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 backcountry skier with the beta you needed to get out ski touring.

No longer! With Backcountry Ski Maps you'll always know how to access the best descents.

Now you can easily find all of the information you need to get out backcountry skiing in the Tahoe area with our Backcountry Ski Maps - topographical maps designed specifically for backcountry skiing and ski touring.

Every map includes detailed ascent and descent routes, and a photo and 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 backcountry ski 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 stands up to the abuses of backcountry skiing. That means when a storm comes in a day earlier than expected while you're out ski touring 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.

"Incredibly helpful map! Really helps to be able to visualize general routes and areas rather than flipping through a book or searching web pages. Having a slope angles is very helpful too when deciding a route. And the ability to import the digital maps into Avenza is priceless (though I always carry the paper one with me too)! Will continue to buy these maps if more are released."

"These maps seemed to be on the pricey side, but then I received them and I see why. They’re really more like guidebooks in map form, with lots of useful information in addition to the maps. Highly recommended."
