About the Company

Over the last decade, Summit County and White River National Forest has emerged from Colorado’s best kept secret to a world-class adventure destination. Superb backcountry skiing, backpacking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and Colorado’s most accessible 14,000+ ft summits await you just minutes from the glittering resort destinations of Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone. Colorado Adventure Guides offers half and full day guided tours to help you explore the deepest expanses of The County. Because we know that it’s not a good trip until it’s a round trip, trust us to deliver an experience that’s safe, educational, and fun. Colorado Adventure Guides’ core team and network of professional certified guides leverage their skills, experience, and wilderness medical training to customize tours that fit the needs and expectations of individuals and small or large groups. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the latest and greatest equipment. We’ve got you covered, with advice on how to prepare or our complete rental equipment packages to get you outfitted like an expert.


Snowshoeing Guided Tour
from $250

Exploring Summit County’s backcountry routes on pillow-soft powder in winter is scenic, peaceful, and will make you feel like you have the mountains all to yourself. Snowshoeing is easy to learn, fun for everyone, and can be a great high energy cardio workout. Take a tranquil loop around a pristine mountain meadow. Or, if you’re seeking a more challenging backcountry adventure, explore a shady canyon or embark on a heart pounding trek up a snow shrouded peak to witness spectacular winter views. Our guides know where to go—based on your preferences, weather, and snow conditions—to provide you with a safe and enjoyable snowshoeing guided tour.

Backcountry Skiing/Split Boarding
from $150

Escape the resort crowds by earning your turns on a backcountry skiing adventure in Colorado’s Summit County.  Backcountry skiing provides the opportunity to extend your ski season and experience something few skiers ever will, skiing powder in solitude. Traverse a high alpine ridgeline to a snow-covered summit—maybe even 14,265 ft Quandary Peak—and ski back to where you started. CBST Adventure’s professionally trained guides have your back. We scout out the best conditions and assess avalanche danger and other potentially dangerous conditions that may not be visible to the untrained eye.

Not an expert skier?  Never skied in the backcountry?  No problem!  If you can ski Vail’s back bowls, you can ski in our backcountry.  Our experienced and professional guides will teach uphill and downhill skiing technique, risk management, and talk you through decision-making in the backcountry.  Bring your own gear or take advantage of our rental packages to get fully equipped with alpine touring boots, skis, bindings, avalanche beacon, shovels, and probes.
