Wondering what Snowcat skiing is? Snowcat skiing began 30 years ago when a couple from British Columbia realized that ski grooming machines would make an excellent transportation resource in which to access the back-country for skiing. Snowcat skiing is one substitute for heli-skiing and provides a unique skiing experience by using a Snowcat to transport guests to deep powder ski areas.
