Cat skiing involves conveying people up a mountain in a snowcat, the same heavy machine that is used for grooming the slopes of commercial snow resorts. The use of a snowcat allows people to ski or ride fresh, untracked backcountry terrain, without the effort and equipment required for ski touring, or foot-travel. It is also more economical and environmentally friendly than heliskiing, which involves commuting to the top of a mountain by helicopter. First started in 1975 in Meadow Creek, BC, cat skiing has grown to 20 operations in BC, more than 40 worldwide, and hosts more than 40 000 visitors each season. White Grizzly Cat Skiing caters to a maximum of 12 guests per day, which means our unique services are only experienced by approximately 200 guests each winter.
