English term or phrase: tail guide
There are 4 programs for the 2008 season:
1) The Alaskan Local - 2 runs very close to the Lodge location for $250.
2) The Full Package - 6 runs at $840 a day double-guided with a second group or **tail guide** with up to 4 skiers or snowboarders in each group. 4 day minimum.

Es geht um Skierlebnisse in Alaska

Schi- oder Bergführer, der die Gruppe hinten sichert
Explanation:
A tail guide is the last person in the group. He follows the group and makes sure that every person gets down the hill safely.

Also ich denke, dass es heisst: Es gibt entweder zwei Gruppen mit je einem Schiführer (double-guided) oder nur einen Schiführer (lead guide) für die Gruppe, dann aber noch einen Skilehrer, der die Gruppe hinten sichert (tail guide).
