Sidecountry skiing is when you utilize the resort’s lifts to get to the summit and then simply take an uncharted course down to the base. In essence, it’s backcountry skiing without all the hard work.
Due to the advanced nature of the content of this camp, skiers and riders who are unable to match the pace of the group will be provided with 2 days of skills based coaching, normally a $420 value.
Price: $350 (Lift ticket not included). Camp fees include guiding and coaching, early mountain access and video.
For Skill Levels: Black through Double Black

Snowbird Mountain School cannot extend purchase deadlines, provide refunds, allow students to switch dates between sessions or provide “make-ups” for missed classes. Due to the unique quality of our resort location, there are times when Little Cottonwood Canyon road and/or lift access is delayed due to avalanche danger. In these cases we monitor the situation closely and send programs out as soon as there is staff available and conditions warrant. Circumstances change with each situation and therefore it is important for guests to communicate with our staff. If lessons are missed due to these extreme circumstances, we will make every effort to accommodate our guests.
Unless otherwise indicated, children’s programs are for 3 - 6 year olds, youth programs are for 7 - 15 year olds and adult programs are for age 16+.
