What you'll do

The first thing is physical fitness. This is a high intensity workout that requires a basic level of physical fitness. We don’t not discourage anyone from joining us due to their physical fitness, however we ask that you look into the right tour for your ability level. We also ask that you come prepared with the proper clothing. Thermal layers and light jackets are good as well as the proper socks and touring gear you may want. (Extra water, snacks, clothes, etc.) we provide all the necessary touring gear as it relates to skis, boots, poles, and skins. We provide a survival backpack equipped with an avi lung as well as the following: beacon, shovel, probe, and will meet at a designated meeting spot before we begin. There we will gear up and get ready to begin our back-country adventure. The first part of the day is geared towards avalanche safety and back-country knowledge. As we skin up we will take our time doing things such as analyzing the snow layers through digging compression pits, and creating a mock avalanche report. After a light lunch with views of the Valley, we’ll switch focus and really get some skiing in. Our tour ends with an Apres beer tasting at a local brewery!
Other things to note
This is for experienced skiers only. No lift ticket required. This is a full day adventure so come prepared mentally and physically for that. As mentioned earlier we provide the ski equipment!

Meet your host, Nick

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
Hey there! My name is Nick Burns and I am a 25 year old adventurer, thrill seeker and hard working guy. Don’t let my age fool you, I’ve done lots in my 25 years on this planet and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I was fortunate enough to attend the College of Charleston where I doubled majored in Hospotality and Tourism Management and Business Admin. Not much skiing was getting done there and after skiing for 22 years of my life, I’ve decided to give back and teach the sport!

We then finish the day at Lake Tahoe Aleworx for an Apres Vous beer tasting event!
