10 Reasons to Choose

  • Safety

    We hand-select our team of highly experienced professional ski guides. Each cat will have one lead and one trail guide dedicated to their group's safety. We also have a snow safety team out each day to analyze conditions. Our guide team is trained professionally in:

    • Avalanche hazard evaluation & management
    • Weather and snow analysis
    • Emergency first aid

    All guests will complete both online and on-site training. We provide all our guests with high-quality backcountry equipment (backpack, shovel, probe, Mammut Barryvox transceiver) for the day.

  • Different trip levels for different abilities
    Uber Experts, experts, advanced, and intermediate skiers and riders

    This means that you generally ski with people going at the same speed: experts get the super steeps, pillows, and cliffs they enjoy, while intermediates can cruise along in bowls and spaced trees, without performance anxiety

  • Easy access

    Access is as quick and easy as it gets! It is about a 25-30 minute highway drive from Red Mountain Resort to our staging area where we meet for the  daily avalanche training. From there it is only 40 minutes to the top of the first run!

  • Huge and varied terrain

    Over 700 named runs, 8 peaks, 220km of snowcat road, spread out over 200,000 acres of terrain. The area is big - even for guides that are out skiing every day - it takes about 2 years to ski all the runs.

  • The BEST gladed skiing

    One of our specialities is glade skiing. Glades have some of the best snow quality and make for some of the best skiing on the planet!

  • Large Operation
    We are one of the largest cat ski operations in the world, We have 10 snowcats (6 snowcats with passenger boxes, and 2 road building cats) in the busy period we normally run 5 snowcats per day. We have 220km of snowcat roads
  • Unmatched accommodation choice
    Choose from super quality 5 star condos, 5 star hotels, Boutique Lodges, to cheap hostels, or our social lodge options with other cat skiers.
  • Flexibility
    Book one day, six days, or alternate with resort skiing. Because you're staying right at a world-class ski resort, you can mix your cat skiing with resort days, have some group members cat ski while others are at the resort
  • Great value
    We have the best price and quality mix, and we DO provide rain cheques and resort options, so you're guaranteed to ski or ride.
  • Ski with the family

    We allow teens aged 12yrs and up when skiing with a parent/guardian.
