Myself and two friends booked a day with Big Red Cats on March 14, 2019. We were a bit reluctant that they’d be able to fulfill our desires to ride steep, deep, challenging, and playful terrain and unfortunately that proved to be true. Our cat...More

Very glad that the guide was able to find safe and decent skiing on the 4th-last day of the season, with all of the warming that was going on. I know it was a very challenging time for the guides during that warming period, and...More

I got into a last minute group thanks to Paula’s efforts & constant communication with me to fit me in, so I want to thank her for that. My two guides (Garrett & Ben) were very good and seemed well trained and prepared so no...More

Tried Big Red Cats for the first time and were very happy with their operations. Skiing was great. The guides (especially John) were fantastic. Can highly recommend them & will ski with them again.

Kieren and Paula are amazing hosts, have an incredible team and provide an amazing back country experience. We had the pleasure of touring the back country with Kieren and Oscar as our guides. They know the mountain intimately and guided us to untouched stashes with...More

We did 4 days at Big Red Cats this Feb/March and it was phenomenal. While Red Mountain got 50 cms in the 4 days the BRC tenure got over 100. Safety was paramount but suited for the occasion. Guides were awesome, friendly and well trained....More

The guides were great, the terrain we hit was pretty good. I’ve cat skied and heli skied at other locations and as a comparison found the runs we took were challenging but not pucker-up challenging. The driver and guides do take their time to try...More

Glad you had fun; some days the guides do have to scale back if the avalanche hazard is high, but if you pick the "Uber" group there should at least be others who are capable of the more puckerworthy runs when stability is good

I was super impressed with the speedy email communication and enjoyed being kept up to date with the conditions as we approached our ski day. The morning 'round up' is quick and painless, the actual ski area is easy to get to and the guides...More

Amazing snow can be reached by the cats over nearly 20,000 acres of mountainous wilderness. The service by the guides is enthusiastic, competent, and delivered with care, a big smile, and an expression of "Welcome to my world of fun" attitude. A truly awesome ski...More
