Welcome to NSAA’s Backcountry Ski Tours page! Backcountry ski tours are a great (and safe) way to get out on your touring skis (think ungroomed trails, fish scales and metal edges) with a group of like-minded individuals! Meet future friends, enjoy some sweet pow, bring the dog and your thermos full of hot cocoa. BEST PART tours are completely FREE!

To support the tours program you can purchase an attractive and specially designed knit cap. They will be available at all tours, the NSAA office and the annual meeting.  All of our tours are accompanied by the Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol, who provides a measure of safety.   Many thanks for their assistance.  We look forward to skiing with you out on the trail.

Before you jump in on a tour:

  • Join NSAA* (Required) - Your donation helps support these FREE backcountry ski tours!
    • Please note that you MUST be a NSAA member to join a tour.
  • Release Form* (Required) - Bring your completed form to the meeting place the morning of the tour and give it to your leader! 
  • Any questions, first check out all the Tours tabs at the top of this page. If you still have questions, email or call Patti Phillips.
