Skeena Cat Skiing
Skeena Heli Skiing is well known for bringing powder to the people, and now part of the Skeena Heli Ski tenure is available for Skeena cat skiing!
The main difference between heli skiing
and cat skiing is just the mode of transport up the hill. Whilst heli skiing may seem a little more glamorous, cat skiing has many advantages (see our overview of cat skiing
for more information).
Most importantly, cat skiing offers access to the same gorgeous deep powder, so head out with Skeena Cat Skiing and you’ll be skiing or boarding all the fresh powder you could ever fantasise about.
All Inclusive Packages
Skeena Cat Skiing offer multi-day all-inclusive packages for up to 12 guests that include guided cat skiing, accommodation at the Backcountry Base Camp, all meals, snacks, use of an avalanche transceiver, and transport between Smithers Airport and the base camp. There are 3, 4 and 5-day packages.
Powder skis heighten the awesome feeling of floating in the bottomless powder. If you don’t have your own powder skis, Skeena Cat Skiing has a range available to rent.

Where is Skeena Cat Skiing Located?
The Skeena Cat Skiing meeting place at Suskwa Lodge is located 45 minutes northwest of Smithers near New Hazelton in northern BC, Canada. The backcountry camp is accessible via 4WD and snowcat, a trip that takes about 1.5 hours.
The cat ski terrain is within the Babine Range of the Skeena Mountains. The Skeena Mountains are east of the Coastal Mountains so they still get the big dumps of snow, yet the powder is dry relative to that of the Coastal Mountains.
The easiest access to Smithers is via a 1.5 hour flight with Hawkair from Vancouver. Transport is then provided between Smithers airport and the base camp.
