I understand the guide is not the insurer of safety or a hand holder, but a complete abrasive approach to the service is not right, especially when it’s a paid service. Perhaps, the guide is not a right choice for introduction tours. 2. There was a miscommunication with timing of the summit day. I thought we would start summiting around 5am the next day; however, I was told less than 15 hours before that we would start hiking at 1am the next day from base camp. We arrived at base camp early afternoon, and I’m wired up, hot, and not prepared to fall asleep between 5pm-12am, thus, I didn’t sleep at all. I attempted the summit hike but around 12k feet the sleep deprivation was killing me and I was catching myself falling asleep and my body trying to lay down while waking. The guide didn’t seem to concerned about this. Lack of empathy. Eventually, I had to insist we turn around because I didn’t want to go beyond 30 hours of no sleep and still have to descend from the summit. 3. The guide did help set up the tent and food. The guide did explain layers of clothes on and off and why. The guide did help instruct how to pack and why. 4. Overall, I feel this guide is best suited for advanced climbers not introduction courses as he seems to be more of a “ill walk ahead of you” not “ill walk with you” type of guide.
Such a difficult, but the most amazing experience! Something you will never forget!
One of the best experiences we ever had. Amazing trip with lots of excitement, challenges and action - all in the most beautiful scenery. Our guide Matt played a crucial role making this trip a life time experience. Hi-fives to Matt and thanks for being the best guide! Best, Gustav and Mikael
Had an amazing experience! What memories but must be honest, we were in over our head. Feel we were physically up to it but we went from sea level to 10,000 feet in 30 hours and it was a challenge to keep up. Some time to acclimate would have made a big difference. The guides were careful and supportive. We were outside our comfort zone for sure but also realize that made it so memorable! Thanks Loren
