Bored with the usual? Take-the-lift-up-then-ski-down not quite thrilling enough? Try cat-skiing.

Cat-Skiing in Rossland

A snow cat is an enormous, fully-tracked machine with an enclosed cabin (like a tank for snow) used by mountain resorts to groom high-alpine runs or snowmobile tracks. Snow cats provide the transportation for cat-skiing.

Investigate Rossland and Red Mountain's real backcountry: five mountains with more than 7,500ha/18,500ac of backcountry skiing territory. Visitors looking for a unique winter ski experience will find incredible tree skiing, glades and wonderfully deep, pristine powder on a cat-ski tour.
