MYSTERY TRIP

GUIDED SKI & SPLITBOARD EXPEDITION

An idea conceived many moons ago is finally becoming a reality. In February 2020, we are launching the first in our series of Mystery Trips. The concept is simple: We plan a mega ski/splitboard adventure; You don’t know a thing about where you’re going or what we’ve got in store for you until you get there. Lots of unknowns, lots of surprises, and that’s just the idea. What you are guaranteed is an adventure like none other. Each Mystery Trip will happen only once…except for the ones that end up being so rad that they earn a spot on our list of regular offerings.

We communicate where you need to be and when (above - NOT your final destination), packing needs/recommendations, but not much more than that. If we disclosed the finer details, it wouldn’t be a mystery!
