"Another great trip to Steamboat Springs with Backpacker Tours. The "sneaux" was fantastic, which made the skiing awesome. We love the ease of the charter flight direct from baton Rouge, along with our lovely property at Trailhead Lodge equipped with game room and hot tubs. Our boys thoroughly enjoy the large Steamboat mountain. Thanks Backpacker Tours for all the organization and details to make the trip smooth and easy for a great family vacation."

"We loved our Backpacker ski trip, the accommodations were great and they took care of everything!

We had some non-skiers in our group as well, and they enjoyed all of the attractions in beautiful Steamboat. We did a snow shoe hike, visited the natural hot springs, and enjoyed exploring the quaint town. Everyone in Steamboat was extremely friendly, from the shuttle driver to the ski staff."

"Take the stress out of planning your vacation! Backpacker Tours takes care of flights, accommodations, lift tickets, transportation...all you do is pick your location! One of the best and most fun ski trips I've taken in years. Highly recommend using Backpacker Tours for your next trip!
