Unique spring camping/skiing expedition offered in Beartooth Mountains

Into Montana’s ever-expanding buffet of backcountry skiing adventures, Beartooth Mountain Guides is adding a unique entrée this spring.

For four days, up to eight people can tent camp three nights in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, and climb and ski “couloir ridden” peak faces above Goose Lake during the days.

“The Goose Lake area is pretty special,” said Akio Joy, guide and co-owner of BMG. “It has a variety of rolling hills, navigational circuits and also just really beautiful technical descents.”

The class is aimed at talented Montana skiers who have challenged themselves at ski areas, but are now looking to take their skills to the next level on more aggressive, remote backcountry lines. Since the area is in avalanche terrain, participants also need to pack a probe pole, beacon and shovel.
