What our customers say

"Alaska – every freerider’s dream. And it really is like that. It was worth every cent. Snowboarding as you see it in the movies, cool lodges, nice and helpful people. Awsome, awesome, awesome!"

(Chugach Powder Guides - USA)

"Really one of the top experiences in my life!"

(White Grizzly Catski - Canada)

"That was the best experience EVER! Snowboarding on the fresh powder and enjoying every run. Super satisfied with the 8 runs we did. At the end I was quite tired, but in conditions like these I could another 3 or more runs if it was possible. Crew was great, they really know what are they doing. I recommend it to everyone who wants an ultimate powder day! :)"

(Powder Mountain Catskiing - Canada)

"Great value for the money. Since I can’t afford to go heli skiing in Canada or USA, Macedonia catskiing is an awesome replacement. We had nice weather, great powder and food was delicious. One of the best adventures in my life :)"

(Eskimo Snowcat Freeriding - Macedonia)

Four Reasons a Snowcat Trip is Your Ideal Adventure


Endless options for your boundless snowcat adventure

There’s no such thing as a typical snowcat trip! Depending on your appetite for champagne powder, you can hit backcountry for just a morning or afternoon, pack 10 to 18 runs in a full day trip or push the limits (and get your legs burning!) on a multi-day excursion. If it’s all-inclusive or just the essentials you’re after, LUEX can help you find the snowcat trip package that suits you.

Trips are available for all ability levels, from backcountry first-timers to expert skiers and riders. Snowcats can tailor a trip to suit your level of powder prowess, so no one has to be left behind on the bunny slope.


Snowcat trips are more bang for your buck

With a snowcat trip, you’ll get a tonne of value for money. Since costs for fuel, equipment, and machinery are much cheaper than the heli ski alternative, you’ll find snowcats are the economical way to backcountry. Snowcat trips are available to suit almost every traveling budget, so if you’re dreaming of no lift lines and valleys of virgin powder, but your reality is a tight budget, we’ve got you covered.

When you’re done terrorizing fresh powder, you’ll want to put your feet up. And although it’s hard to put a price on rest and recovery after a day of snowcat adventuring, we know some people have to. Our chosen global operators have every accommodation option to suit your wallet, from luxurious digs to rustic cabins. Groups can be catered for with larger lodgings, and couples and solo adventurers need not worry about breaking the bank.


Catski is popular across the globe

Snowcats are swelling in popularity, so operators are found throughout the world. Some backcountry regions are just a lot more popular than others. For those who want to find the best powder, service and snowcat experiences, head to North America. Canada and Alaska’s stunning landscapes, deep bases and virgin snow are the reward for those willing to venture into the Great White North. In Macedonia, Eskimo Snowcat Freeride is an amazing experience for Europeans unable to travel far for their winter sojourn. And for those keen for a taste of the exotic, head to South America where Chile’s Ski Arpa Cat Skiing will show you the breathtaking Himalayas.


An adventure to rival heli skiing

Snowcat trips offer the perfect balance of adventure and value, especially in comparison to taking a helicopter. Catskiing was once unaptly nicknamed heli skiing’s “little sister”, but it has finally stepped out from the shadow. Snowcat riding offers many advantages heli skiing doesn’t come close to beating. It’s about half the price to hit backcountry via a snowcat and you won’t have to worry about down days from average flying conditions. A snowcat will sniff out the region’s best cliffs, features, and powder from the ground. And forget loud noises and the weight of safety precautions for helicopter travel. In a snowcat, sit back, relax and enjoy the laidback vibe that this stress-free trip allows.
