Safety - qualified guides, and we exceed industry operating standards, as one of only a few operations to have a full time snow safety team, as well as 2 or 3 guides in the cat. We are also able with the snowcats to get to the top of all the mountains that we ski - this really helps, as it means that we generally have less overhead hazard, are able to better test the slopes that we are concerned about.
Huge and varied terrain - over 500 named runs (plus lots more unnamed runs), 8 main peaks, 220km of snowcat road, spread out over 20,000 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.
Separate trips for Uber Experts, experts, advanced, and intermediate skiers and riders - this means that you generally ski withpeople 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
Best Gladed skiing - One of our speacialities is glade skiing - glade maintains and keep the best snow, and provide some of the funnest skiing on the planet.
We are one of the largest cat ski operations in the world, We have 8 snowcats (6 snowcats with passenger boxes, and 2 road building cats) in the busy period we normally run 4 snowcats per day. We have 220km of snowcat roads.
Super fast cats - PB300's are the best in the business. More skiing, More runs, and less waiting.
Unmatched accommodation choice - choose from super quality 5 star condos to cheap hostels, or our social lodge options with other cat skiers.
Access - easy to get to from Spokane (2 hours). Fly into Castlegar (30minutes) or Kelowna (3.5 hours) - just minutes from Red Mountain to the snowcats on our shuttle bus, or self-drive.
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.
