Picture yourself slicing through fresh powder in the beautiful backcountry of the world’s most remote ski and snowboard destinations. With a snowcat trip, you can get the most vertical for your buck as cat ski trips offer the perfect balance of fresh tracks to value, especially in comparison to heli ski. Cat skiing, often referred to as the “little sister” of heli skiing, shouldn’t stand in the shadow anymore. Snowcat riding offers many advantages that heli skiing doesn’t come close to beating.

With a snowcat trip you can be sure you will get more vertical for your money since costs for fuel, machines etc are much cheaper. Snow cats are able to quickly get you to your destination without the stressful safety procedures which you will always have with heliski. Not only that, but you won’t have to worry about the weather affecting the helicopter, so you can be sure that there will be no “down days”. Snow cats are also known for being more eco-friendly than helicopters. But if saving your money and reducing your carbon footprint aren’t your biggest concerns, just think about what a relaxing time you’ll have with a snowcat as your travel mode. Forget loud noises and the stress of serious safety precautions that are needed for helicopter travel. In a snowcat, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride, and don’t worry because you’ll feel warm and comfortable because of the laid-back vibe that this stress-free trip allows.

During your ride up the slopes to your next set of fresh tracks, you’ll enjoy the warm cabin of the snow cat and possibly relax to some good tunes, too. Riding in a snowcat will also be a great way to grab a quick snack, delicious sandwich, enjoy a hot drink between runs and exchange stories about the great pow with the new friends you’re sure to meet.

Typical Countries

Snowcat operators are found throughout the world, but there are a few places that one might call the Mecca of backcountry. In Europe, cat skiing is not available as there is so much infrastructure; however Eskimo Snowcat Freeride in Macedonia is a great option for someone who isn’t able to travel far for their ski holiday. For those who want to find the best powder, best service, and best cat ski experience, head to North America where you’ll enjoy the beautiful landscapes and untouched snow of Canada and Alaska’s many mountain ranges. For those interested in summer skiing or a taste of the exotic, head to South America where Chile has a world-renowned cat ski operation.
