The Palisades – The name nearly says it all.

Meet your guide the morning of your first day. Over coffee and breakfast, you’ll go through the plan for the day. After breakfast the team heads to the trailhead where you’ll discuss the route for the day and begin the approach. Most approaches in the High Sierra take many hours and cover multiple thousands of feet of vertical gain. Tours typically start early in the morning to take advantage of the mid morning and early afternoon snow conditions.
After reaching the top of your objective you transition to ski mode and begin one of the longest descents of your life. Spring snow (aka corn snow) provides some of the silkiest skiing conditions imaginable, making straightforward descents into transcendent experiences.
