The Full Snowcat

There are many reasons to book a full snowcat, especially if you are very keen to get as many runs as possible.

We operate ONLY two cats in our huge and varied terrain.  This means way more powder and untracked turns for you and your friends.  This allows us to better cater to your needs and desires, and not be limited because there are 3 or 4 snowcats worth of people trying to share terrain.  Valhalla offers the best value, most fun, and highest level of safety in the business.

Why book a full snowcat

  • when you book a full cat you get the equivalent of 2 free seats!

  • each snowcat holds 12 guests.  We cater to strong skiers and we suggest you book the entire cat if you are concerned with your group's ability.

  • book 4 days of full snowcat and get a discount!

  • choose with or without lodging

  • option to hire your own photographer

Choose you own accommodation or let us do it for you!
