About Cat Skiing

Cat-skiing is perfect for those interested in guided sidecountry and backcountry powder skiing, but who don’t have the budget for heli-skiing or prefer to stay on the ground to pursue powder. Additionally, in destinations where heli-skiing isn’t an option or a snow storm prevents the helicopters from flying, cat-skiing is an excellent alternative.

Through Ski.com, you can book a couple seats or we can reserve the whole snowcat if you have a group of people who want to ski together. Some snowcats are enclosed to keep riders sheltered from the elements, while others feature open-air cabins. Either way, all snowcats offer brag-worthy experiences and long-lasting memories. Most operators provide guests with 12,000 vertical feet of untracked powder skiing and up to a dozen runs in one day. Like heli-skiing, skiers and riders interested in cat-skiing should be comfortable on un-groomed terrain.
