This is the place to go for serious powder. Just got back from a 4 day trip. Huge variety of terrain - open bowls, trees, steeps, logging clear cuts. Fresh tracks every run all 4 days & no shortage of terrain for the next groups to set their own 1st tracks. This place caters to serious powder skiers / boarders with experience in the steep & deep. Not the place to go for the inexperienced (imho) but it rocks if you know what you are doing. 12 persons per cat + lead guide / tail guide. 3 cats running, 36 guests at any time - gives you a good opportunity to meet new people during your visit.

Our snowcat has a Ipod compatible stereo in it - bring your pod & a good play list to keep the cat rocking between runs.

The lodge is in the back-country, near the top of their terrain. Usually only a couple minutes to your 1st run of the day - no long commutes + last run is also usually close to the lodge - again no long commutes - just skiing / boarding. Fly in on a heli if the weather is good - always a blast flying in the heli.

The vibe is much different than heli-ski ops I have been to - younger, more snowboard oriented. Bar in the lodge gets fairly rowdy at night, depending on who is there.

Staff are super-friendly all the way around - guides, cat drivers, bar tenders, etc. Jeff, the owner, was also there on transfer days - super nice guy, really makes all his guests feel welcome. In talking with him, he gets why people come to Baldface - the steep & deep - which seems to be the whole reason he is in the business - his own passion for the steep & deep.

Food is good but not the focus of the trip. Continental breakfasts, lunches are a variety of sandwiches & snacks, which you eat in the cast between runs (no down time, which is appreciated ). Dinners are 3 course (salad, main, dessert) with a different meat each night for the main.

What an experience! Great staff, guides and operators showed us some amazing snow and terrain. Fantastic on-mountain accommodations in their new lodge, along with spectacular food, makes this a great package!

Howdy We recently catered a wedding up at Baldface and I must say the Lodge rocks as well as the staff. As a service industry person, I was amazed at the level of professionalism and beauty. Thanks guys you rock

I had an incredible time at Baldface. These folks sure work hard and know how to help you have a good time. The food was great, the terrain was the best I've ever imagined and I got to ride it with really really nice guides. No kooky dictator style guiding, they let us jump rocks and pointed out all the sweet lines. It was great. The lodge is nice but, still needs to be completed. It's okay now, but when they get it done it will be incredible.

Hoghly reccomended!
