Course Description

Make your own tracks! Don't miss this opportunity to try skiing in open terrain with our expert guides – an ideal tour for skiers already comfortable with groomed skiing and downhill enthusiasts aspiring to try backcountry skiing.

After outfitting participants with backcountry skis and other gear, we'll shuttle together to a local favorite outdoor destination for an exciting skiing adventure. During this half-day tour, our guides will cover the fundamentals needed to travel on ungroomed trails, such as basic turning plus downhill and climbing maneuvers. Afterwards, we'll venture into the beautiful untracked side-country, experiencing varied terrain, from tranquil flat traverses to invigorating uphill climbs. (All sites are easy-to-moderate intensity.) Come join us on this opportunity to get off groomed trails and explore untouched powder.

All necessary skiing equipment is provided.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
