Ski or snowboard untouched powder in the Rocky Mountain backcountry (off-piste), led by professional guides, driven up to each run by snowcat and shared only with a small group of like-minded skiers and riders.

That is what you can expect from cat skiing in Fernie, British Columbia. With access to vast terrain and epic snow, this is the ultimate ski vacation you've been waiting for. Choose a single day from $400/person (approx. $327 USD) or multi-day overnight cat ski trips in a backcountry lodge with gourmet meals and service. Be sure to rent their fat skies if you don't have your own pair!

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!
