Backcountry skiing (US), also called off-piste (Europe) or out-of-area, is skiing in the backcountry on unmarked or unpatrolled areas either inside or outside a ski resort’s boundaries. This contrasts with alpine skiing which is typically done on groomed trails benefiting from a ski patrol.
Before you take off and explore the back country on your skis be sure and be prepared it is very important to have these tools.
Fantastic snow, comfy accommodations. We enjoyed the spa and fireplace so much – perfect after a long day of skiing.- The Thompson Family - North Carolina
