We will tour the DRT (Donner Rim Trail) in Johnson Canyon. In addition I help make sure you are prepared for the back country. Have all the proper gear before we go out, days in advance in case any necessities are needed. We can go over skinning techniques, angles of climb and snow safety to make sure we are aware of the conditions that we are facing that day. Then the fun comes, climb up our desired destination and have fun sliding down!
I have been in the Truckee Area over five years now. Have explored and hiked in both summer and winter all along the North Shores of Tahoe and Truckee areas. Have been in the industry for 10 years and can provide extra help carrying items, deciding how much water food to bring, proper footwear/gear, and some general knowledge about the local area.
Johnson Canyon, right outside of beautiful downtown Truckee, below the Tahoe-Donner neighborhood. Easy 5 minute drive on 80 from the center of town.
