KPow delivered the goods last week when we went up as group of 16 for a full day cat skiing. All of the crew are super friendly and happy to help with anything, they all had heaps of knowledge on the area too which was awesome. The mountain itself is so impressive, it has some incredible terrain to offer and... More

Kpow delivered the day of a lifetime! Their team felt like family to me and they took the such great care of us in all aspects of safety, avalanche recovery/education, gourmet food and most importantly, fun. We enjoyed fresh snow all day and even broke virgin territory that hadn't been touched all season. I can't say enough pleasantries about the... More

Kpow where have you been all our lives?!? Saturday was our first cat skiing experience and it blew our minds! Staff is excellent, operation smooth and the runs were so much fun with so much powder! We lucked out in every way for conditions and can't wait to go back again!! A very rewarding experience.

I learned to ski at Fortress and was very disappointed when the hill closed several years ago. When Kpow began I knew I had to get out there. I went once in February and once in March. The conditions the first time were good but not great (much better than your average day at a regular resort). The second time... More

Undeniably the greatest ski adventure of my life. This crew is all about sharing joy and kindness on an unbelievably picturesque mountain. Their entire day was spent making sure we were experiencing the best day possible. The skiing was epic and the lunch in the forest was superb. I would highly recommend KPOW.

It is uncommon in my experience that such an operation offers the opposite of their product to an extreme. When you can not offer your product; powder snow and offer ice rock and multi slab layered snow and wind sept slopes instead, then there is a problem. On the day I went skiing, the conditions were deplorable. What was more... More

Hi Lee, We contacted most of the guests who were coming this week and advised them of the conditions. While just last week we had more than 50 cm of fresh powder, a Chinook created a wind crust that made the open slopes firm. We worked hard to find tree skiing that had soft snow, and for our efforts were... More
