Guided Ski and Snowshoe Adventures

Have we mentioned our brag-worthy backcountry? Our endless acres of untouched powder? Exploring the wild splendor of our backcountry terrain is an epic way to experience the depths of winter’s wonder in Glacier Country. That’s why we have so many knowledgeable and experienced guides to help you go deep and steep, whether you’re interested in a skiing adventure or you want to strap on a pair of snowshoes and trek through the pristine white snow.

Outside Perspective Begins in Western Montana.

Discover even bigger skies. Hop on a nonstop from Dallas to Missoula on American Airlines and be in Montana in less than three hours. Win $500 toward your trip.

For backcountry skiing or snowshoeing tours in Montana and Glacier National Park, we’ll share our favorite spots as well as the guides who’ll get you in the right gear and take you into the deep stuff.

If you’re ready for high-country exploration, Great Northern Powder Guides out of Whitefish is ready to help you climb more than 10,000 vertical feet into some of Montana’s best backcountry terrain. GNPG tailors their trips to every skill level—from families to seasoned experts—and they also specialize in avalanche safety training, so, rest assured, you’re in good hands. And if you’re looking for an overnight adventure, they offer backcountry yurts for a truly unique on-the-mountain lodging experience.

Our friends at Glacier Adventure Guides can help you get into the backcountry. These self-described “igloo-dwelling powder hounds” are experts at keeping you safe and having fun. They’re all certified in First Aid and CPR and trained in Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC), mountain travel and rescue, and avalanche awareness. These powder hounds are powder ready, just like our winter terrain.

Go with a guide and experience a winter wonder you’d otherwise not be able to access, like a ranger-led snowshoe tour of Glacier National Park or a Flathead National Forest ski excursion.
