In the Trails.com Backcountry Skiing and Backcountry Snowboarding section you will find everything from easy backcountry ski and snowboard routes to extreme backcountry descents and even extended overnight backcountry skiing and snowboarding trips. We have ski mountaineering routes and ascents, challenging descents, plenty of places to ride fresh, untracked powder in the wilderness, and alpine touring trails– something for backcountry skiers, snowriders, telemark skiers, and randonnee skiers of all abilities and experience levels. Each backcountry skiing and snowboarding trip is a complete chapter from a ski and board guidebook and includes a detailed trail map, driving directions to the trailhead, and a clear description of the route, all produced by well-known outdoor guidebook publishers. Every backcountry ski or snow board trail is linked to USGS topographic maps from the trail overview page, and many also offer a host of additional features like route photos, trail elevation profiles, regional locator maps, and avalanche danger assessments.
