Join our private ski guides for a single lap in the Tram Ridge Zone backcountry! Avoid using backcountry skis and boots and still get a taste for backcountry skiing using your everyday resort setup.

At the top of Broken Arrow, your private guided ski group will exit the resort boundary, entering the Palisades Tahoe backcountry, exclusive only to Alpenglow ski guides. Expect a 5-10 minute hike upon exiting the boundary and another 10-15 minute skate out of the zone after skiing.

Technical
Intermediate and Advanced skiers or riders. Skiers and riders must be competent in a variety of terrain and snow conditions. Skiers and riders must be able to link turns on ungroomed runs while maintaining control. This is comparable to skiing ungroomed black diamond terrain confidently.
