We work hard to help you refine your techniques and make adjustments to the new gear. Start on easy terrain while progressively moving to ground that we will experience on a backcountry ski tour. We introduce basic uphill and downhill travel techniques. Receive instruction from a PSIA certified ski instructor or backcountry ski guide on strategies for backcountry skiing.

Mt Shasta Ski Weekend

Backcountry Ski or Ride Weekend

Mt Shasta – 2 Days
$650.00 with one
$400.00 per person with two
$300.00 per person with three or more

Join our guides and make an entire weekend of exploring the Shasta backcountry. Combining two one-day clinics allows us to access much further into Mt. Shasta’s famed backcountry. First, a full-day tour on the lower mountain puts the skills from day one into action and learning new tactics. Then on day two, learn how to select safely and negotiate both the uphill and downhill terrain. Our tour teaches us how to do this as efficiently as possible, leading up to an epic downhill adventure.
