Backcountry PowderCamp

Powder CampWhether you are an alpine skier, telemark skier, or snowboarder our Backcountry PowderCamp is for you!  Spend 5-days exploring and skiing/riding in the famed backcountry of Crested Butte, CO. With an average snowfall of 600″ the mountains surrounding Crested Butte offer a superb playground for folks to get in their powder skiing fix amidst the beauty and ruggedness of the famous Elk Mountains.

Couple that with discounted in town lodging and local shops supplying us with backcountry touring gear and gourmet lunches and this will be a unique and unforgettable ‘earn-your-turns’ experience, unlike nowhere else in Colorado. Take advantage of our local AMGA Ski Mountaineering Certified Guides, as we travel to a different powder stash day after day, giving you a chance to sample all the goods that our backyard has to offer. Learn the basics of avalanche safety, get tips on skiing ‘off-piste’, and pick up techniques for packing, energy conservation, terrain and travel management, and a host of others…

With our experienced staff of ski guides also working as local Avalanche Forecasters and Ski Patrollers, you will be in good hands, and will be assured an incredibly safe and professional, yet fun and exciting backcountry powder skiing experience.
