Other than the basics that you would pack for any vacation, here are a few suggestions you might find useful for your cat skiing holiday:
We suggest that you bring your own boots, and if you are travelling by plane, that you carry them on as hand luggage.
Passport - If you are crossing the border into Canada - do not forget your passport!
Your personal ski or snowboard gear - goggles, toques, helmets, gloves, etc.
Ski clothes - We recommend light outerwear (shell) and a few layers that can be adjusted for the weather. Remember, we have a relatively mild climate, and a heated snowcat, overly warm clothes could make you somewhat uncomfortable on the mountain...
Casual, comfy, après ski clothes.
Slippers or indoor shoes for the lodge
Your favorite beer, wine, or spirits.
Camera (and spare batteries, charging cables and connecting cables for computer / projector)
Day pack - We provide a Protective Airbag System backpack to each guest to use during their stay, to which you can add an extra layer of clothes, pair of goggles, gloves, your camera, etc...
Any medications or prescriptions you require, there are no pharmacies in Meadow Creek or on the snowcat.
You won't need:
Formal wear, dinners at the Lodge are very casual.
Towels or bed linens, these are provided with your room.
Airbag - We provide one for each guest.
Boot dryers - We provide them for you in the drying room at the Lodge.
Ski or snowboard tuning equipment - We have a full set of tuning and fixing tools at White Grizzly Lodge should you need them.
A cell phone – You are welcome to bring it, but it won’t work here. As we like to tell our guests, “We are not in the middle of nowhere, but you can see it from here!”
Now taking reservations for the 2019-2020 season! Reserve now!
Our Guests Say...
It just never stopped puking for 48 hours straight. 37 cm over night, 22 when we arrived. Snowed 25 today. All at -4, -5. Deepest pow of my life. Trofts. Beautiful as it can get in the mountains. Thanks forever!
