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

Paula and Kieran graciously offered “rain” checks after there were showers on the lower terrain and then a deep crusty freeze. I did spectacular days despite this and had some of the best runs of my life. The guides focused us on the higher terrain...More

The conditions were not ideal, but our guide found a great terrains for us. He took the weaker sker gently under his wing, so nobody had to wait. His focus on safety was most impressive. Highly recommended!
