10 Reasons to Choose

  • Safety

    We hand-select our team of highly-experienced, professional ski guides. Each cat will have one lead and one trail guide dedicated to their group's safety. We also have a snow safety team out each day to analyze conditions. Our guide team is trained professionally in:

    • Avalanche hazard evaluation & management
    • Weather and snow analysis
    • Emergency first aid

    All guests will complete both online and on-site training. We provide all our guests with high-quality backcountry equipment (backpack, shovel, probe, and Mammut Barryvox transceiver) for the day.

  • Different trip levels for different abilities
    Uber Experts, Experts, Advanced, and Intermediate skiers and riders

    This means that you generally ski with people 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.

  • Easy access

    Access to our terrain is as quick and easy as it gets! It is about a 25-30 minute highway drive from RED Mountain Resort to our Staging Area, where we meet for daily avalanche training. From there it is only 40 minutes to the top of the first run!

  • Huge and varied terrain

    Over 700 named runs, 8 peaks, and 220 km of snowcat roads spread out over 200,000 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!

  • The BEST gladed skiing

    One of our specialties is glade skiing. Glades have some of the best snow quality and make for some of the greatest skiing on the planet!

  • Large operation

    Big Red Cats is one of the largest cat ski operations in the world! We have 10 snowcats (6 snowcats with passenger boxes and a few road-building cats) and in the busy period, we normally run 5 snowcats per day. 

  • Unmatched accommodation choice

    Choose from high-quality 5-star condos, 5-star hotels, and boutique lodges, or take advantage of budget-friendly hostels and our social, shared lodge options!

  • Flexibility

    Book one day, six days, or alternate with resort skiing.  Why not take advantage of a world-class ski resort and mix up your cat skiing with resort days!  Members of your group can cat ski while others enjoy RED Mtn. Resort.

  • Great value

    We have the best mix of price and quality and we also provide rain check and resort options, so you're guaranteed to ski or ride.

  • Ski with the family

    We allow teens aged 12 years and up when skiing with a parent or guardian.
