6. Ruby Mountains Heli Experience

Spend your day exploring the backcountry with options ranging from wide-open bowls and mellow trees to some of the steepest snowcat-accessed terrain in all of North America. Given the amount of north-facing terrain and perfectly spaced trees, guides can sniff out untracked snow weeks after a legendary Lake Tahoe dump, and the stable Sierra snowpack allows you to ski and ride aggressive slopes soon after a storm cycle.

8. Jones Pass Guides
