NSAA Backcountry Tours takes skiers on outdoor adventures
Get out your touring skis for a great and safe ski. You will experience ungroomed trails using fish-scales and metal-edge skis with a group of like-minded individuals! NSAA’s Backcountry Tours program is one of the perks of membership — only NSAA members can participate (join here). Meet future friends, enjoy some sweet powder, bring the dog and thermos full of hot cocoa. All of our tours feature the Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol, a valued partner in keeping all skiers safe!
Join us in the backcountry for the 2022-23 season
Based on the results of the past couple of seasons for tour sign up, attendance, and the size of the waitlist, we are trying something different this season. The tour schedule will be listed below for you to read about the tour specifics, dates, descriptions, etc as of October 1st. However; we won’t have the registration open for a tour until two weeks ahead of time. We’ll remind members of the date that a given tour registration will open. Registration will then be on a first come first serve basis. Hopefully, this will help with the issues experienced these last few seasons of tours being pre-booked early in the season before most members know to look at the schedule and then having them fill up with folks who can’t make it later.
By having the tour registration open two weeks before the tour date, the tour leads will have a better idea of weather and snow conditions for the scheduled tour and can make any changes before registration opens. Tour registrants will then be contacted with meet up time and location by the tour leads a few days before the tour.
