Backcountry Ski and Snowshoe Tours Guided Ski and Snowshoe Adventures

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.

Take the Ride of a Lifetime

Discover some of the West’s best highways, byways, backroads and small towns. Motorcycle Montana from Glacier Country to Yellowstone Country.

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.

Our friends at Glacier Adventure Guides can get you into some seriously fun 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.

The good people at Glacier Treks offer customized, family-friendly, guided day and overnight snowshoe, cross-country ski and driving tours inside Glacier National Park, taking you to unbelievable locations inaccessible to the general public. These once-in-a-lifetime treks in the Crown of the Continent’s winter wonderland are one of the best ways to experience the park in its quietest season.

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.

Go with a guide and experience pure winter magic on, for instance, a ranger-led snowshoe tour of Glacier National Park or a Flathead National Forest ski excursion.
