Not your typical resort experience.

Because places worth visiting are worth the effort it takes to get there.

Sidecountry Basics

Brackett Basin and Burnt Mountain offer over 650 acres of backcountry-style glades, including steeps, chutes, and cliffs, all comprising one of the most unique skiing adventures anywhere. It's probably unlike anything you've experienced before on the East Coast, so before you set out, here are some tips to help keep you safe on your adventure.
