Why Book a Charter Flight?

Backpacker Tours is in full swing and taking reservations for the 2021-2022 ski season. There is already a lot of pent up demand from the past year, so it’s an important time to get started on the planning. If you are looking for a fun trip to take with your family or friends, then take a look at our Steamboat and Snowmass 7 night charter packages.

Why are the chartered trips so much fun, you may ask?

Backpacker Tours normally handles your entire trip planning needs, but the charter trip goes one step further! Not only do we coordinate everything, but the charter flight makes this the most convenient trip imaginable. There are no layovers and it’s way less stressful than flying commercial.
The charter flight is direct out of Baton Rouge, so it’s close to home and you won’t have to experience the stress of commercial airfare travel delays and cancellations. This is the most convenient and easy method of travel to/from Louisiana and the mountains. There are also no luggage fees, so this flight package saves you money.

Memories are made on our charter trip! The planes are full of only other Backpacker Tours skiers when you book our Mardi Gras charter package. The party truly starts when you arrive at the Baton Rouge airport and see everyone you know. You are bound to see lots of old friends or make new friends on the flight.

With the trip being a seven night package, it gives you enough time to do everything you want at the resort without feel rushed to pack every second with an activity. Besides skiing your heart out, you can also take the family dog sledding, or on a horse drawn sleigh ride. In Steamboat there is a natural hot springs just a short ride from the slopes. This amazing spot can transport you to another world and take all of your cares away. On our Snowmass trip you can spend the day in Aspen shopping and eating at all the coolest spots! There truly is an endless amount of fun activities to choose from when in the mountains.

Customer Testimonial


"We opted for the 7 night charter flight ski package. They gave us all the real information we needed, including valuable tips. We simply told Caroline what we wanted out of the trip (activities) and type of accommodations. Everything was so well organized. We were informed, encouraged and supported throughout the planning and the trip itself. I couldn’t believe how easy it was. Thank you, Backpacker, for an amazing experience!"
