Guided Backcountry Skiing
Mountain Trip offers guided backcountry ski and splitboard outings for all abilities in the southwest corner of Colorado, around Telluride. The opportunities for steep, aesthetic couloirs, low-angle, powder-filled glades, and beautiful high alpine bowls are endless. We can craft the ideal day of backcountry ski touring for all levels, hut trips in the area, as well as instructional courses for beginners and experienced backcountry travelers alike. If you’re simply wanting to avoid the crowds of the resort, or you have been eying a technical ascent and descent of a local 14,000′ peak, Mountain Trip can help you get there.
Guided Skiing in Telluride
We provide instruction and guiding for you to navigate avalanche terrain, or to gain the confidence to drop into steep lines and beautiful couloirs beneath towering peaks.
The snowpack in the San Juan mountains is unique in many ways, with cold temperatures and high altitudes, we can find great powder during, or long after a storm. Our local Telluride guides are familiar with the local snowpack and are avalanche professionals with extensive training and experience. Mountain Trip is accredited by the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) and our lead guides all have AMGA ski guide training appropriate for the terrain or are fully certified guides.
Mountain Trip is the only guide service in southwest Colorado to be accredited by the AMGA and we bring our skills and experience guiding the world’s tallest peaks home to the Telluride area.
