NEW! - Introduction to Backcountry Skiing

Have you always wondered what it is like to “Earn Your Turns” with alpine touring skis and skins? Here’s your chance to learn the basics without worrying about variable snow conditions. This experience is designed to get you skinning uphill efficiently, learn how the equipment works, and learn about what you need to know and bring when venturing into the backcountry. We’ll cover all of this, and get some turns in on the best snow on the mountain, all within the boundaries of Bretton Woods. We schedule this privately or semi-privately, so you’ll get plenty of personal attention.

The White Mountains have been providing adventure for backcountry skiers for almost a century. Let us design a tour that will test your abilities and provide the adventure you’re looking for. Whether you want to explore some of the new or old backcountry glades in the White Mountains, tackle the famously steep slopes of Tuckerman’s Ravine, or glide down miles of backcountry Nordic trails, we can design a tour that suits your needs.
