The guided tours will explore terrain in Diamond Peak’s Eagle Bowl where participants can safely gain confidence in a backcountry setting while checking out more of what the mountain has to offer. Guests will have the opportunity to learn about avalanche hazards and techniques for avoiding them by tour guide, rescue professional, wilderness first responder and long-time skier, Brennan Lagasse.

The fun continues through Sunday with events including the Ullr Games, Kids Obstacle Course, Diamond Peak Jiblet, and ski races. Diamond Peak reminds event attendees to come dressed in the best Ullr attire as the event is named for the Scandinavian god of winter and snow, who is widely regarded as the patron saint of skiers.
