If you found this page you’re in luck because it means you enjoy outdoor activities and most importantly you like to ski powder and you don’t like skiing in crowds or lift lines. 

C Lazy U Ranch is set to deliver a once-in-a-lifetime backcountry skiing experience where you get to enjoy our secret stash of private powder. 


Tell Me About the Skiing

Our backcountry powder is hidden within the world-renowned C Lazy U Ranch.  The ranch is 8,500 acres but the skiable backcountry terrain comprises an approximately 700 acres of Mt. Baldy and the connector ridge between it and Windy Point.  The majority of the terrain is sun-protected north-facing slopes that hold snow well and more importantly, keep it cool and free powder for days and weeks. 

There is a small contingent of avid backcountry skiers on ranch, A.K.A. the ranch’s amazing activity guides, managers and employees.

We love to enjoy the ranch’s private powder when off duty and these two events are so we can share this amazing experience with like-minded outdoor enthusiasts – but also elevate it with professional backcountry guides for safety and a learning environment. These events are limited to 16 people total and we do not want them to be big events so we can ensure a proper guide to skier/boarder ratio. All skiing is done within a controlled environment on C Lazy U Ranch terrain.

Who Are Your Guides?

Your guides embody the essence of outdoor adventure and they all have passion for skiing backcountry lines. 

Each guide has a different love and passion for the outdoors and includes men and women, snowboarders and skiers. Collectively the team has extensive backcountry experience.

So How Do I Qualify If I Want To Attend?

It’s simple:

  • We recommend some basic knowledge and experience associated with off-piste and/or backcountry skiing.  There is intermediate and expert terrain and there are no groomed runs except for groomed access in and out of certain areas for ease of touring.      
  • You should have to have a level of fitness that is suitable for hiking or skiing at or above 8,000 feet above sea level.
  • To participate you must have (or rent) your own beacon, shovel and probe. If you do not have your own gear, Two Pines Supply will have safety equipment available to rent or buy. 
  • You must have climbing skins if you are using your own gear. Hagan Demo Skis are paired with their own set of skins, and will be available on-ranch for you to try! 
  • You must possess a desire to have fun and ski backcountry terrain.
  • No lift lines means no crowds so there is no rush and you can relax and enjoy the view, private skiing terrain.
  • We celebrate our days and look forward to many cheers and great stories by the fire in our ski lodge each night after skiing.

Can I bring my family? Is this a family friendly event or weekend? 

Absolutely, C Lazy U Ranch is a family-friendly resort! Kids and spouses are welcome to enjoy the ranch if they are not participating in the backcountry skiing activities. We offer a multitude of other activities for families to enjoy such as: Spa Services, Kid’s Club, and lots of winter activities like the Tubing Hill, Horseback riding, Snowmobiling, Cross Country Skiing, Snowshoeing and Ice Skating. There is something for everyone!

From the Horse's Mouth

Amy and her staff were amazing. Every wrangler was friendly and cared about safety. Horses were in good shape and of course loved the Jingle! Can't wait to see how the new barn will turn out.
