Alpine Skiing by Snowcat

Cat Skiing in the High Alpine
Snowcats access the tops of high bowls and great alpine slopes. Runs can have vertical drops of 1200 ft to over 2000 ft.

Snow cat skiing is well adapted to short holidays and many operators offer 3-day and 4-day full-service tour packages. Cat skiing is not normally weather-dependent and there is rarely any “down-time”. Almost every day is a good cat skiing day. Cat skiing provides a relaxed vacation that requires no prior experience or special equipment.

Cat skiing is not typically "hard core". The pace of skiing is set by the skiing group. With a dedicated snowcat, there is no pressure to keep up with a machine and with other groups. Cat Skiing is well suited to strong intermediate skiers and expert skiers alike.
