Pre-season and post-season - we will accept expressions of interest for full cat bookings and groups of 6 or more before Christmas and after 25 Mar, but do not require a deposit until conditions are confirmed to be good to go

High Season - Jan 20 to March 13 - The most consistent conditions of the year and the most popular.  Before this time, conditions can be fantastic but the base may be lower and not all runs open.  After this time, conditions can still be great, but will become more variable with longer daylight hours.

Cancellation Insurance costs an extra $100 and provides a full refund if the group is offered to reschedule because of poor conditions, or for documented medical situation (Trip cancellation insurance is cheaper, but doesn't cover poor conditions).  Those not choosing a "refundable" ticket will not receive a refund, but will be offered a transferable 2-season rain cheque if conditions are not safely skiable.  Most people just get the regular booking, as they plan on coming back anyway.  (Note:  the $100 portion is not refunded, just the $549 portion).
Most guests to Big Red Cats do an average of 3-4 days of cat skiing with us.   Many Europeans coming will book 6-7 days straight, and some will just do one or two days combined with the resort, to keep to a budget.  
You may like to schedule a rest day or a resort-skiing day between cat skiing days - the multi-day discount still applies for weekdys.
