Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips and Instructional Courses in Northern Utah

Come ski unforgettable snow in the challenging terrain of the Wasatch Range for a guided experience like no other!


It is a culmination of factors that leave Utah’s Wasatch Mountains with such great skiing conditions so much of the time. The skiing areas are truly world class. Yes, the area receives lots of snow, more than 500 inches annually of mostly dry, hero quality snow in favored locations, but this is only part of the story. Optimal elevation, desirable latitude, moderate climate, long and even fall-lines, fall-lines with pitch, sparse tree cover, often favorable snow stability and tremendously easy access all contribute to making the backcountry skiing experience in Utah quite remarkable. The Backcountry Pros is permitted to operate throughout the USFS lands of the Salt Lake Ranger district including throughout Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. And don’t worry, you can get a drink in Utah; skiing is the high of choice though.


Private Ski Guiding

Ski or split-board tour to the best snow and terrain that we can safely go to on the given day. We take pride in custom tailoring every guided trip around the specific needs and desires of each group and can focus on skiing and riding powder, skiing steeps or simply working on instructional techniques to help you become more proficient in the mountains. Access to tours depends on the objective but many outings start by walking from the car roadside, while others first gain the high country with ski lifts* or helicopter.*
