We are booked for the upcoming 2020-2021 powder season.

We prefer that all guests arrive vaccinated with the COVID (and FLU) vaccine. In addition to being shut down in 2020 because of COVID, VPG was shut down due to the H1N1 flu virus about 10 years ago. Please arrive vaccinated and healthy so that the other guests, our staff, and our business can stay healthy.

Our price for 2021-2022 is $6400.00 per buyout, with a maximum of 8 people. Please call with any questions, 719-486-6266.

Included in the price: A day with Vail Powder Guides includes a FULL day of guided, backcountry powder skiing, free use of our powder-specific skis or snowboards , customer-centered guiding services, and an efficient and tasty lunch. We operate when conditions provide soft powder and fresh tracks. We ski 4000 acres of terrain on all aspects on the compass with open bowls, treed glades, and steeper, tighter tree skiing. We are an independently owned small business, completely unsupported and separate from nearby ski resorts. VPG guides are all about skiing as much as we can every day. On great days we can easily log 10-12 powder runs that average about 1000 ft in vertical(1200ft during better snow years). Most of our drop-offs are above timberline at 12,000 feet, granting us amazing 360′ views on sunny days. Smaller, intact groups will promote greater mobility around our terrain, and will give our skiers and riders more powder turns.

Deposit/Cancellation Policy

A $2000.00 deposit is required at the time the reservation is placed.

If you cancel your reservation:

You must cancel your reservation more than 30 days prior to your reservation date in order to receive a refund from your deposit. If you cancel within 30 days, you will lose your entire deposit.

If we cancel your reservation:

VPG has higher standards for snow conditions than many of our competitors. Therefore, we may cancel your trip due to unsafe or undesirable snow conditions (i.e. breakable wind and/or sun crust). In that case, we will refund your deposit. VPG retains the right to refund your deposit up to 30 days after the scheduled date of your trip.
