UINTA SKI TOURING

Snowmobile Accessed Ski Touring in Utah's Uinta Mountains

Uinta Powder Skiing

About 40 air miles east of the storied Wasatch Range, the Uinta Range extends east along the Utah/Wyoming border like a giant alpine crescent. The snowcapped peaks in the Uinta Range are the highest mountains in Utah. This range is off the radar of most all skiers due to a lack of plowed roads in winter. Access points to the peaks are set back by several miles of snow-covered roads. Skiing in the Uintas requires either serious motivation, freakish fitness, or the helpful throttle of a snowmobile. With the right tools, obstacles related to access can be overcome and some of the area’s greatest attributes are revealed: remote and majestic wildness!

 

We ski in the northwestern and north-central portions of the range generally between 9,000' and 11,000’. Ski runs vary from gentle alpine meadows to gladed slopes to steep tree lined hallways. On the northern aspects, the snow normally stays cold and dry all season. Skiing in the Uintas is adventure to experience!

Private Ski Guiding

Ride deep into the mountains on snowmobiles to what will effectively be your private mountains for the day. Skin up, leave the snowmobiles behind, and relish the wilderness on a ski/split-board tour. We'll enjoy the best snow and terrain that we can safely access on the given day. Much of this remote country has seen very few skiers, if any at all, over the years. 

 

We take pride in custom tailoring every guided trip around the specific needs and desires of each group. We can focus trips on skiing and riding powder, skiing steeps, or simply practicing techniques that will help you become a more proficient skier in the mountains.

Uintas Ski and Stay

Day ski tour  with snowmobile access for two or more days in the remote Uinta Mountains, each night returning to the comforts of beautiful onsite accommodations at The Cabins at Bear River Lodge.
