Backcountry Skiing

Lost Trail Lodge Backcountry Skiing    2 Day

Our premier, first class experience for backcountry skiers! We have assembled a program to provide the quick getaway combining the best high mountain terrain, the most experienced ski mountaineering guides and most charming backcountry lodge in the Tahoe area.

It begins with lift transport at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort. With your guide, you'll leave the boundary of the ski area with avalanche transceivers, probe and shovel and only a small, light day pack. You'll ski and skin climb the best terrain of the Anderson Ridge crest until the last run taking us into the forest, arriving at the beautiful backcountry lodge in Cold Stream Canyon. After hors d'oeuvres, relaxation and dinner, we'll enjoy a good nights sleep in a beautiful room with a loft that is private to our group. An early rise, hearty breakfast and a brisk climb brings us to new, high terrain and more great descents. After more wonderful skiing we'll tour out of the canyon to complete this stellar ski adventure.

Skills we will practice along the way:
  • Terrain travel with climbing skins
  • Avalanche hazard recognition
  • Use of transceiver, probe and shovel
  • Uphill turns and kick turns
  • Downhill terrain utilization to avoid hazard
  • Appropriate travel techniques

"I really had a fantastic time on the Lost Trail Lodge trip. The only problem was that it was too short. It was delightful to ski down from Mt. Lincoln and Judah and arrive at the lodge. That place is a gem."
