RMNP Classic Ski Tour

RMNP Ski Tour

Rocky Mountain National Park offers up terrain for all skiers and splitboarders, including mellow glades, open bowls, steep couloirs and lofty summits. Each week, your guide will select a tour that’s appropriate for the group’s skill and current conditions. During the RMNP Ski Tour you will experience a full day of beautiful scenery, great company, and classic ski touring. We recommend taking the Intro to Backcountry Skiing course before attending this course, or have previous touring experience.
