1. We're already taking reservations for the 2021-2022 winter ski season

We are seeing greater interest in travel than past years at this time. The ski resorts are planning for a record breaking winter attendance, so it’s more important than ever to start planning your trip early! Our favorite condos are already starting to fill up during popular travel times, so don’t wait or you could miss out on the trip of a lifetime.

2. Ski anywhere, anytime!

Backpacker tours can book your ski trip to any resort, at any time of the year. We are the experts in skiing and will make sure that everything is taken care of for you. Our various packages range from our own chartered flights from Baton Rouge, to packages with commercial airfare, and even giving you the option to book your own flights! Each package is customized to your wants and desires.

2. Expert Advice

One of the most important things to note is that it’s never too late to take your first trip to the mountains. Backpacker Tours has taken 3 generations of families to Colorado and beyond for over 50 years. You can trust that this will be the easiest vacation you will ever take. We will walk with you through every step of the planning process to make sure that you feel confident upon arrival. Our staff has been to the resorts and has toured almost all of the properties. We have firsthand knowledge of where you’ll stay, how far the condo is from the ski lifts, and where the closest (and best!) restaurants are located.

3. We do it all!

Backpacker Tours will also reserve all of the ski/snowboard components for you. We understand that ski trips have a lot of moving parts, and we take pride in getting everything reserved for you. From the lift tickets, to equipment rentals, or ski school lessons - you can trust that everything is handled. We also guarantee the lowest price with our Price Match Guarantee. All that you have to do is show up for your trip and have the time of your life!

4. Exclusive discounts and access to exclusive promos

When booking your ski trip with Backpacker Tours you also get exclusive discounts on ski gear and apparel at The Backpacker, as well as access to special sales events happening in our stores. We want to make sure that you are outfitted correctly to be able to handle the cold mountain weather. Being outfitted correctly is an essential part of having a good ski trip. What keeps you warm in Louisiana won’t keep you warm on the ski slopes. Backpacker Tours customers have the option to work directly with a member of our retail sales team to have a custom concierge shopping experience. These team members are well trained in all of the latest trends in ski gear and will personally see to it that you and your family have the right gear for your ski trip.

5. Get rewarded for going on vacation!

Booking your ski trip with Backpacker Tours year after year comes with not only the benefit of a great ski trip, but skiers also get entered into our Vertical Days skier referral program! The more days you ski with Backpacker Tours the more “days” you earn. Attending Backpacker events and referring friends to book their ski trip with us can also add extra days to your profile. Frequent skiers who reach the highest level can earn an Arc'teryx puffy jacket or an Arc'teryx ski jacket.

Does anything sound better than booking your next ski trip at the best price, with all the knowledge you’ll need to have fun, and receive shopping discounts?!
