Powder Mountain Cat Skiing Whistler

The Whistler cat skiing outfit, Powder Mountain, is very aptly named! Whistler ski resort gets big dumps of snow, yet the Powder Mountain cat skiing terrain receives even more snow - traditionally an additional 60%! That’s music to a powder hound’s ears!

In case you’re wondering what cat skiing is, check out our overview of snowcat skiing. The essential thing to know is that it provides an amazing powder skiing or snowboarding experience with abundant lines of virgin snow.

Cat skiing has huge advantages over resort skiing, particularly when it comes to Whistler. On a powder day at Whistler you need the mantra of “no friends on powder days” and have to elbow others aside just to get a few fresh tracks. With cat skiing you don’t have to share the powder with the crowds. At Powder Mountain the small group of other cat skiers will be your friends, and with a plethora of freshies, deep powder and face shots, you can keep your elbows to yourself!

If you’ve never been cat skiing before and you can competently ride a black run, then this is the time to try it. It’s highly likely to be the absolute highlight of your Whistler ski holiday.

Whistler Cat Skiing Terrain

The 4,300 acres of Powder Mountain cat skiing terrain is across five peaks, and runs can be tailored somewhat to varying abilities, from confident intermediates to experts. Depending upon snow and weather conditions, terrain includes high alpine bowls, gentle open meadows, and steep tree runs.

The operation covers an average of 8-10 runs per day (about 7,000 to 10,000 vertical feet of powder skiing), and up to 15 runs on an awesome day. Of course, if the legs are a bit weary you can sit out a couple of runs inside the heated cat.
