Backcountry Adventure Center

Professionally guided Sugar Bowl backcountry tours by Alpine Skills International.

The Backcountry Adventure Center returns this season with professionally guided Sugar Bowl backcountry tours by Alpine Skills International and their AMGA and IFMGA-certified guides. Located in the first level of the Ski & Sports Chalet building in the Village, just across from the Lodge at Sugar Bowl at the base of the Disney Chair, the Backcountry Adventure Center offers something for everyone, from the curious-and-new-to-touring to the accomplished purist.

The BAC has a full calendar of programs, outings and educational seminars, including avalanche transceiver drills in the new transceiver search center, AIARE Level 1 and 2 avalanche courses, telemark and steeps clinics, snowshoe hikes, and of course in-n-out of bounds powder adventures, riding the lifts and heading out for powder stashes and endless Sugar Bowl backcountry terrain.

A fully operational Center, rentals and retail are available from resident experts and Truckee-based The Backcountry, providing everything you need, from ski, telemark and splitboard rentals, to packs, shovels, probes and skins. Call 530-426-7005 for more information, and be sure to visit the Backcountry Adventure Center to KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.
