We are excited to offer you a backcountry ski getaway here in the Wasatch mountains. Your lodging for 4 nights will be a rustic mountain home located off guardsman pass road in Big Cottonwood Canyon. From this cabin, you will have 3 days backcountry skiing right out the backdoor and other nearby areas.

- Gear List
The cabin can fit up to 8 people if you are family or friends. It has 2 Queen beds, 3 single beds, and a full bed. This weekend includes all of your food prepared for you so you can just ski and relax. Beautifully, this cabin sits high on the hill giving you lots of exposer to the brilliant winter sunshine that we get here in the Wasatch. or our deep powder storms that frequent the area. Either way from here we can easily access a wide variety of terrain either right out the door or with a short drive. It is also possible to have a lift access day from Brighton or Solitude if you are wanting a warm-up day or a bi-canyon tour.
We have a 4-1 skier to guide ratio, so if you have a group of people between 3-8 folks we can set you up for an amazing weekend with 1 or 2 guides. Similarly, we can try to pair you with some people of similar skiing ability and interest. It works best if you put together a group of your family or friends for this as you can align your desires.
Once we know your current ability, training, and desires we will tailor the trip to you. For example, if you want to learn about avalanche hazards and science we can put extra focus on teaching. Maybe you want to become competent to travel on your own, then we can begin to build your knowledge, judgment, route finding, trail breaking, and assessment skills. Perhaps you want to ski hard and get as much vertical as you can in a day? Cleverly, we can tailor these days to charging while staying within a perimeter of safety for your ability and current conditions. We will always review and make sure everyone knows how to use their rescue equipment.
