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.

There's This Place Where Every Trail is Worth the Trek

Three rivers and seven wilderness areas meet in Missoula, Montana, a small town with enormous personality. Visit Missoula and experience it for yourself.

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, like our friends at Whitefish Outfitters who can show you some seriously fun backcountry in Glacier National Park and Whitefish. Experience a true winter wonderland like you’ve never see it before, or take a ranger-led snowshoe tour of the park.

Another way to slay the backcountry is to access higher elevations by snowcat on a guided backcountry ski trip with Great Northern Powder Guides. Their custom snowcats access terrain as high as 7,500 feet in the Stillwater State Forest. This powder playground boasts diverse terrain for cat skiers and boarders, steep and deep seekers, and even first-timers.

Avalanche safety should always be top of mind when you’re headed into the deep stuff. Carry avalanche safety gear, know the red flags of an unstable snowpack, check the avalanche forecast, and get educated in avalanche safety.

Recreate Responsibly Plan Ahead, Play it Safe, and Leave No Trace.
