Wasatch Backcountry Ski Guides – Ski & Splitboard Tours

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,” our Utah ski guides 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 exhilarating Utah ski touring trips. Our guides have more experience in this terrain than just about anyone. Red River Adventures’ Wasatch backcountry ski guides know where the best snow is and will ensure that you experience the best Utah 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.

Guided Backcountry Ski Touring 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!

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!

Shout out also to the business team for their graciousness when I had a scheduling issue. Can’t recommend enough.

This section of Colorado River doesn’t offer the most thrilling rapids, but they’re good fun and the surrounding scenery is spectacular. Our guide Molly was top-notch, and we definitely recommend booking the longer float with lunch for two reasons: (1) the longer trip includes the best rapid of the day and (2) lunch was surprisingly delicious - Molly’s signature “Conewich!”

Our guide Jordan, and everyone who works there, were amazing. Jordan was fun, extremely capable and knowledgeable. The scenery was equally amazing. My only complaint is that there was a fair amount of waiting. Can you do the safety briefing on the bus or something? Send the equipment out first? It would be nice if there was less time waiting around in the heat. At least there was a pavilion for shade. Overall, had a great time

The course “Rigging for Rescue in Semi-Technical Terrain” hosted by Red River Adventures and lead by Derek DeBruin was a great experience. We covered everything from active and passive protection placements, anchor building, various belay techniques and short roping in the context of moving an individual whom is being rescued safely over different types of terrain. We also went into when and where to utilize different techniques depending on the level of risk, technicality of terrain and competence of the rescuer. A scenario wrapped it up and put a bow on it, all for a very reasonable price. Thanks!

We went on a full day rafting adventure today. Our guide, Savannah, was awesome! All the guides were informative and well prepared. The information provided was interesting and didn’t seem rehearsed. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because the lunch provided was not something commonly preferred by most people. It would’ve been nice to receive a menu, so we could’ve brought our own sandwiches or power bars. When catering to the masses it’s better to provide simpler fare. Although I was impressed with the gluten free option.

We had a blast and highly recommend rafting with Red River Adventures!! My husband and I took our 5 kids, ranging from 6 years old to 15. Maggie was our guide and we loved her! She was extremely knowledgeable of the river and the surrounding areas. She was amazing with our one kid who was extremely nervous, talking with him the whole time about what to expect and when. She was also great with our one kid who wanted to row the entire time! Liz made us laugh while talking about the scenery and the local history. Another guide gave restaurant tips for after rafting. They helped keep the 40 minute bus ride interesting. And shout out to our bus driver! I wish I could remember her name! She had legit skills driving a huge bus while hauling a trailer of rafts!

Crack Camp with Mary Catherine Eden is the best thing any crack climber could dream of! She is beyond talented but also a great coach who can both push and support you with skill and compassion.

My son loves his climbing camps at momentum gym and now he got to see what it’s all for! Climbing with red river adventure out in the real world has blown his mind! What an unforgettable and amazing experience. No doubt we will be booking more climbing sessions with these fantastic people!

We aren’t exactly outdoorsy, I booked this when I knew we would be passing through Moab and I wanted to get my family out of our comfort zone and I am so glad I did. My 12 year old son and my husband would both rather read a book than go outside and they had an absolute blast. I chose Red River because they mentioned using smaller groups which appealed to my introvert soul. Everything from booking to leaving at the end was simple and easy. Our guide Emily was so much fun, full of facts about the region and skilled enough to keep my, less than adventurous family from drowning. Some of the reviews I read prior to booking complained about the river not being wild enough but this was exactly what I had hoped for. The rapids we did encounter were exciting and fun while giving us enough time to paddle and enjoy the scenery between the little adrenaline hits. My son had a grin on his face the entire time. Lunch was delightful. The other guests were courteous and entertaining. We did encounter other rafting companies and they were so full of rafters I would have been uncomfortable in their groups. . Our family of 3 was given our own raft with Emily and the larger groups were kept close to each other by their incredibly skilled guides. I was never worried about a thing and I’m so glad we chose Red River Adventures.

Great experience! My partner and I did the AM half day raft trip. The bus ride to the put in was very entertaining! Amazing views and fun rapids on the river! Our guide, Liz, was the best part though. She had so much interesting information to share with us. We were so lucky to have such knowledgeable guide! Thanks Liz!! I definitely recommend Red River Adventures.

Molly was an amazing guide for our 1/2 day mountaineering trip. She made my husband & I feel so assured of our safety while rappelling in beautiful canyons while keeping a super positive & good humored nature. She was a blast to hike with & we recommend her & Red River Adventures to anyone. We hope to have more adventures with them in the future!
