We love exploring the backcountry, and nearly every day someone tells us that it was the best day of skiing in their life.
Because catskiing is more enjoyable when you are with others of a similar skill level, we offer separate intermediate, advanced and expert days, and some “snowboard only” and “skier only” days as well.

Ski this lifts to warm up for cat skiing, or come cat skiing to prepare for your heli trip.
