Guide Bio

A bit of an adrenalin junkie myself, I love being able to guide others to enjoy the great outdoors and adventure.

For many years the world over, mountain huts have sheltered backcountry travelers such as skiers, horse packers, and mountaineers. Keeping this tradition in mind, our mission is to provide an alternative to the traditional ski resort by providing backcountry enthusiasts access to remote skiing, over-night backcountry accommodations, safe transportation, and exceptional service without the lift lines, tracked up slopes and costs of most resorts.

Spend more time doing what you came to do: skiing or riding in the backcountry, instead of spending an entire day getting there.

High Sierra Snowcat LLC

The “ski in ski out” Hut and Snowcat concept was developed from the passion of skiing and to establish safe and affordable overnight hut lodging on the “East Side”. For many years the world over, mountain huts have sheltered backcountry travelers such as skiers and mountaineers. In Europe, hundreds of huts hang from mountainsides, and many have been in use for over a century. Likewise, mountain huts are a noble tradition in Canada and the northeast United States.

Founded in 2012 High Sierra Snowcat has been working diligently with the Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest to establish a Special Use Permit for commercial operation. Mission Provide a welcome alternative to the traditional ski resort, by providing backcountry ski enthusiast access to remote high sierra skiing, over-night backcountry accommodations, safe transportation, and exceptional service without the lift lines and tracked up powder.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
