We've Been There

For over 50 years, we have brought over 10 thousand skiers to the mountains. We have first-hand experience of the resorts and have tons of feedback to help you decide where to stay. You can rest easy knowing your trip is in our hands. We do the planning so you can have fun!

Backpacker Ski Week

Mardi Gras is the perfect week for Louisiana skiers to hit the slopes. We offer a few types of packages to help you get there. This year, we are going back to Steamboat Springs and Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. We will host an apres ski party for the group to get together one night in each resort.

Our 7 night charter trip is our favorite Mardi Gras package. Travel on a direct flight to either Steamboat or Aspen Snowmass with only other Backpacker Tours skiers. This is the quickest way to get to the slopes from Louisiana. Can you imagine anything more fun?

"Best trip ever with the kids. Perfect location to restaurants, ski lifts, and activities. The Backpacker did an incredible job with preparation, education, and coordination with all aspects of the trip. I can't think of any improvements to be made!"

The Bernard Group

"I have done the Mardi Gras Trip where transportation is included, and I just did this trip where I planned the travel accommodations myself. I will definitely have y'all do the travel from now on. That charter flight is the way to go for sure! The Backpacker is an amazing company / outfitter / store and Caroline is the best ever! Love y'all!"
