Powder Mountain Cat Skiing Whistler
The Whistler cat skiing outfit, Powder Mountain, is very aptly named! Whistler ski resort
gets big dumps of snow, yet the Powder Mountain cat skiing terrain receives even more snow - traditionally an additional 60%! That’s music to a powder hound’s ears!
In case you’re wondering what cat skiing is, check out our overview of snowcat skiing
. The essential thing to know is that it provides an amazing powder skiing or snowboarding experience with abundant lines of virgin snow.
Cat skiing has huge advantages over resort skiing, particularly when it comes to Whistler. On a powder day at Whistler you need the mantra of “no friends on powder days” and have to elbow others aside just to get a few fresh tracks. With cat skiing you don’t have to share the powder with the crowds. At Powder Mountain the small group of other cat skiers will be your friends, and with a plethora of freshies, deep powder and face shots, you can keep your elbows to yourself!
If you’ve never been cat skiing before and you can competently ride a black run, then this is the time to try it. It’s highly likely to be the absolute highlight of your Whistler ski holiday.
