Breck Guides Information

What will the lesson be like?

The Breck Guides program at Breck allows you to create a customized experience that will change the way you look at the mountain. Special guides are available to give you the knowledge and confidence you need to successfully traverse backcountry and advanced alpine environments. If you’ve ever wanted to find the best snow on the slopes, the Breck guide program is a surefire way to teach you how to safely travel in backcountry terrain and find untouched snow on a powder day.

Explore the best trails at Breck with your own private guide, plus get on the mountain earlier by loading the chairlift before the public. Create your own experience by choosing the skills and terrain you'll learn that day; from the basics of avalanche awareness, to the high alpine travel and avalanche rescue, your Breck Guide will train you to enjoy the mountain safely. Each participant will carry his/her own pack with a beacon, shovel, and probe and your private guide will cater to the needs of your group.

Group sizes are limited to a maximum of 6 participants per guide. The minimum skiing/riding level is a PSIA/AASI Level 8 (can ski or ride black diamond terrain confidently)

Want more information on the Breck Guides Program? We interviewed Randy Brooks on the Breckenridge Ski and Ride team to get more insight into the new offering, and to understand his favorite aspects of the Breck Guide program. Check it out on the Breck Blog.
