Every Kind of Cat.

Cat skiing is not like any resort skiing you’ve ever done; there’s no waiting in lift lines, no fighting for untracked snow and no cold lift rides. With over 70,000 private acres of skiable terrain you have fresh Utah powder all day, everyday. Not to mention your ride to the top is in one of our warm, cozy, luxurious snowcats so after each run you can warm up with warm drinks, music and friends.

Get Vertical.

A day of cat skiing comes with 8-12 thousand vertical feet guaranteed, breakfast, lunch, beverages, refreshments, beacons and guides. That is about 8-15 runs dependent on group ability and snow conditions. There is no age requirement, we base it on skier ability. We recommend you be an advanced to expert skier. This means you are able to ski black diamonds comfortably and have some experience skiing powder.

Pick Your Poison.

There are 3 different cat types to choose from: Powder Cat, Private Powder Cat and Private Steep & Deep. Each cat has a capacity of 12 guests and our Powder Cat has a minimum requirement of 4 guests to operate (if there are less than 4 guests on your desired date we will do our best to fill the rest of the cat). If you’d like to book a Private Cat you must book the entire cat, this guarantees your group will have the entire cat to yourselves. The Private Steep & Deep Cat goes out an hour earlier to get you the most vertical possible.
