Sugar Bowl to Squaw Valley High Route
Sugar Bowl to Squaw Valley High Route 2 Day

This famous North Tahoe tour provides the opportunity to learn and practice our unique High and Light ski camping system. The one that enables us to start our six-day spring tours with under thirty-pound packs. We begin this great route with a lift-ride to the summit of Mt. Lincoln at Sugar Bowl. It's truly a classic tour and a chance to refine a myriad of state-of-the-art skills en route. We strongly recommend this experience to anyone aspiring to join us on our spectacular spring ski adventures.

Previous touring experience with climbing skins is required, such as the skills covered in our Intro to Backcountry Skiing course.

Skills covered include:
  • Ultra light, yet super comfortable ski camping system
  • Excellent packing technique
  • Use of transceivers, probes and shovels
  • Touring tips with climbing skins
  • Avalanche hazard recognition
  • Appropriate travel techniques
  • Campsite selection and construction
  • Skiing with a light overnight pack
