What is Catskiing, Cat-skiing, cat skiing, or CAT Skiing?
However you spell it, the sport is addictive. Catskiing began almost 40 years ago in Canada and is still growing fast. From the Selkirk Wilderness came a brilliant idea to use a ski hill grooming machine to access backcountry skiing. And it has never been more popular.
Never the same run twice. Always epic. A day catskiing is a Very Good Day.
Your Catskiing Day
On the way up, excitement builds as you climb each peak. On the way down, you can carve your own mark on the perfect untouched playground. Catch your breath and do it again. Try to stop smiling.
A typical run of 2000 ft. vertical can take about 20 minutes to ascend in the snow cat. That’s about the same time it takes to descend again on skis. The heated passenger cab is comfortable and quiet and the snowcat is usually waiting at the bottom when you arrive.
You’ll also enjoy the social aspect of the snowcat ride – everyone is stoked about their last few turns, tumbles, or tail grabs and planning the next run.
Today, better machines mean more comfort and more room. Better technology means reliable access to more and better terrain. You can check out our big red cats here and read more.
