Women's Washington Backcountry
Mount Washington offers some fine powder stashes on the shady aspects outside the ski area boundaries. If you've thought about heading out but lack the confidence to explore the uncontrolled backcountry, allow one of our guides to show you the secrets of the Mount Washington backcountry in a fun and supportive women-only group.
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 inserts on your alpine skis, plus skins and optional lift access for a more traditional touring day. The guide will design the trip to work with the group's objectives.
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.
