Gorgeous vistas, deep dry powder and cozy mountain lodges add up to an unforgettable ski trip, but catskiing in Canada has a lot more to offer too. Snowcat skiing is perfect for skiers and snowboarders that want to experience all the extreme terrain and wide open spaces that Canada has to offer, but at a much more affordable price than heliskiing, and of course, in a much more laid-back travel style, without all the hassles of heliskiing or the crowds of resort skiing.
No matter where you choose to go snowcat skiing or snowboarding, you can almost guarantee that you’ll get the most vertical for your money. Because snowcats don’t have to be “grounded” for bad weather days like helicopters may, and because it’s much more economical for snowcat operators to provide you with a full day’s worth of skiing, you’ll have more time on the slopes and less time waiting for a ride or sitting out bad weather.
Snowcat skiing has long been thought of as the “little brother” to heliskiing, but although heliskiing has lots of great advantages, there are also some excellent reasons to choose snowcat skiing instead even beyond just saving money. For those eco-conscious skiers and boarders, snowcat skiing has a lesser impact on the environment than a helicopter does. It’s also known for offering a more relaxed travel experience, starting from the beginning of your day, when you don’t have to worry about the long list of safety rules for riding in a helicopter, to just the cozy, relaxed trips up the hill between runs where you can enjoy snacks, warm drinks, and a little conversation or music instead of listening to the roar of a helicopter.
There’s no place like Canada for catskiing. From the cozy and luxurious lodges, to
the well-developed catskiing tenures and of course, the epic terrain, cat skiing in Canada is sure to be the trip of a lifetime. The catski trip operators of Canada are also known to be some of the best in the business, with decades of experience developing the best routes they offer the highest level of service and are the best choice for anyone that is new to catskiing.
Canada is the “wild west” of skiing, welcoming all types of powder cowboys, and offering a much different atmosphere than Europe. In this vast, beautiful country, you’ll find plenty of fresh powder, untracked slopes and incredible views at every turn. In many ways, Canada is the ultimate skiing destination, what Hawaii or Indonesia might be for surfers, Canada offers the same to powder hounds: the biggest mountains, best snow, and some of the most expansive terrain you’ll find anywhere on the planet.
