Great value- at $499.00 Cdn +HST for a full day catskiing or catboarding is your best bet for getting the most untracked snow for your money. A day spent skiing at Powder Mountain Catskiing is a full day spent skiing. The average day is 7-9 runs . We are as happy to ski more than the average as you are. There is no charge for extra runs. You won't find a better powderdayinWhistler.
Flexibility- regardless of your ability we can choose the perfect runs for you. With two certified guides and our relaxed pace, it's the ideal choice for those who want to learn to ride powder OR for those who can shred with the best. Relax in the cat for a breather, or go for max vertical.
Booking Reliability- snowcats can take people skiing in all conditions, so snowcat skiers don't get shut down due to weather like heliskiers do. When you book a seat and spend months looking forward to getting the powder skiing you have dreamed of, you get it. You don't get shut down at 8 am because it's too windy or snowing too hard. It means when it's dumping, you're skiing. Some of the best days we have are when it's snowing so hard helicopters are unable to fly. The harder it snows the better the skiing. Instead of being stuck in Whistler Village, waiting for the the top lifts to open, or the helicopters to start flying, you could be in one of our snowcats being taken safely into the mountains and skiing what could be your "BEST DAY EVER".
Accessibility- catskiing is for everyone. If you can ski Whistler Blackcomb, you can ski with us. We have runs from green circles to black and double black diamonds. No matter where we go there is an easy way down. Almost anyone can catski, and have a blast doing it.
Quality- this is the Whistler you came for... No lift lines no crowds and great snow all day.
A typical day
Meet at Our village location 4145 Village Green , to check in and sign your waiver (waiver must be signed the night before).
Be dressed and ready to ski . We drive you and your equipment to our simple base lodge The Powder Mountain base Lodge is 20 minutes south of Whistler on Highway 99 at the Chance Creek turn off.
Departure for "Your Best Day Ever" from the Gone Bakery. Don't be late.
- 8:30am - 8:45am
At our simple base lodge we have a cozy fireplace and bathroom facilities. After a short talk on the day's proceedings and a safety briefing regarding snowcat procedures, we load up the snowcat and head out into the backcountry.
- 9:15am - 9:45am
You step out of the snowcat and begin a quick safety orientation. . After that, it's time to get our first taste of the day's snow. You will be at 6,500 feet altitude, clicking into your bindings for the first run of the day. The first run is always a mellow one to let everyone get warmed up. This allows the guides to get an idea of the ability level of the group. The groups' ability and snow conditions determine what kind of terrain and runs we will be riding.
- 3.00pm - 3:30pm
The end of your day depends more on the energy level of the group, snow and weather conditions etc, than what time it is. We ski down the cat road as a fun alternative to riding home in the snowcat. If you are feeling tired, you can also get back in the snowcat at any time on the ski-out for a ride home.
You return to our Base Lodge and re-live the day checking out all the photos from the day, then transfer into our 4x4 vans and head back to Whistler.
You are usually back in Whistler around 4:30. Sometimes the weather makes for a slower drive back.
