Cascade Backcountry Alliance

We are an advocacy group representing the unified voice of backcountry skiers, splitboarders, and snowshoers in the Pacific Northwest. Our mission is to protect and expand backcountry access opportunities through representation and relationships with land owners and decision makers, while educating the community about relevant information and existing access opportunities.

Why Now?

Winter backcountry recreation has been increasing rapidly. With crowded access points and competing user groups, we need to have a unified voice in these matters to ensure we can continue to enjoy the backcountry. 

Our Process


We will develop relationships with land managers, ski areas, and other related organizations.


We will strive to educate the community about relevant news and access opportunities for the winter backcountry community.


We will take our understanding of access issues to identify improvements, and work with land managers to make it happen.


We will listen to the community and communicate our progress and vision.
