OUR TERRAIN

After 18 continuous years of development and opening more terrain each year - we are one of the biggest cat operations in the world. We can ski on all aspects of all of our mountains which means that we can link up runs better with less time in the snowcat. Our terrain is also protected from wind in many areas that we ski.

Some of the key features of our terrain are:

  • 8 Main Mountains + numerous ridges and sub-peaks
  • Over 700 named runs
  • 40% Expert, 40% Advanced, and 20% Intermediate Terrain
  • 220km of Snowcat Roads 
  • 47 drainages with 5-15 runs in each
  • Altitude Range 7300 ft - 4,000ft  (Most runs are at between 1500m - 2200m)
  • Average Run Length: 1,00-1,400 vertical ft
  • 20,000 Acres of Terrain
  • Longest Run: 1,800 vertical ft
We do not have any glaciated terrain or any terrain that we would call true alpine terrain. However, we do have some of the best glade skiing in the world. We believe that this type of skiing is the most rewarding because the snow quality is always better as the snow quality is far less affected by wind and sun.  Also it means that we can often ski steeper lines allowing us to play with terrain features. Once people have tried this type of powder skiing/riding there is no going back…
