Join like-minded skiers for a discounted powder ski tour every other Wednesday.

For little more than the price of a Sun Valley lift ticket, you can enjoy ski touring with a skilled guide intimately familiar with the terrain and conditions! The Powder Patrol is a great way to join a group of like-minded powder enthusiasts at a discounted rate. 

The first Wednesday of each month, the Powder Patrol will be Galena Summit. Conveniently located 30 minutes from Sun Valley and Ketchum, this area provides reliable snow conditions and easily-accessible terrain for all abilities.

The third Wednesday of each month, we’ll explore Banner Summit at the northern end of the Sawtooth Range. Offering some of Idaho’s most consistent powder conditions, Banner is located 2.5 hours from Boise and 1.5 hours from Sun Valley.

Join our Powder Patrol and ski untracked snow away from the crowds!
