Guided Backcountry Ski Tours FAQ

What is Backcountry Skiing?

Backcountry skiing is any type of skiing on unmarked, unpatrolled areas. In contrast to ski resorts that usually have people on marked trails that are groomed and filled with people, backcountry skiing takes place on all-natural terrain. This is a great opportunity for you to experience fresh powder, to see what the backcountry areas look like untouched by humans, and you could even see some wildlife!

How Fit Do I Need To Be for Skiing Tours?

You need to be in moderate shape to go backcountry skiing. The good news is that our trips vary widely in terms of difficulty. If you want to participate in our advanced backcountry ski adventure, you will definitely need to be in great shape for an advanced skiing experience. On the other hand, we also have trips for beginners!

Do We Learn About Avalanche Safety and Beacon Use?

Absolutely! We place safety at the top of our priority list. Backcountry skiing is going to expose you to the very best powder that these canyons have to offer. Avalanches are at the very top of our safety concerns and we will teach you how to deal with them safely, including avoiding avalanches. Before the tour starts, we are going to make sure that we do everything we can to keep you safe. We will assess the weather conditions, provide you with a lesson, and guide you throughout the backcountry in a safe, enjoyable manner.

I’m New To Backcountry Skiing – Is That Ok?

Absolutely! This is a great way to get introduced to backcountry skiing. If you are new to backcountry skiing, we will work with you to make sure that you have a great time!

Where to Backcountry Ski in Utah?

If you are looking for a place to ski in the backcountry of Utah, consider letting our guides take you on a ski tour of the Wasatch mountains. We provide a wide variety of trips that are designed for people of all skill levels. We provide introductory tours in the Cottonwood Canyons, intermediate tours in Days Fork, Silver Fork, Cardiac, and White Pine, and even advanced tours that focus on covering a wide variety of terrain.

We loved Red River! My boyfriend and I started our trip in Moab & were fortunate to have Cage as our rock climbing guide. It was the perfect morning excursion to try new types of climbing like crack climbing as both of us were used to only climbing in a gym. A week later, at the end of our trip, we came back for a rafting trip and got Cage as our guide again. He was great & gave us awesome recs for future climbs & rafting trips! Thank you Red River, we will definitely be back :)

We did Rock of Ages with Cage as we wanted something a little challenging. What an incredible experience! The rappels were varied in length and style, and the hike through was gorgeous with so many different views. But Cage really made the day special. You can tell he loves his job and cares deeply about the outdoor adventure industry. We are chatty people who share a lot of his interests so it was a great match. Cage’s knowledge of local history, his explanations for what he was doing setting up ropes, and pointing out features of the canyon kept us engaged and excited the entire time. Thank you to Cage for such a great day!

She has great energy yet matched our vibe in the boat. We did the full day trip with lunch which was delicious! Highly recommend doing the full day as it takes 45 minutes to get to the site then do safety training. It was really amazing seeing the landscape from a different perspective!

Had an amazing day climbing with John in Little Cottonwood and Big Cottonwood Canyons! Tacked on an extra day to a work trip to the area to do this. My first time doing multi-pitch, and first time climbing on rock beyond the limestone of southern Ontario. John was just great, I felt comfortable and confident with everything we tackled, and tried/learned so many new things. So happy I chose to do this, and would recommend Red River Adventures to anyone interested in doing something like this!

Perfect day trip for the family! We had a great time doing the full day trip, which included a fantastic, yet simple lunch. Our guide Jonas kept us laughing and engaged the whole time. He even interacted with the kids, getting them to play games when the water was right. If you’re on the fence about doing a half day or full day- do the full day, you won’t be disappointed!

We booked a half day rafting trip with Red River adventures and had a great time! Our driver Keelee was great, Jake gave us an entertaining ride to the river and our river guide Liz was absolutely fantastic! She is knowledgeable, highly skilled, personable and made us feel at ease. Thanks for a fun afternoon on the water!
