Backcountry Skiing Montana Resources

If you are looking to start backcountry skiing Montana, your best bet would be to link up with one of your ski buddies that has deep knowledge of the various zones and snowpack. If you’ve never been to Montana and don’t have any personal connections that can show you around, your best bet may be to make your first trip via a reputable guiding service.

Yurtski is an operator that offers backcountry yurts that you can use as your base while backcountry skiing Montana.  You also have the option to book a guided tour and there are catering options available too.

Beartooth Powder Guides is another operator that offers ski guiding services in the mountains that surround Cooke City. Their services include day trip powder tours, high alpine tours, full guided and catered hut trips, and Beartooth overnight trips.

If you are looking to do less work going uphill and get more runs skiing down, Great Northern Powder Guides is worth a look.  They operate out of the Whitefish area and have a large catskiing tenure along with a yurt for those desiring overnight accommodations.

Other options for those that are properly educated for a self-guided trip include “The Montana Backcountry Ski Guide” ebook or the “Backcountry Skiing Bozeman and Big Sky” paperback/ebook/app.

About Rails 2 Riches

Rails 2 Riches is hosted by Killington Resort in Vermont each December and includes a $25,000 cash purse to be split among ski and snowboard competitors. The venue includes an impressive custom built rail venue and draws a stacked lineup each year as this is one of the few rail jam competitions with a big enough payout to draw the industry’s best skiers. Having fun and impressing the judges is the number one goal for competitors as they look to walk away with a fat stack of cash and bragging rights for the season.  This event is great for spectators too as top ski and snowboard athletes battle it out under the lights in early December.  For spectators, this is one of the only chances each season to watch the best competitors in the sport, at the same spot, battling it out, on a course that is easy to view and fan friendly. As a result, this event makes for a great weekend for both competitors and spectators alike.

Patrick McDaniel was onsite for the event and put together a skiing highlight video of the action featuring all of the top skiers.  Check out the video recap so that you can see what went down at the event.
