“Safety and fun are our top priorities. We’re proud to offer the unique experience of staying in modern and comfortable backcountry yurts, providing nearly immediate access to some of the best backcountry skiing and riding in the Sierra Nevada.”

Overnight Yurt & Snowcat Assisted Backcountry Ski Touring

This is a unique experience, different from any other guided backcountry cat skiing experience. We won’t be knocking out laps with the snowcat and sending you back to the hotel at the end of the day. It’s better. We take you backcountry touring using alpine touring skis and split boards. The snowcat gets us into the zone. Then, we get to “earn our turns” (with a little help from the snowcat here and there).

It’s the purest way to enjoy backcountry skiing and our guides are here to help you get the most of it and enjoy it safely. This is an experience for the skier or rider who wants to experience the mountains in the most unfiltered way.

Then, your group will stay at one of two fully-equipped backcountry yurts. Our staff cooks up delicious meals for dinner, breakfast and your lunch for the next day.
