Specializing in heli skiing and cat skiing, Untracked Guides is your source for news, articles, and publications dedicated to backcountry powder skiing.
Untracked Guides was founded in 2006 by heli and cat skiing enthusiasts who saw an unmet need for a guide book to backcountry skiing. In 2006, Untracked Guides published the first ever guide to heli skiing and cat skiing operations worldwide. This book, titled: Dream Season: Worldwide Guide to Heli & Cat Skiing/Boarding brought backcountry ski operations to the fingertips of thousands around the world.
In the fall of 2007, the Untracked Guide to Backcountry Skiing and Snowboarding was released as an updated version of Dream Season.

“A comprehensive overview is exactly what this book achieves. After an introduction and tips to planning a heli ski trip, the book offers four chapters of first-hand experiences in New Zealand, Russia, British Columbia and Colorado. The final eight chapters consist of reviews of heli ski and cat ski destinations from the Himalayas, Europe, Greenland, New Zealand, and the Americas.”

“If you like this month’s heli guide, you’ll love Dream Season: A Worldwide Guide to Heli and Cat Skiing. This book, co-authored by Bill Wanrooy and Warren Miller celluoid hero Chris Anthony, contains info on every single operation on the planet including operations in out-of-the-way locations like Russia and Turkey. As a bonus, the “Firsthand Experience” chapters at the front of the guide feature accounts of actual experiences including two by former Freeskier Editor-at-Large Patrick Crawford.”

“Sure all the info is available online now, if you have several years to find it, but it’s a lot simpler to start your research with a good old-fashioned reference book in your hands. Dream Season includes several first-person accounts to get you wondering why some people’s jobs (like ski writers) are better than yours, and then breaks the world’s powder supply up into quick looks at more than 100 heli and cat operations around the globe. Listings from Alaska, Canada, Europe, Greenland, Himalayas, New Zealand, South America and Western U.S. offer basic but useful descriptions and facts.”
