Skiing California’s High Sierra with Ski Mountaineer John Morrison

California’s High Sierra offers some of the most incredible ski descents in the lower 48. With a pair of AT skis, skins and a little motivation, you too can experience the thrill of dropping in and linking turns for thousands of vertical feet. John Morrison is one of the most accomplished ski mountaineers in the Sierra. To discuss Tahoe’s local backcountry terrain with such an accomplished ski mountaineer doesn’t come along often. Come to Tahoe Mountain Sports on December 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. for a very special event and join other backcountry enthusiasts for a glimpse into skiing off CA’s highest mountains…A fun night for all!

*This event has reached its maximum capacity! If you’d still like to join us, feel free to stop by, but you will be limited to standing room only.

John Morrison shreds. Waves, singletrack, KT 22, High Sierra couloirs, grand Alaska peaks and pretty much anything in front of him. You usually don’t hear the details, but many mountain adventurers know what’s going on and get inspired by just the thought: “I wonder what J.M. and friends are doing this weekend?” In recent years, John skied from the highest ski-able point on all of California’s 14,000-foot mountains and many of the state’s 13’ers, often nailing more than one ski descent in a day. Learn more about John on his website:

To create the best, most intimate setting, Tahoe Mountain Sports is limiting the attendance to 40. This event is free and open to the public; however spaces must be reserved in advance.. Food and beverages will be available for all attendees.

“I love big days, adventuring in the mountains with friends. Bonds created between partners forced into the moment with each other through intense outdoor experiences last forever.” –John
