Dear Friends of ASI:
Welcome Snow and Sunshine!:
Looks like our winter is now turning back to Spring! The skiing is awesome. Come join us!
BACKCOUNTRY SKI TOURING
Alpine, Spiltboard & Telemark
These day tours are follow up application tours to do after our Intro to Backcountry Skiing or for anyone with previous backcountry experience who want to go on a great "Sunday Tour". It provides more application of skills with refinement through tips and coaching.
We keep a more consistent pace and climb higher and farther with more ski descents than our "Intro" day.
These tours provide continuing education of avalanche safety skills. We make continued assessments, gather and record information of snowpack and avalanche conditions.

SUGAR BOWL BACKCOUNTRY
Sugar Bowl's "Lift Access Backcountry", offers endless acres of backcountry terrain off the backsides of Sugar Bowl's summits. Tactfully combining lift use with pleasant uphills (using touring bindings and climbing skins), we connect fantastic downhill runs throughout the day.
This is not only a great day to practice backcountry skills, but also perfect for return skiers and splitboarders to get more of "the goods". This is an action-packed, super fun program that always leaves skiers and snowboarders smiling at the end of the day!
