Notes on skiing with a Guide: Skiing with a guide can be a lot of fun although a few things may be a bit different than skiing around your local area with friends. A few tips for traveling with a guide on skis are discussed below.
Your guide’s job is basically to help you maximize the fun, travel efficiently, and minimize the risks associated with traveling in the mountain environment. They will help you with your gear and take the necessary steps to complete your tour and ascent. They will assess and teach you about local avalanche conditions. Your guide looks for the best snow and the best skiing within the constraints of managing risks.
Please contact KMAC for pricing and to schedule private ski tours. We’ll suggest a number of tours based on you and your group’s goals.View Pricing Information
(4 – 5 days) Pioneered by Harry Kent many years ago, this ski mountaineering world classic ski tour takes in a large section and major terrain in RMNP. Unlike a hut trip, this is a physically demanding adventure that requires a minimum level of intermediate skiing and mountaineering experience. Most of the tour keeps at elevations between 9,500 and 11,000 feet with several sections above 12,000 feet and higher. We’ll travel through Wild Basin and Boulder Grand Pass, Lake Nakoni, the Ptarmigan Peaks, Andrews pass and many more known and some not so well known places.
