Backcountry Tours

Skiers and snowboarders can experience the thrill of Huckleberry Canyon and The Gates with a Backcountry Tour Private Lesson.

Experience the thrill of The Gates! Skiers and riders can take a guided backcountry tour into Huckleberry Canyon to experience the cliff drops, cornice drops, rock chutes, open bowls, gladed runs, and powder pillows out The Gates.

Tours are available through our Private Lesson program, where a guide will educate participants on backcountry safety and teach proper use of avalanche equipment (shovel, probe, avalanche beacon, and backpack will be provided). Valid pass or lift ticket required.

The tours are appropriate for advanced skiers and snowboarders seeking a one-of-a-kind backcountry experience and will run on select days throughout the season (weather and conditions permitting). Reservations are required and can be made by calling 530.659.7453 x150.


*Weather and conditions permitting.  Avalanches are an inherent risk of the sport due to the nature of snow and its application on steep, mountainous terrain.  Avalanche Safety Tips »
