    GUIDED SKI TRIPS

    IN THE SIERRA NEVADA, ALASKA AND THE EUROPEAN ALPS

    Fellow backcountry skiers and snowboarders, welcome to mecca. We know why you love to ski, because we are skiers too, to the core. We don’t just live in the Eastern Sierra and it happens to be a good place to backcountry ski. We live here because of the skiing. We are blessed with copious snowfall amounts, an incredibly long ski season, some of the greatest snow on Earth, and hands down the biggest and best ski terrain in the lower 48. So you can bet that if we aren’t skiing here, then we better be skiing somewhere else that’s really good.

     

    Our trip design team at SMG has selected ski destinations and itineraries much like a chef chooses the ingredients for a gourmet meal. We start with only the best, and we carefully cultivate it into a potential experience of a lifetime. All of our ski programs may be customized to best suit your desires and abilities. You bring the passion, and we’ll show you the goods!
