Chatter Creek Cat Skiing Packages

Powder hounds may chatter incessantly about this Golden cat skiing. Vast high alpine terrain, stunning powder, and rustic remote backcountry lodges make Chatter Creek cat skiing unparalleled.

Chatter Creek provides amazing 4 & 5 day (3 and 4 days of cat skiing) holidays that will create ever lasting memories. Over the Xmas period (and sometimes in the late season), 3 day (2 days of cat skiing) trips are also on offer.

The cat skiing packages are inclusive of the guided cat skiing, accommodation, and meals plus a spectacular helicopter transfer to and from the remote backcountry lodge.

Accommodation is provided at either the Vertebrae or Solitude Lodge, which are interconnected and akin to a luxurious well-appointed hotel. Accommodation is within large double occupancy rooms with ensuite; the beds have down duvets and are super comfortable.

Lodge amenities include a bar, hot tub, sauna, massage service, computer work stations with internet, and quiet spots to retreat with a book. Gourmet meals are served in the spacious dining room and Chatter Creek has a great wine list. On the remote chance that you’ve still got the munchies, there is a 24 hour a day snack station.

Chatter Creek cat skiing also has a selection of high performance fat skis and powder snowboards that are available to rent at reasonable rates.

Chatter Creek Season

The Chatter Creek season runs from early December to early April. Chatter Creek cat skiing is very popular so it tends to book up quickly during January and February and you need to get in quickly. Trips in December and March take a little longer to fill up, and these periods can provide an equally awesome experience. In December in particular, the rates are more attractive and you can escape from the pre-Xmas mayhem back home.

Here is a taste of what you can expect.....

Chatter Creek Lodging

Deep in the Canadian Rockies backcountry, Chatter Creek guests stay in a well appointed large double occupancy room with an adjoining en suite bathroom and two double beds.

Whether you stay in Vertebrae Lodge or Solitude Lodge, you are guaranteed a warm and comfortable place after an epic day of powder skiing or snowboarding. Both lodges are built from handcrafted old growth local spruce logs and offer plenty of space to mingle in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.

Dining Experience
Chatter Creek offer their guests a wide variety of unforgettable meals prepared by their chefs with your complete satisfaction as a goal. Their professional baker will also treat you daily with artisan breads, fine pastries and incredible baked goods.

Catskiing & Heliskiing guests with dietary requirements need not to worry. Please let Chatter Creek staff know prior to your arrival and they will assure that we have your requirements looked after. Whether you are a diabetic, need a gluten or lactose-free diet or follow a kosher diet, they are pleased to accommodate your needs.

Massages
After skiing, sometimes the muscles need some attention. At Chatter Creek, you can enjoy a massage from our in house massage therapists. There are three full time professionals to look after your massage needs.

Massages are available for 1/2 hour or one-hour sessions. Chatter Creek recommend that you book a massage at least two weeks prior to arrival, to ensure that you get your preferred time.

They recommend that you download large files before you arrive. They also ask that you avoid video-conferencing or streaming (i.e.,Skype, FaceTime, YouTube).

Drying Outdoor Clothing
An important aspect of any skiing and snowboarding holiday is the ability to dry all wet gear before the next day’s adventure. Chatter Creek uses a forced air drying system to gently dry clothes and boots without deforming custom liners. Each guest is assigned an individual locker to store and dry their outdoor gear.

Standard Booking & Cancellation Policy

By booking and paying for your trip you accept the terms and conditions, waiver and cancellation policies as set out on our website. Please ensure you have read these polices in detail before you book.

All payments received are not cash refundable. When applicable, credits towards a future trip will be issued.

If a tour is cancelled due to weather, snow instability, or any other reason, CCML will issue a credit forward towards your tour in the following year equal to 100% of the value of payments received. If a tour is partially cancelled for any reason, CCML will issue a prorated credit equal to the cancelled days forward toward the following year’s tour. For partially cancelled tours the heli‐transport costs are not refundable. Guests will be responsible for payment related to price increases in the following year and these amounts must be paid in full at the final payment due date.

Standard Cancellation Policy Exemptions

For early season tours commencing on or before December 12th, a full cash refund will be issued if the tour is cancelled due to early season conditions. For all other tours commencing from December 13th to the end of the operating season, the standard booking and cancelation policy applies.

Resale of Your Trip Seat

In the event that following the confirmation of your booking, you are unable to attend your tour for any reason, CCML will work with you to resell your trip seat in the following manner:

  1. A $250 administration fee applies to all resale of seats where the payment transaction is processed by CCML.
  2. If CCML is requested by the guest to find a replacement for their trip seat, payment will be refunded to the guest once the seat has been filled and payment has been received. Refunds will be issued by cheque and may take 4 to 6 weeks to process, if processed during the operating season.
  3. CCML will discuss a resale price of your seat with you prior to advertising it. The recommended resale price may be less than face value, depending on how close the resale is to the trip start date.
  4. You may resell your seat privately to another skier, aged 19 years of age or older, but only with our knowledge and consent. In order for CCML to not charge a resale administrative fee, you must collect monies directly from the replacement guest.
  5. In the unlikely event that the seat cannot be filled either by CCML or the cancelling guest, then all payments received by CCML are non‐refundable.

Down Days Due to Snow Cat Breakdown or Weather

CCML has a standby snow cat available to minimize the likelihood that any ski time would be lost due to equipment failure. It is very unlikely that you would lose a ski day as a result of our inability to repair our equipment. Unusual weather‐related problems beyond the control of CCML can cause down days, and although very rare for our operation, it is possible and has happened. CCML does not provide replacement ski days for down days due weather‐related problems (e.g. snow slope instability, isothermal conditions due to rain).

Weather Related Delays – Transport to and from the Lodge

There is no extra charge for guests delayed at the lodge due to weather. When booking your flights home, we suggest that you allow sufficient time in case there is a delay returning from the lodge or possible highway closures. Flights home are best booked for the following day. Winter travel can be uncooperative and the storm cycles that make travel difficult usually produce the best powder skiing.

In the event that the helicopter cannot fly to the Lodge due to poor weather a ground transfer may occur. Ground transfers can take four hours or longer, depending on road conditions. CCML assumes no responsibility for costs incurred by guests having to find alternate accommodation and meals due to transport delay in arriving at or leaving the lodge but will assist with finding suitable accommodation.

CCML is not responsible for mechanical issues or weather instability which results in the helicopter being unavailable for transporting guests to/from the lodge. In the event ground transport is required, no refunds or trip credits are issued based on the means of transport for guest transfer in or out of the lodge.

Trip Insurance

CCML strongly recommends that you consider purchasing trip insurance which covers you for cancellation, delay or injury. You will not receive a refund from CCML if you do not take your trip or your trip is curtailed for these reasons. You should also ensure that you have adequate medical and evacuation insurance to cover you in the event of injury.

Heli Evacuation Insurance

Given the remoteness of the CCML Lodge, the cost of a BC Air Ambulance can run anywhere from $3,500 to $5,500*. We have instituted a Heli evacuation program, offered at a nominal fee of $5 per ski day. This is a great way to protect yourself from these costs, allowing you to focus on recovery from your accident, or injury. To make it nice and simple, we simply add the cost of this insurance program to your booking. If you are involved in an accident or are injured and the first aid representative at the scene determines that a helicopter evacuation is required, you will be flown out and there will be no bill, or invoice. Air Ambulance is not always covered by your medical insurance. It is NOT covered by Canadian Medical Insurance Plans. *For residents not covered by the BC Medical Services Plan.

Personal Property Insurance

If you are concerned about the safety of your equipment and personal belongings, please ensure that they are covered by your household insurance policy before you leave home. Equipment lost while skiing or in transport is the responsibility of the guest. Attempts will be made to recover the lost articles at the time or in the summer, but the terrain is very large, inaccessible and difficult to access in the summer and this makes recovery very difficult. CCML reserves the right to charge the skier for lost rental skis, depending on the circumstances.
