BEST CAT SKIING OVERALL IN THE USA!!

CAT SKIING
We cat ski and snowboard in the backcountry
of Schweitzer Mountain Resort, just 30 miles
from the wettest spot in the American Rockies
and 40 miles south of BC on Highway 95, the
Powder Highway!
Being here makes our snow
quality excellent and the fresh powder very dependable.
An “average” season is 300+ inches, but more
importantly the Selkirks retain it's base making our
ridge depths up to 20 feet deep!

Our operations lodge is on a 3-mile long
ridgeline, just steps away from Schweitzer's
Great Escape chairlift. We ride in the
opposite direction on 92 runs facing
west, north and south-west. Our glacier
-scarred terrain is full of undulating open
bowls, steep chutes, managed plantation
cut-blocks and epic sections of old-growth
trees. Slope angles vary from light up to
mid-40 degrees.

The runs are between 800 to 2,400 vertical
with an aversge 1,200 feet.
The average group makes 10 runs,
achieving about 12,000 vertical feet.

We have 3 powerful PistenBully with
custom "in-the-round" seating cabins built
for 10 riders each. The snowcats are expertly
maintained by dedicated shop personnel.

What people remark about most is the fresh
conditions and the tree skiing, followed up
by the proficiency of our guides and the
quick transition to lodging and apres-ski.

Selkirk Powder snowmobile tours are
reknown for their vertical fun and
awesome scenery.

SNOWMOBILE TOURS
Snowmobiling is the perfect activity to get a
small group outdoors and into the woods.
And it doesn't hurt to be doing it at one of the
snowiest resorts in the US Rockies!
The trails we ride in Selkirk Mountains
are typically covered with fresh powder snow,
renewed by Mother Nature often so you won’t
encounter packed bumps due to high traffic.
Unlike most snowmobile tour operators, our fun
begins at 6400' from our "summit" lodge 150 yards
from Schweitzer ski resort's Great Escape chairlift

We offer two wicked fun tours
Explorer Perfect for those who only have a
couple hours to play or are new to snowmobiling.
It’s typically a 1.5 hour throttle time during
which you'll explore the trails along the ridge
line, or dip into the Middle Fork, home to
trout, moose and sleeping grizzly bear.
Total tour time 2.5-3hrs
3 tours per day; 8:30, 11 & 1

Voyager For those who want to spend some
more time on the throttle; 3 hours of riding time.
Tour to different views or take ride all the way
to our Selkirk Powder Ranch on the Priest River.
Total tour time 4-4.5hrs 1 tour per day 8:30am

What people remark about most is the size and
beauty of our terrain, the ease of driving the
snowmobiles, the proficiency of our guides and
the amenities of the resort including lodging..
