Silverton Powdercats’ wide variety of terrain allows us to pick and choose runs to satisfy everyone’s needs. Whether it’s ripping the steep faces of Big Mo, cruising wide open powder of Lime Creek or grooving in the trees of the Glade, our terrain will bring a smile to everyone’s face. Hiking routes are available for those seeking a little more adventure. Contact us today for more details.
We ask that all guests be able to ski or ride at an advanced-intermediate level. Our vast terrain offers an array of experiences allowing our knowledgeable staff to choose terrain that fits each group’s preferences. If you are concerned about holding up other skiers or boarders, or are concerned with being held up, consider a private cat and enjoy the day at your pace (10 person maximum).
Our 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 our safety orientation. Our goal is to leave our parking lot at 9:30 am with a short ride to our first run; no chairlift, to shuttle van to hour-long snowcat ride. We get you to the goods ASAP! From there we will tour our terrain searching out the best snow, averaging 9-14 runs per day depending on the group’s desires. We end our day by skiing our last run all the way back to our base of operation, no long cat ride home required, an attribute not many operations can tout! We try to end our day returning to home base between 3:30 and 4:00. A full lunch is provided (please let us 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.
Avalanche beacons are provided for each guest as well as a full orientation to familiarize you with this equipment. We do not require our guests to carry probes and shovels. Phat skis and longer snowboards are recommended, and may make your day much more enjoyable. Skis and snowboards are not provided, see the links page for local rental/retail options.
