Guided Hiking with Vail Powder Guides

Hike with us in our ski terrain!

After making requests of the USFS for 11 years, Vail Powder Guides was granted user days for hiking in our ski terrain. Our allies at the White River National Forest have permitted us to run guided trail and dispersed hiking trips up Wilder Gulch, Wingle Ridge, Machine Gun Ridge, and Ptarmigan Hill. If you are interested in hiking in our pristine, breathtaking terrain please call us at 719-486-6266 to set up a day with us!


During the upcoming 2021-22 season, Vail Powder Guides will continue to offer powder skiing to intact buyouts of our snowcat.
We are booked for the upcoming powder season.
Please check back as we may post potential openings here.
We ask that everyone arrive vaccinated against COVID.
If anyone scheduled to ski with us is experiencing any symptoms of sick, please stay home. We strongly recommend mask wearing. We will be riding in a breezy, well heated, snowcat cabin and masks will be encouraged at all times-except while making powder turns.
For more information about these precautions or Vail Powder Guides' upcoming season and reservations, please email us at or call us at 719-486-6
