    Thanks guys! We are planning on making a higher-quality series of videos this year relating to the important safety skills, along with

    What a great idea and a great job! Having been out with BRC several times, I know that safety is their prime concern and making this video not only for their clients but for everyone shows how much they care. Catskiing is almost the most fun you can have when you are awake--but only if you live to tell about it. Good job BRC!

    Congratulations - I've been several days with BRC and I can confirm, that this video gives a very good and realistic impression about Snow cat skiing. An image is better than every speech and if you are a SnowCat-Rookie, you really need to see this, it helps a lot to find your way in a new and unacustomed ambit and activity.
    Good on you ;) Paula and Kieren!
    you have an awesome team and great place :)

    This is a GREAT video! Having been on several cat trips (though sadly, not yet with BigRedCats), the training has always been good, yet having a video like yours will make the trip better and safer for everyone. You covered key points in 10 minutes. Everyone needs hands on practice with transceivers. Everyone needs to pay attention to the guides, and I hope a video like this can be a part of everyones training as well. We all count on each other out there!

    Have a GREAT Season!
