Silverton Powdercats - Day Cat Skiing Packages

In close proximity to other ski areas and really close to Silverton Mountain, Silverton Powdercats provides the opportunity to combine some lift accessed skiing with cat skiing. You can mix and match the skiing depending upon your budget, although with super cheap Silverton hotels, your holiday can have more of a bias towards cat skiing.

If you are an individual or small group you can join a "mixed group" or if you are a large group a "private snowcat" might be just the ticket for you! Your ability should be a minimum of strong-intermediate to join a mixed-group.

Silverton Powdercats operate 2 snowcats with capacity of 10 guests per snowcat.

Costs are USD$400 per  per person or USD$3,750/day per snowcat.

A standard day is about 10 - 14 runs depending on the speed of the group and the snow conditions. Lunch is provided on the mountain and you with be provided with avalanche safety gear.

Located in the San Juans, the terrain includes chutes, steeps, glades, trees and open bowls, much of which is above tree-line and reaching up to 12,500 feet in elevation.

The Daily Schedule

The day starts at 9:00 am with guest check-in. At this time guests will fill out paper work, settle any balances due and go through the safety orientation. The goal is to leave our parking lot at 9:30 am with a short ride to your first run; no chairlift, to shuttle van to hour-long snowcat ride. Silverton Powdercats get you to the goods ASAP! From there Silverton Powdercats will tour their terrain searching out the best snow, averaging 9-14 runs per day depending on the group’s desires.

You will end your day by skiing your last run all the way back to the Silverton Powdercats base of operation, no long cat ride home required, an attribute not many operations can tout! They try to end the day returning to home base between 3:30 and 4:00.

A full lunch is provided (please let Silverton Powdercats know of any special diet needs) and served cat-side to keep you fueled for a full day of skiing and riding. Please bring some water for personal consumption.

Backcountry & Recommended Gear

Avalanche beacons are provided for each guest as well as a full orientation to familiarize you with this equipment. Silverton Powdercats do not require guests to carry probes and shovels.
