Welcome to the Vail Powder Guides website! Ben and Jenna Bartosz have owned and operated Vail Powder Guides since December 2006. Prior to purchasing VPG, Ben and Jenna worked for the previous owners for 14 and 4 years, respectively. Not only do we have extensive experience skiing and guiding in our ski terrain, but we also have backcountry experiences from years and miles ski touring and mountaineering and we have spent countless hours teaching, coaching and guiding skiing.

Vail Powder Guides is the only guided snowcat skiing outfitter permitted by the USFS to operate in the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area. We run only one snowcat, and our goal every day is to ski fresh tracks in powder snow. Our safety record is one of the very best in the industry, and guest empowerment is our top priority.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website!

We hope to ski with you soon!

Heads Up!
 
COVID19 update: we are very hesitant to play any role in spreading the illness. It is impossible for any passenger cabin to allow for social distancing, ours included. We will remain closed until further notice.
Vail Powder Guides has not run a trip since Monday March 2nd, primarily due to a lack of fresh snow and an abundance of sun. Now March, in order for us to return to skiing requires more than 8 inches of fresh snow with cold temps and continuing snow in the forecast. 
So, when significant snowfall does return, VPG will carefully assess the current status of the virus and will err on the side of caution when determining whether we run the trip or not. It is VERY likely that we will be shutting down operations for the rest of the season.
We will keep this bulletin updated.
Our very best,
Jenna and Ben and the VPG Crew
