Heli & cat skiing in Revelstoke

Heli & cat skiing in Revelstoke

Day 1

After warming up with a day on the resort, book a day-trip with any of the cat ski operations around Revelstoke. Try K3 cat ski or Revelstoke Mountain Resort for day cat skiing. Either join a group as a solo rider, or talk to the operation about filling a cat with a group of friends. Click into a pair of fat skis (ski and snowboard rentals are included in the tour price for many operators) and enjoy amazing deep powder descents and cozy climbs, as you kick back with a hot cup of tea or a delicious snack in the cat between runs. Don’t forget to load up your ipod with music that gets you pumped to ride, most cats are equipped with sound systems, and are happy to facilitate between run dance parties.

Day 2

With a belly full of gourmet cookies, (cat and heliski operations are known for fueling their guests with decadent cuisine) and a day of powder skiing under your belt, you’ll be ready for an aerial tour of the vast glaciers and lofty peaks that surround Revelstoke. Try Selkirk Tangiers, or Eagle Pass for an array of single and multi-day packages to suit your needs and budget. To have full discretion over your experience organize a group of four and book a private A-star tour. If you are on your own, or want to meet new skiers — join in on a larger group and sit back and enjoy the ride!

There is always more to discover and for many guests a few days of cat or heliskiing just isn’t enough. To fully immerse yourself in the experience consider a week-long backcountry escape at the award winning Bighorn Lodge in town or take a trip with CMH at one of their beautiful backcountry lodges.
