Tour Description

Who hasn’t dreamed of cat skiing? Season after season we see countless videos of the best skiers in the world riding incredible terrain that is only accessible by either snowcat or helicopter. You can share in those thrills with Park City Powder Cats and Heli-Ski, just a short drive from Park City. For more than 20 years, their expert guides, snowcat drivers, and pilots have been treating powder hounds to exclusive backcountry terrain in the Uinta Mountains. Operating on a 43,000 acre private ranch, more terrain than all of Utah’s 15 resorts combined, and no chairlifts in sight, Park City Powder Cats ensures that you’ll never have another ski experience quite like this one.

Guests are required to have experience skiing or riding in un-groomed powder conditions. Catered lunch, snacks, and free use of backcountry tools, including avalanche beacons, are provided. Rental equipment designed for powder skiing is available through Jans. Please email and specify that you will be backcountry skiing with Park City Powder Cats & Heli-Ski if you would like to rent fat skis for the occasion.

Types of Powder Skiing / Snowboarding:

Snowcat Service

Cat-skiing operations run daily regardless of weather, and average 8-12 runs per group. Each snowcat is equipped with a heated cabin to let you rest and warm up between runs.

Backcountry Touring

Backcountry touring is also available to skiers and splitboarders who want to earn their turns on harder-to-reach terrain. Guests are shuttled up to an elevation of 9,000 feet, where the backcountry tour begins. Please note that physical stamina to hike in the backcountry is essential.
