Skiing Tours in the Wasatch Mountains

Utah’s backcountry skiing in the Wasatch Mountains outside of Salt Lake City is among the best on the planet – we are famous for the “Greatest Snow on Earth.”

We offer Guided Utah Backcountry skiing tours in Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood Canyon that will take you to the very best powder that these world-class canyons offer. From lift-accessed backcountry touring, to skiing and riding selections from the “Chuting Gallery,” we will show you the way to the most memorable day of skiing.

We have a collection of amazing split board and ski guides to lead these amazing ski tours. Our guides have more experience in this terrain than just about anyone. Red River Adventures knows where the best Utah snow is and will ensure that you experience the best Backcountry Skiing, Splitboarding and Snowboarding the Wasatch Mountains have to offer.

We have a level of difficulty and type of terrain for everyone!
Our “levels” of difficulty are tied to the amount of uphill skiing that is done in a day. Difficulty on the “down” can be beginner, intermediate or advanced on any of our listed tours. It is easy to do a beginner day of ski touring that accesses advanced terrain.

Lift Access Backcountry Skiing and Riding

Some of the best backcountry skiing and riding in the Wasatch is right outside the Brighton Resort boundary. Lifts provide fast access to this high mountain terrain and allow us to reach the upper elevations and best snow in the Wasatch Mountains quickly and easily. This allows you to use your energy for skiing laps rather than skinning up the approach.

We love this touring option and know how to get you to untracked powder lap after lap. Leaving the resort is not for those without the skills and equipment. Let us guide you through this terrain to provide a day that you will not forget. Gate policies vary by resort.

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.

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.

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?

We did both the half day rafting trip as well as the Bow and Arrow canyoneering. Both trips were great, especially the canyoneering. I had a 21, 13, and twin 10 year olds and this was such a fun way to spend our time in Moab for the wide range in ages of my boys. The guides were super knowledgable and fun! We had a couple of scared kiddos to do the rappelling and our guide helped make the boys feel comfortable and able. So much fun and would definitely recommend!

We want to thank Noah and Red River Adventures for an amazing climbing trip. We booked a half day trip to the Ice Cream Parlor for our first Utah, crack-climbing experience. As East Coast gym climbers with limited outdoor experience, we were looking for a guide who could get us climbing immediately in a crag where we could have a great outdoor experience. Noah was very skilled at assessing our skill level, stamina and willingness to fall trying. We'd highly recommend Red River Adventures and Noah in particular for getting you to a great spot. Better still, Noah gave us great advice about camp sites and food. You will do great if you go with this sevice.

We had a really great day! Everything was organised super smoothly and the whole red river adventures team made everything easy and safe in a really relaxed way. We did the full day trip from Fisher Towers with a 10 year old and a 13 year old. None of us had rafted before (though we'd all done a bit of kayaking) and it was exactly what we wanted. Apparently the river was running a bit low, but we still had a fun day - never terrifying and occasionally relaxing. As an introduction to rafting we couldn't have asked for more and we'd definitely book again with Red River next time we're in Moab - thoroughly recommended!

Five years ago we did rafting with Red River Adventures & wanted to replicate the experience. We booked half day trip & we enjoyed this adventure as well. Our guide, Samantha, was lovely and really qualified. She answered all of our many questions about the river, the landscape and the life in Moab. We had fun in the 2 hours we spent together. We also loved the road trip to reach the drop off area as the bus drives through one of the most beautiful panoramic roads in the U.S.A. Highly recommend! Italia

My son has really gotten into climbing for the past 4-5 months, so we booked this guided tour and took a quick trip out to Park City area for our first outdoor climbing adventure. I called a local climbing gym prior to booking and they highly recommend Red River Adventures and they did not disappoint. Full disclosure, I was a bit apprehensive and nervous, since I've only been climbing for a few weeks (to build up callouses mostly!). Thus, I was probably a bit "overzealous" about asking questions by calling and emailing, haha... However, Carl and the staff at Red River were AWESOME. They were patient and were able to guide me to the appropriate package (Full day climb, single pitch, top-roping, Wasatch mountain range). On the day of the climb, we met our guide, Cass, and she was able to feel out what we were capable of as well as what we wanted to get out of the day. Cass was a fantastic guide who was super friendly and worked HARD to set things up for us. She gave us enough instructions, but wasn't intrusive at all. That is, she allowed us to feel out and explore the climb on our own without just telling us where the next hold is, etc. This made us really think about what we were doing up there and made the experience much more personal...like, "I really did that on my own!"...a feeling of accomplishment. We were able to get in excellent climbing at all levels. Although we spent the whole day at the single location (Salt Lake Slips, Central Wasatch), there were plenty of climbs of different levels to push us (me, mostly!). The final climb, Witchhunt (5.10a), was awesome. Although it was a challenge I was unable to overcome, it ended up being the highlight of a fantastic day. I would highly, highly recommend Red River Adventures to anyone who asks and have already told a couple of my friends about them.

We booked the 1/2 day float trip and had a great time. The entire staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The entire trip was very well organized and our family of 5 (including 3 teens) really enjoyed the experience. I would definitely recommend!!

My kids enjoyed the rock-climbing experience. The most experienced climber would have liked more challenges, but the lesser experienced climbers were challenged appropriately. I felt like they were safe at all times.

One day Guided Rock Climbing - Salt Lake City Could not recommend enough. Highly professional, very organised and an incredible intro to climbing outdoors. Shout out to Cass my guide who was seriously brilliant, so knowledgeable about everything I asked and was able to tailor the day to doing some intro to lead training too! Being a female (travelling alone) I was a little bit nervous about going alone - if you are in a similar situation, this is the company to go with. Thanks again, you made my trip. Hope to be back another time.

Freundlicher Staff und motivierte Guides. Im Sommer wohl eher eine einfache Gummiboottour, denn River Rafting.

Our guide Emily was fantastic on the Chamisa canyoneering trip. I doubted my ability to complete some of the challenges on this hike and she encouraged and instructed me the whole way. She was equally great with the more able guests. Highly recommend.

My friends and I did the 1/2 day Towers trip as our first time rafting. The guide, Hudson, was very knowledgeable and great at directing us on the paddle boat. It was so much fun! We can’t wait to try some higher level rafting next. Thank you!

Carl is an awesome guide! My husband and I needed help learning multi-pitch climbing. Carl was super Knowledgeable, patient, and attentive to our needs. Thanks Red River Adventures for such an awesome experience!

We arranged a half day Canyoneering tour for me and 4 girls (ages 8-14). Red River Adventures was great in offering suggestions for this group. Booking online was easy. A member of this group had reservations about going, but Dan spoke honestly and gently. She decided to participate and was so happy she did. Dan is a great guide and helped when needed, but encouraged everyone during this great Canyoneering adventure. Looking forward to returning for another adventure.

We had Alex as our guide and she was wonderful!! The view is amazing and we had a lot of fun getting off the raft and swimming. My teenage girls really enjoyed it and got a lot of pics to share with their friends.

Red River Adventures is so organized, thorough, and friendly. Appreciated all the information they shared about the area, the terrain, stories, and more. Emily is an amazing guide—personable, informative, and such a good driver of the raft. Any age would find this enjoyable!
