Conveniently located just outside of Salt Lake City and known for world class snow and great amenities, Utah’s Wasatch Mountains are a great destination for skiers of ALL LEVELS! The backcountry of the Wasatch offers endless terrain filled with fresh powder and pristine wilderness ... the perfect setting for YOUR next outdoor adventure.
At WMG, we can’t WAIT for winter ... we just love to ski. That’s why we run ski-touring days as well as longer ski trips all season long to immerse YOU in truly out-of-this-world backcountry skiing. The renowned Cottonwood Canyons are our very own backyard, and these canyons are famous for the “Greatest Snow on Earth”.
We offer privately guided trips through the backcountry for skiers of TRULY all levels and interests. As local residents, we know all the ins and outs of a huge area, like the back of our hands. Whether you prefer gentle tree runs or steep couloirs, there is ideal terrain for everyone. We even have the option for guided “slackcountry skiing,” which means taking a lift up and skiing out-of-bounds on the way down.
We customize your adventure based on your exact interests, fitness level, and snow conditions, and offer from half-day trips all the way up to multi-day trips. We are very happy to guide BEGINNERS or those who are new to backcountry skiing. We will make sure you have the training you need, including how to prepare for the backcountry, the necessary gear, uphill and downhill techniques, and avalanche awareness and safety. Tours range from lower angle intro skiing, to high summits, couloirs, and high mountain traverses (and just about everything in-between!).
Whether this is your first time in the Wasatch Range, or you’re a veteran of the area, rest assured that plenty of secrets await!
So WELCOME ABOARD! Here at Wasatch Mountain Guides, our expert team have dedicated their lives to the mountains, and chosen the Wasatch Range as their home ... for good reason! We just can't wait to share the breathtakingly beautiful and wild Wasatch mountains with YOU.
