Guided Trips With Hellroaring

Our guides are ready to show your group to the best skiing, in the safest manner possible. Whether you are experienced or new to the game, we’re here to help. Even if you are experienced, a guide can significantly enhance your trip by spending an afternoon with the group showing you the best conditions and up tracks. All of our guides are trained in first aid, as well as snow and avalanche rescue. Rest assured you’ll be well taken care of when you book a trip with Hellroaring Powder Guides. When you book a guided trip, we make sure to cover every detail. Your guide will provide breakfast and dinner each day of the trip. Be sure to let us know of any dietary needs or concerns, since each trip is tailored specifically for your group. Guided pricing starts at $150/skier/day. Availability must be confirmed prior to booking. A typical guided day starts with your guide stoking the wood stove one more time to warm everyone up, and getting coffee ready. Breakfast can be hearty pancakes and sausage,  or a lighter oatmeal, granola, and yogurt. Once everyone is up and ready, a quick beacon check and snowpack discussion key everyone up for a safe day of navigating in the backcountry. Depending on the group’s ambition level, lunch can be on the go, or followed by a nap at the hut, it’s up to you! Late afternoon sunset tours behind the hut are a fantastic way to end the day just before sitting down to a warm feast for dinner featuring fresh ingredients.
