Our open group backcountry tours are for skiers who have previous touring experience, understand the gear, and are ready to jump into a full day of ski touring. You should have the ski ability to enjoy the terrain we can access; you should be comfortable in powder snow and have some experience in technical sections. If you are comfortable enjoying a powder day at the resort and can get your way down a black/double black diamond run, then you are good to go!

Altus Mountain Guides made our ski trip to BC.

We skied 4 days with Ross Berg who tailored each day to help us find the best skiing and snow each day. Tons of knowledge and a great person to explore the backcountry with. I highly recommend them.
