Snow-Cat Skiing:


“Snowcat skiing with Steamboat Powdercats is a unique experience, one that may reward you with the best day of skiing in your life. Though Mother Nature holds the cards to how powder rich your day with us will be, we’ve put together a system with our guides, cats and infrastructure that should provide you with an excellent day in the Steamboat back-country. 3 heated snowcats allow us to group our guests by skiing ability so everyone is at their comfortable level.  The skiing terrain is matched to the ability level of the group so it’s very important to be honest with us when placing you and your group into our cats”.
