What is the terrain like?

We have terrain for every ability and fetish. Tree skiing freak? Powder Mountain has awesome trees and glades. Love the high alpine open bowl skiing? Got you covered. With 5 peaks to choose from we have every kind of skiing you could want. The guides constantly monitor the weather and snow and we go to where the snow that is best that day.

What is your average Catskiing vertical?

For catsking Not less than 7,000 ft, but mostly 8,000ft to 10,000ft per day.

You can expect six to ten runs, depending on the conditions and the group. Our runs range in vertical from 800ft to around 3,000ft. Most runs are in the 1200-2200 vertical foot size. Having runs of this size means you spend less time in the cat between runs and more time skiing or riding. It also means you can charge down each run with out getting worn out.

Is the terrain shared with any other tour operators?


Is tipping the guides allowed?

Yes, tipping is allowed and encouraged.

Can or will I ride with famous skiers or snowboarders?

Absolutely! Whistler has pro skiers like a hot tub has water. There's always the off chance a famous skier or snowboarder will be part of your group. They know how much fun catskiing and heliskiing and boarding is.

Where does Powder Mountain operate?

We are based in Whistler, BC, Canada and operate snow cats in the Tricouni Peak and Cypress Peak areas.

We fly helis in separate terrain shown here, mostly the Ashlu region.

Our base lodge is 20 minutes south of Whistler (1hr 20mins from Vancouver).
