Backcountry Ski Traverses
The Pinnacle of the ski touring experience
Imagine a self-propelled backcountry ski traverse through a mountain range. We offer a variety of ski traverse experiences, from tent based to hut to hut trips. Late winter and early spring are the perfect time to capitalize on longer days, warmer temperatures and well settled snowpacks. Each year, we strap on our pack and head for an adventure or two, join us for a trip of a life time.
