Ski Trips with Elevated Guiding
Whether you are tired of waiting in lift lines only to ski hard snow, or looking for a high and wild backcountry skiing experience, Elevated Guiding offers a trip to suit your fancy. All our trips are human-powered, meaning we’ll hike, climb or skin to the top of the run. Often called “earning your turns,” backcountry skiing combines the best parts of hiking in the mountains with an unparalleled skiing experience.
Skinning? What’s That?
The most efficient way to travel in the backcountry in winter is with the use of climbing skins — special nylon strips that cover the base of the ski to give it more traction — and touring bindings that allow for an uphill walking mode as well as a downhill mode. If you’re new to backcountry skiing, try our Mail Cabin Classics tour on Teton Pass, or one of our day tours in the Canadian Rockies or Rogers Pass, and we’ll sort out all the technical jargon while enjoying the best the backcountry has to offer.
The epitome of ski-in ski-out vacationing, hut trips are the full mountain experience. Elevated Guiding provides guided ski tours based out of Canada’s Alpine Club huts. For a remote tour in a wild setting, try the Wapta Traverse. If you’re looking for something steep and deep, the Youngs Peak Traverse provides a tour of Canada’s best powder.
Got Anything Steeper?
If you’re looking for steep, technical lines in alpine terrain or runs that require rappelling, sample our ski mountaineering offerings in Grand Teton National Park. Mount Moran offers excellent steep skiing in scenic terrain while the Grand Teton provides a challenge for experienced ski mountaineers and beckons all.
