Colorado is known as a winter vacation hub and a skiers’ and snowboarders’ paradise. While the ski areas in the state provide great amenities and access to terrific inbound terrain, much of the best terrain lies outside the boundaries of ski areas (i.e. Aspen, Breckenridge, Steamboat, or Vail Colorado). In addition to stellar backcountry skiing terrain, the backcountry experience provides few crowds and access to un-skied virgin slopes.
Our goal at Colorado Wilderness Rides And Guides is to provide ski access to these hidden gems. As with any winter backcountry activity, our number one priority is your safety. In addition to providing access to some of the best skiing terrain imaginable within a two hour drive of a major metro area such as Boulder or Denver Colorado, we will educate you about traveling in avalanche terrain and help make you a safer and more educated backcountry traveler. For those who want to aquire even more advanced knowledge and skills, we also teach avalanche certifications courses.
Our tours are custom designed and tailored for everyone from the novice backcountry traveler who wants to try alpine touring for the first time to the very experienced skier looking for some amazing experiences and a little extra education and insight into traveling in this amazing winter/spring environment.
Through Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides backcountry ski trips, your group receives roundtrip transportation, expert local feedback, logistical support, and the best and most experienced professional guides certified with AIARE.
