Backpacker Ski Week

When and Where Are We Going?

Backpacker Tours has been sending Louisiana skiers to the slopes for Mardi Gras since the 1970's. It's the perfect week to get out of town and travel with all of your friends! We have packages to suit any budget.

This season Backpacker Ski Week will be in Steamboat and Aspen Snowmass. The best way to experience Backpacker Ski Week is on our 7 night charter trip. This is the easiest way to travel because the flight is direct and the plane is full of only other Backpacker skiers! If this trip isn't for you we can also offer one of our Essential Packages at the dates of your choosing.

We will also host an Après Ski Party in each location for the group one night to get together during the week. It's a fun afternoon to swap ski stories and celebrate with friends.
