Welcome to Vermont Backcountry Snowboaring Tours! Get out & earn some turns this winter!

Some people want you to think that snowboarding is about big air, big resorts and MTV, and that you have to pay money to ride. Snowboarding can be free, and no resorts or crowds are required. Snowboarding began as a free sport where ALL riders worked for their runs, and now it has come full circle. There are new places with untracked snow waiting for you to discover them. Join us.


Our team has been snowboarding for almost 20 years, and have spent much of the last 10 years "off-piste", exploring the Vermont hills for hidden jewels of natural terrain and real snow.

VBST is Vermont's only backcountry guiding service by snowboarders for snowboarders. We're a group of riders who want to share the wilder side of the Green Mountains with others, showing them how to find "the goods" safely. Don't make the mistake of "winging it" on your first journey into the backcountry - getting lost or hurt could mean significant rescue expenses (which VT law states you MUST pay) or worse!


Whether you're just visiting Vermont and don't know where anything is, or you've lived here a while now and want to check out those runs you've heard the tight-lipped locals mumbling about, we'd love to have you join us for one of our tours, clinics or day-trips. We'll show you the way to a purer riding experience that will have you looking differently at every mountain you see.
