The full Monty


Steep and Deep

Escape the crowded ski hills and experience the quiet, undisturbed calm of drifting down a Canadian mountain that seems as if it’s begging you to cut through its deep powder. The advantage of Catskiing/boarding is that you will be riding fantastic back country slopes. Our reliable and versatile snowcats enables us to take you to some of the most challenging and fresh mountain runs. Best of all our snowcats can climb in almost any type of weather versus some of the flying limitations associated with heli-skiing. Other advantages of Catskiing are: the ability to leave personal items on the cat such as extra clothing, being able to warm up in the heated cat between runs while meeting and socializing with people from all over the globe.

Catskiing can be enjoyed by both powder veterans and first time back country skier/snowboarder. Terrain is predominately glade tree skiing with occasional tree bands leading into open chutes suitable for advanced intermediate to advanced type skier or boarder. There is a lead guide who navigates the line down the mountain and a tail guide who points out the best lines and ensures that the group descends safely. Depending on the group and conditions of the day, you can expect to get 8-10 runs, which is approximately 10,000-12,000 vertical for the day. Each of our three cats are fully heated and hold twelve people. Invite eleven friends or family and book the entire state-of-the-art cat. You will get the feeling on the mountain that you are the first person ever to ski this terrain. If you are tired it is always an option to sit out a run in the cat, up front with the driver.

Your trip includes: a full day of Catskiing, use of our avalanche transceivers, and a hearty lunch that is served with a view, in the cat on poor weather days and outside on nice days. Snacks are always available between runs. Extra charges include: transfer to and from our Lodge which is a 20 minute drive, Fat ski rentals (boots and poles not included) and gratuities. If you do not have your own transportation, we can arrange it for you at an additional charge.

Skiable terrain is dependent upon current weather conditions, group ability and safety. As with any climate controlled activity some alterations to daily plans may be necessary to provide the safest experience possible for that days conditions. All of our guides are in constant contact with the office by way of radio and have Avalanche & First Aid training. They strive to offer a professional, yet fun atmosphere.
