What you'll do
We will meet at the resort of your choice (Alpine, Squaw or Mt. Rose where I have a pass, other options upon request and extra $). After becoming familiar with your skill level(s) we can adventure to the best ski decents, challenge your skills, explore beautiful mountain scenery, hike the ridges of Alpine Meadows and bag the peaks of Squaw. You will help plan the day according to what type of skiing you are looking for but if you are up for a work out and really getting to know the resort I'm the fun active guide you are looking for. Skill development and lessons will be apart of each ski guided tour. Education about the snowpack, avalanche awareness and off piste skiing techniques may apply depending on your skill level.
Danielle & Darren
A 20 year resident and extreme ski enthusiast in Tahoe City with almost 40 years skiing in the Sierras. My winters consist of over 100 days skiing each year, many of them exploring my home mountains of Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Mount Rose and Tahoe backcountry . I spent over a decade employed by the race department or ski team at Squaw/Alpine. My knowledge of each mountain is extensive as I am a powder hound, ridge explorer, backcountry skier and top to bottom mogul master. I've got the local knowledge and fun ski lines you are looking for, especially if you are an expert skier that wants to learn the mountain and ski like a local! Apres ski time and restaurant tours can be included with your adventure at your request. Squaw Valley is the mecca of Apres ski on the west coast, gain my insider knowledge of where it's at.
Where you'll be
Squaw Valley offers an extensive lift network with peaks to hike and all sorts of challenging and amazingly steep terrain. We will ski the favorite lines of many famous skiers. At Alpine our group can tour the pacific crest in search of fresh powder in one of many bowls. From Grouse Rock to Estelle Peak, the sights are magical and the enjoyable skiing is what makes dreams come true, always in search of the sparkle pow. Mount Rose=The Chutes!!
