Guided Backcountry Adventure

Our knowledgeable guides know how to find untracked glades, perfect steep chutes, and the best terrain in Central Colorado

Encounter pristine winter conditions in the Sawatch Range

Your guide will lead you on a short snowmobile ride to access some of the most secluded and unspoiled areas along the continental divide. From there your backcountry ski tour will begin. Skiers and splitboarders should have confidence with their downhill ability for our backcountry adventures, but need not be experts. Your backcountry adventure is customized to your skill level and goals, while staying safe and making memories of a lifetime.

“We did a snowmobile assisted ski trip on Cottonwood Pass. The terrain is
spectacular and huge. Our guide Dave was very knowledgeable and had spent a lot
of time skiing the area. I highly recommend BVMA.”
