Ski runs that never end, making turns through narly overhanging glaciers, playing with orientations to get the best snow conditions all day long, riding ski lifts and cable cars to great heights and hitting remote and isolated terrain by gravity access only…all of this describes what freeriding skiing is to Peakpowder.  This is the our home turf!
Skiing in small groups of a maximum of 4 skiers per mountain guide, we are able to handle group dynamics, keep our clients safe and satisfied, and guarantee no waiting time.  It’s all about getting in as many runs as we can, and getting our clients home safely at the end of the day.  This is how Peakpowder guides freeride skiing.

We are in the snow everyday of the season, and we choose our skiing locations based on snow pack stability and weather conditions. Peakpowder provides a snow safety pack per person including an avalanche beacon, shovel, probe poles and harness.
