Itinerary

Day 1: Little Cottonwood Canyon Powder

Day 2: Geothermal Hot Springs & Ice Castles

A visit to the seasonal Midway Ice Castles (25 million pounds of ice!). Therapeutic soak in a one-of-a-kind, 90-96 degree, geothermal spring lodged inside a limestone crater which also hosts the only warm scuba diving destination in the Continental US.

Day 3: Little Cottonwood Canyon Powder

Heading out early, we drive into neighboring Big Cottonwood Canyon, which also boasts astronomical snowfalls, and ski & ride the slopes of Brighton Ski Resort.

 

Day 5: Snowmobiling the Wasatch Range

Driving to the eastern flank of the Wasatch Range, we will each have a snowmobile as well as miles of trails at our disposal for half a day in what may be Utah's most picturesque state park. Exploring Park City in the evening.

                                                                   

Day 6: Big Cottonwood Canyon Powder 

Skiing/Snowboarding at Solitude Mountain Resort, which may very well be the most underrated of the 4 ski resorts located within the infamous Cottonwood Canyons.

 

Day 7: Open Ski Resort Selection

After exploring what the ski resorts in Little and Big Cottonwood Canyons have to offer, we either pick our favorite resort of the 4 or head over to Park City to ski & ride some new terrain (Deer Valley or Park City Mountain Resort).

 

Day 8: Park City Relaxation

Free day for strolling the historic streets of Park City or the Olympic Park, home of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Anyone who hasn't had their fill of adventure has the option for outdoor activities including Guided Backcountry Skiing, Ice Climbing, Ice Fishing or Snowshoeing.

TESTIMONIALS

"Olivier’s Trails is a truly unique travel experience. Olivier's passion for the outdoors and adventure is reflected in his thoughtfully crafted itineraries. From the local culinary experiences, thrill inducing activities, to details such as timing to catch the sunset at some of the most magnificent peaks in the world, Olivier’s attention to detail and overall preparation is reflected in the day to day of his trips... The 10 day European Alps ski trip Olivier crafted is one I’ll never forget. Highly recommend to those looking to experience the world through the lens of the outdoors."

"Upon my return, I was asked... How was your trip? and my response was... An adventure of a lifetime! Olivier is truly dedicated to what he does and his intense enthusiasm shines through. He had planned an adventure-packed, scenic trip that included everything from rock climbing to whitewater rafting and hot spring sunsets in the Pacific Northwest that I will always treasure. Everyday the group trekked through new trails, saw amazing views and caught incredibly picturesque sunrises/sunsets. Olivier is passionate about what he does and you cannot go wrong joining him on his trails!"

Dominika

"Olivier organizes thorough itineraries and takes the hassle of planning, logistics and research away so you just need to fly to your destination and enjoy your time. He'll take you off the beaten path and show you an active vacation in a way you most likely haven't experienced before, all while sharing a ton of knowledge with the group throughout the adventure. Each day is packed with adrenaline-filled activities and after your tour is over, you will surely be coming back for more. Highly recommended!"

"Olivier provided the most unique and adventurous way to enjoy the beauty Costa Rica has to offer. Rather than going on the typical tourist excursions, we were immersed into the local atmosphere in every way possible. From surfing, to rappelling waterfalls, each and everyday was its own extraordinary adventure.

Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful experience. I truly felt I was living my best life in Costa Rica!

PURA VIDA"
