COVID-19 Local & Travel Updates

2021-2022 catskiing season update: Both FWA Catskiing and Island Lake Catskiing will be open this season under specific COVID safety protocols. 

What is cat skiing? Imagine a ski resort snow grooming machine but totally amped up with a heated cozy 12-16 person cabin equipped with drinks, lunch and snacks that climbs up the mountain for your next run (repeat all day!). Ski or snowboard pristine powder alongside professional guides. For intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders. Enjoy sharing stories with your onboard companions from around the world as the snowcat takes you up to your next powder run. End the day at the lodge to relax with your new found friends as you enjoy a beverage and delicious comforting food. You can even stay the night or a few!
