Cat Ski Touring - 2017/2018 Seats Now Available!

 

These weekends are for nothing other than chasing pure, cold, Monashee powder pleasure! K3 Cat Ski, based in Revelstoke, BC has one of the best cat skiing tenures in Western Canada, much of which is waiting to be explored. Snowcats bump us up nearly 1500m off the valley floor first thing each morning and we spend the rest of the day ski touring from there. AWESOME!

During these weekends we'll be skiing and riding in our own quiet corner of the K3 tenure away from the regular cat-skiing programs. We'll explore and play in some new and seldom used terrain, and get as much Monashee powder flowing overhead as we possibly can. 
 

As with all our programs our guides make every effort along the way to make our trips educational for our guests. Snow stability evaluation, route selection and hazard management will be an inclusive and ongoing group discussion, and there will be the opportunity to get involved in these alongside the guides for those interested, keeping the focus on our main goal of skiing and riding as much as we can during the day.

 

Those new to ski touring and split-boarding are also encouraged to sign up as each of the weekends will be run with both an Apprentice Guide and Tail Guide, allowing us to have a variety of paces to the day and accommodate everybody's motivation levels.

 

Basically the most fun you'll have this winter with your boots on!
