Snowcat Skiing

An exclusive alpine experience.

Get away from it all with Snowbird Mountain Guides Snowcat skiing and riding. Get the most out of your time in the mountains and experience the old-growth forest, rocky spires rising above you, and stillness so quiet you can hear your skis swooshing through the cold dry powder. You will gear up and join your expert guides for breakfast before heading out onto the slopes. Catskiing with us is a great way to get some quality time with your family or co-workers, make your ski date extra special or take a break from waiting in lift lines.
