You're in Tahoe, the stoke is high, the conditions are perfect...

...and you're stuck waiting in a lift line to ski groomers and bumps because you couldn't find a local with the beta you needed to get into the backcountry.

No longer! Here at Backcountry Ski Maps we want to make this scenario a thing of the past.

Our maps are specifically designed to make it easier to find all the information you need to get out touring in the Tahoe area (and we have plans to add more zones soon)! That's why each of our maps is a topographic map and a guidebook rolled into one.

Every map includes detailed ascent and descent routes, photos, and a text guide to the best lines, which means that just one source of beta can easily get you to secret stashes you had only heard whispers of. We highlight the most classic lines, help you find the easiest approaches, and reveal the biggest potential dangers and challenges so you can spend less time searching for information and more time skiing!

Get Home Safely

Get Home Safely

All of our maps are printed on waterproof, tear-resistant paper. That means when a storm comes in a day earlier than expected and you're stuck out in the Desolation Wilderness, you'll still have no problem finding your way home - even if your cell phone has long-since run out of juice.
