Lift-accessed backcountry is as good as it gets.

By utilizing the extensive lift system of Palisades Tahoe Ski Resort, we can quickly access incredible terrain and get more skiing and riding in.

In this program, we ski guide in three distinct zones: Tram Ridge, National Geographic Bowl, and Munchkins. For the first time, Palisades Tahoe out-of-bounds terrain can now be ridden with an Alpenglow guide, opening up lift-accessed riding for skiers and snowboarders and requiring no more uphill travel than a normal day of backcountry ski touring.

Each group is private with their own Tahoe ski guide. This allows for an individually tailored day based on your groups skill and pace.
