Explore Utah’s Backcountry Powder

Powder snow is the “Holy Grail” for skiers and riders, and enthusiasts are leaving the boundaries of official ski areas to find it. Headquartered in a state-of-the-art heliport, Wasatch Powderbird™ Guides is an unforgettable way to do just this. Tours include an epic day of powder skiing sure to elicit a surplus of smiles and memories. Wasatch Powderbird ™ Guides offers both regular operations with clients purchasing one seat or more, and private charters. For a private charter, groups or individuals can rent a helicopter for their exclusive use and access to the backcountry. Groups will be led by expert tour guides familiar with local terrain and conditions.

If skiing isn’t your thing but you would still like to get out and enjoy a powder day, cruising through the Wasatch on a snowmobile just may be your ticket to adventure. Accessing winter backcountry that is usually unreachable, participating in winter exercise with more speed and ease than snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, and seeing wildlife in its natural habitat are some highlights of snowmobiling. Make sure to be prepared with the necessary attire such as safety helmets, visor or goggles and warm clothing. There are a few main cautions to heed when on the trail. It is
best to not ride alone if possible. Make sure to be prepared for avalanches which are a harsh reality for such environments, and know the area to ensure avoidance of frozen lakes and rivers. All vital precautions to have an amazing day of outdoor exploring!
