Did You Know?

There are at least 18 snowcat skiing operators in British Columbia, located in the Rockies, the Selkirks, the Monashees, the Shuswaps, the Coast Range and elsewhere. Every year,more and more strong-intermediate and expert skiers are turning to snowcat skiing for great powder skiing. Snowcat skiing does not require prior "backcountry" experience, special training or special gear. Just show up with your boots and some clothing and operators will rent you the best ski for the snow and the terrain (snowboarders need to bring their boards). Never done it before? Some operators provide instruction for novice powder snow skiers. It helps to be in good shape, but lots of "powder" experience is often not necessary.

Some operators having a predominance of steep terrain ask for expert skiers only, but there are may operators with a wider variety of terrain, with more "mellow" slopes that are perfect for any strong-intermediate skier.

Scroll down and use the links at the top of the page to find out about snowcat skiing at Chatter Creek, located in the Western Rockies. Check out the glacier skiing, the open alpine skiing, the wide open cut blocks, the old burns and the tree skiing, with its great open glades. Try it and you'll be hooked.
