Are there other things I will need that are not included in the price?

Backpacker Tours will walk you through everything you need to know in order to have a successful on-mountain adventure. We help you select equipment rentals from the most convenient ski shops (delivery service available), discuss gear storage options, add trip insurance, and you'll receive in-store discounts on ski gear and apparel! We can also give recommendations on grocery delivery services, dinner and entertainment reservations.

How does Backpacker Ski Trips calculate the advertised ski prices?

All Backpacker Tours advertised package prices are per person based on an assumed group of 4 travelers per group. If you have more than 4 travelers in your group, you may see your final quoted price go down. If you have fewer than 4 travelers in your group, you may expect your per person price to go up.

Can I just purchase airfare through Backpacker Ski Trips?

Unfortunately, we are unable to sell airfare packages independently. A package must always include at least lodging before the ability to add airfare.
