Skiing and Riding

at Hideout Lodge

Where We Ski

Ski touring and splitboarding at Hideout Lodge 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. 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.

Hideout Lodge Backcountry

Step out, gear up, and go. Hideout Lodge has backcountry terrain that will quench your thirst for powder. The nearest slopes directly next to the lodge are easily accessible for daily tours and vertical terrain options vary between 700-1,500 ft.

Iron Mountain

An abandoned Ski Resort turned snowmobile and ski park. Iron Mountain is accessible by snowmobile or a short shuttle ride.

Kirkwood Resort

Kirkwood Ski Resort has the highest base elevation of any resort in Lake Tahoe and consistently receives the most snowfall in the area. We encourage you to spend a day at the resort before or after your stay at Hideout Lodge.


Pacific North Helicopters and Hideout Lodge have partnered up to introduce unique and exclusive offerings to Lake Tahoe’s winter community.


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 a record of snow stability and conditions at all times.


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 a cedar hot tub.
