Resort Lift Access Ski Touring
Experience Utah's Wasatch Backcountry, Euro Style
There’s nothing like doing the backcountry, Euro style! Exploring the Wasatch is similar to a mini Alps vacation where you can take one of the many resort's lifts and access world class off-piste terrain. Whether you want to bump out into the backcountry for quick laps only to return back to the resort, or you want to use the ski resort gates as a launching pad for a big day in the alpine, this adventure is unique to this range and not to be missed. Once off the lifts our guides are equipped with an intimate knowledge of the backcountry areas and are trained to provide you with a safe and fun experience.
*The ski lift is part of the resort infrastructure (a separate entity) and all guiding services will begin at the backcountry gate.
$425 for the first person;
$275 for each additional
For groups up to 8 people (4 to 1 client ratio).

We’ll scale the objectives based on conditions and rider’s ability. This is for people who want to earn their turns, and find out what we mean by "best snow on Earth!"
