Kat (Keystone Adventure Tours) - Cat SkiingThere’s no meow in cat skiing at Keystone as it’s called KAT skiing (Keystone Adventure Tours). Hugely underrated, cat skiing at Keystone is an awesome experience and a must do for anyone sampling the delights of Colorado ski resorts. Regardless of whether its “cat” or “kat”, you still get great powder skiing or boarding which you’ll remember for years.

Keystone Cat Skiing and Cat Boarding Packages Costing only US$240 per person (2012-13 price), cat skiing at Keystone is one of the cheapest operations in the USA. But cheap definitely does not mean second rate. The snowcats, facilities, guides, food and the skiing are all top notch. Included in the price are big fat Salomon powder skis, a gourmet three course lunch, drinks, avalanche briefing and beacon. If you can muster up a group of 12, book an entire cat for a discounted rate of $2,640.

In 2009 Keystone Adventure Tours introduced brand new shiny red cats (heated coach style cabins for their pampered guests), a beautifully situated brand new yurt (hut) with a sun deck (used as the lunch venue), plus newly acquired access to the smokin’ Independence Bowl. Unlike a lot of other cat-skiing operations, if conditions or the weather forecast don’t look promising, you can cancel within 72 hours of your booking at no cost – how good is that?!

Where is Keystone Adventure Tours? KAT is based at Keystone ski resort in the heart of Summit County, Colorado. Keystone is a short drive down Highway 6 just off the I70 interstate.

Snowcat Skiing and Boarding Terrain All the skiing takes place in Keystone’s Independence, Bergman and Erickson bowls. These high alpine bowls are all inbounds (i.e. part of Keystone resort) and top out at a whopping 12,614 feet (3,844m), guaranteeing great snow conditions.

The total amount of terrain is relatively small compared to other cat skiing operations in the world (less than 1,000 acres or 400 hectares). Having said that, it’s big enough that if it has been snowing or blowing, you’re unlikely to cross anyone else’s tracks.

Terrain includes big alpine bowls, cornices, light trees, wind drifts/lips, and if you want, some lovely rocks to leap off. The terrain is suited to all levels of skiers from high intermediate and above.

More Reasons to Cat Ski with KAT KAT’s guides will show you a fantastic all inclusive powder ski experience. These guides are absolute pros, know the terrain inside out and will inject as much FUN into the day as any human can muster. Bring your bestest attitude and have the bestest time with KAT.
