NM Backcountry skiing is awesome

It’s true, some of the best skiing you’ll ever have is in the backcountry where we can take you on a backcountry ski or ski

mountaineering tour in New Mexico. We’re out there ski guiding in New Mexico and Colorado all winter and well into the spring even after the lifts have closed for the season. You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy backcountry skiing. Ski New Mexico with some of New Mexico’s best backcountry ski guides.

We guide backcountry skiing, back country snow boarding, split boarding, and out of bounds adventure skiing in Santa Fe New Mexico and in the San Juan Mountains in Southern Colorado. Skiing in the Southwest is awesome for several reasons. Storms roll in and out, leaving blue skies and good visibility. New MExico Skiers enjoy light and fluffy powder in the mid winter and great corn skiing in the spring. And most of all, the solitude and adventure of the spirit of the Southwest that only New Mexico can offer.

Ski Mountaineering in the Chugach Mountain Range of Alaska houses some of the best skiing in the world. Whether it’s a day outing or a week long “high and wild” trip, contact us and let us help you make the trip of the year !

Winter is one of the best times to be in the mountains and backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering can get you out to have that great experience. We guide winter ascents and descents from many incredible summits in New Mexico, Colorado, Alaska, and the European Alps. Knowing how to get around, what equipment to use and how to avert the dangers of avalanches is only part of the picture, but you can definitely sign up for one of our world-class AIARE avalanche courses to learn more about it.
