Welcome to PPG. We are located in the West Central Mountains near McCall, Idaho. We are situated on the Payette Crest at Lick Creek Summit, adjacent to the Salmon River and the Frank Church Wilderness surrounded by the higest peaks around McCall. Our deep and consistent powder snow pack averages 10 to 12 feet per season. We love to ski powder and we get it! Come join us for a snowcat or snowmobile assisted backcountry ski adventure!
The Lick Creek Summit Yurts will be available for rent starting August 1st through the fall. We also offer backcountry mountain bike trips. Our speciality is outfitting. Let us take care of your multiday ride logistics, gear, cuisine and shuttle while you focus on pounding out miles of trail, single track, two track and roads in the Payette National Forest.
December - April
The Lick Creek Summit Yurts are ready to go by early December and we operate until April. Come join us for a powder skiing experience you'll never forget! Located in the heart of Idaho's West Central Mountains, we have over 30,000 acres of untracked powder, literally, in our backyard. Located on Lick Creek Summit (elevation 6930' ), we have two yurts, a wood fired sauna and an outhouse. From mellow burned tree glades, to the steep and deep, you'll find loads of vertical just out the door. We can accommodate your perfect backcountry ski trip, from a day to a week. We offer yurt rentals, full service guided trips and avalanche education courses.
Access to the yurts is by snowmobile and/or snowcat, enabling backcountry skiers and riders to focus on skiing untracked snow. Our snowmobiles are four stroke touring sleds equiped for two backcountry riders and their gear. Our snowcat is biodeiesel fueled and can carry all of your gear and your group, river trip style, right to our yurts. Click on the links below for more information.
