Mount Washington offers some fine powder stashes on the shady aspects outside the ski area boundaries. If you've thought about heading out but lacked the skills and experience to venture into the uncontrolled backcountry, join one of our guides as they let you in on the secrets of the Mount Washington backcountry in a fun and safe way.
Tours can be done with your regular alpine skis or a snowboard using the lifts and vehicle shuttles to get back up for another run. If you're interested in doing a little uphill touring as well, we can incorporate touring skis or a splitboard for a more traditional touring day. Whether or not the group chooses to do some uphill on foot, we'll use the lifts to speed access and increase the quantity of downhill skiing or riding on the day. To facilitate this, we've arranged access to specially priced, 2-ride lift tickets that you'll purchase as an add-on below (unless you have a seasons pass or access to your own ticket).
If you don't own your own touring gear and would like to try it out, Ski Tak Hut offers 50% off rentals for all Island Alpine Guides customers while on one of our trips.
You should be an advanced skier or snowboarder in natural snow conditions to sign up for a posted trip. If your skiing ability is less than this, please get in touch so that we can create a compatible group for you.
