Bitterroot Backcountry Ski Guides

Bitterroot Backcountry Ski Guides is a permittee on the Bitterroot National Forest offering guided backcountry ski trips to many fine locations throughout the Bitterroot Range of the Rocky Mountains. John Lehrman, lead guide and owner of the Downing Mountain Lodge, has 20 years experience skiing in the Bitterroot Mountains of Western Montana and hold a Level 2 backcountry guide certification from the Professional Ski Instructors Association, Northern Region, a level 3 avalanche forecasters certification from AAI in Jackson Hole, and is a Wilderness First Responder. Jenny Callahan and Blake Votilla serve as additional guides as well, both with many years experience backcountry skiing in the Bitterroots.

With trips ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced, the Bitterroot Backcountry guides team will show you a great time in the mountains while focusing on the safety and education of ourĀ  skiing friends while in the mountains. We offer a unique style of guest development where we push our team to develop a camaraderie that allows the guest to develop their own skills, comfort in the mountains, and a balance of leading our guests and following their desires. Your trip with BBSG will be memorable and you will gain experience at a rapid pace allowing you to feel great about your guided day as well as increasing your ability to operate self guided.

Many first time guests to Downing Mountain Lodge request guide service. The guided group can expect to learn how to ski the terrain at DML in a way that would otherwise take many years to learn. One day of guiding at DML will open up the possibilities that the mountain has to offer and make the dangers more approachable and manageable and enhance the guests experience. We look forward to backcountry ski guiding you and working hard to optimize your day in the mountains of Western Montana.
