Expert Ski Tour


Are you tempted to explore more of the challenges the mountains present to us by pushing yourself to summit and ski their peaks? This camp offers the opportunity to do exactly that.


Our Expert Ski Touring Camp is for the female skier who spends an average of 15 days or more in the backcountry each season and who is stoked to really put the pedal to the metal when it comes to touring! From pre-planning, group communication and weather forecasting, this camp works toward answering some remaining questions you might have in regards to ski touring and winter mountain missions, while spending three days ski touring in Rogers Pass.


Ski the lines you’ve always wanted to ski, summit peaks like a lady boss, and do it all while building strong relationships with five other women.
