Where We Ski
Ski touring and splitboarding at the Hideout is something you will never forget. Expect our staff to learn about your goals, inquire about your riding experience, and brainstorm tailored expeditions suitable for your riding ability. These daily expeditions can be short and sweet, keeping the lodge in plain view, or full day excursions that take you to places where no photo will do justice. With adventures for guests of all levels, it’s our intention to provide a safe and comfortable space for first timers and seasoned pros alike. For intermediate to expert level riders, we suggest adding our heli-assisted ski or splitboard tour to the Sierra Buttes. We’ve also secured discounted rates next door at Kirkwood Resort so you can ride Lake Tahoe’s steepest and deepest commercial runs before or after your stay at Hideout Lodge.
Heli-Assisted Tours to the Sierra Buttes
Sierra Buttes Line with Cliff Drop
Our staff is committed to the safety of our guests. Upon arrival, each guest will receive state-of-the-art safety equipment including a 2-way radio, avalanche beacon, probe, snow shovel, backpack, and optional airbag backpack. In addition, the group will gather for a thorough avalanche safety orientation. While touring at the lodge is self-guided, we do have guides on staff that are certified by the American Mountain Guide Association, are Wilderness First Responders, and keep daily record of snow stability and conditions at all times. Our Sierra Buttes tour is guided by some of the industry’s best.
With safety at the center of our core values, we’ve built what we refer to as a Living Itinerary. All activities are subject to weather and snowpack stability as we want our guests to be safe at all times. To prepare for days with poor weather, we’ve added comforting amenities such as an outdoor barrel sauna and wood hot tub.
