Guided Backcountry Skiing
Ripping down dreamy powder lines in the San Juan Mountains is a one-of-a-kind experience, which is why Mountain Trip offers guided backcountry trips in the surreal terrain surrounding Telluride and Red Mountain Pass. Whether you’re looking to avoid resort crowds or have been eyeing a steep, technical descent of a beautiful couloir, we can craft an ideal day for you in the backcountry.
Our Guided Backcountry Skiing trip is geared toward skiers and splitboarders with experience in the backcountry, and who prefer to be joined by an experienced guide. We will provide route finding and terrain assessment, with less of a focus on coaching and in-depth teaching about any point of the process, and more of a focus on finding the best zones, with the best snow, for the best possible day of skiing or riding.
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 AMGA trained or certified guides are familiar with the local snowpack and are avalanche professionals with extensive training and experience. Routes are condition dependent, and guides will select the most appropriate route for the day.
