CAT SKI CANADA - Ski powder in any weather
From US$ 950 per person
Cat skiing is the ultimate option for those on a budget who want an incredible powder experience.
Much like Heliskiing, Cat skiing is all about getting epic fresh powder lines run after run after run.
Unlike Heli skiing, cat skiing can operate in any weather and most snow conditions. Cat skiing was invented in British Columbia and remains the center of the best cat skiing in the world.
An average day usually consists of breakfast at the cat ski base, then a bit of safety training ( if you're doing a day cat ski experience) then its into the cat for 4 or 5 really long runs' or 8 -10 shorter runs with lunch in the cat on the way back up to the top. then its back to the cat ski base for an apres ski snack to finish off the day.
