Prepare to experience the skiing or snowboarding adventure of a lifetime. Just imagine, you and a group of close friends riding together, alone on a ski resort larger than the size of Deer Valley, Park City and the Canyons combined!
Your guides, Park City Powder Cats, have the exclusive rights to 40,000 acres of the Thousand Peaks Ranch, a powder hound's wintertime dream. Their staff of professionally trained guides and cat drivers will take you on the backcountry skiing experience of a lifetime.
Each snowcat seats a max of 10 skiers or snowboarders, and only 2-3 snowcats operate per day with each cat operating in a separate area of terrain. That means with only 20-30 skiers/day on all this terrain, you are sure to find all the fresh tracks and solitude you crave.
Between runs, sit back and relax in a comfortably heated snowcat complete with snacks and refreshments. For lunch, you'll enjoy catered sandwiches, wraps, soups, tea and fresh baked goods.
