Why Book the Charter Ski Experience?


Backpacker Tours is in full swing and taking reservations for the 2022-2023 ski season. We are seeing high demand because people are ready to travel again, so it’s an important time to get started on the planning. If you are looking for a fun & easy trip to take with your family or friends, then take a look at our Steamboat and Snowmass 7 night charter packages at Mardi Gras.

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

 Backpacker Tours normally handles your entire ski trip planning needs, like your lodging, lift tickets, equipment rentals and lessons.  However, the charter trip goes one step further! Not only do we coordinate everything, but the charter flight included makes this the most convenient way to travel. The flight is direct from BTR so there are no layovers.  It’s super easy!  We all know the pains of flying commercial with the continuous delays and cancellations, so this is way less stressful.

Traveling to the small ski towns of Steamboat and Aspen Snowmass with a nonstop flight is not typical when flying out of Louisiana.  Because the charter flight is direct out of Baton Rouge it makes your travel day quicker and easier.   Winter travel can be hectic due to snowy winter storms, so when flying direct you don’t have to worry.  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 excited Backpacker Tours skiers who can’t wait to get to the mountains. The party truly starts when you arrive at the Baton Rouge airport and see everyone you know. The energy is magnetic!  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 would want at the resort.  You won’t 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 also a natural hot springs just a short ride from the ski area. 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 or eating at all of the coolest spots! There truly is an endless amount of fun activities to choose from when in the mountains.

If you give Backpacker Tours the chance to take care of your vacation planning it will be the easiest trip you've ever taken.  Our staff has been to the resorts and toured almost all of the properties.  We have firsthand knowledge of where you’ll stay, how far it is from the ski lifts & where the closest restaurants are located.  Backpacker Tours can reserve your airfare, ground transportation, lodging, lift tickets, equipment rentals and ski school lessons.  We guarantee the lowest price with our Price Match Guarantee.  All that you have to do is show up at the airport and have the time of your life!
