Whisper Ridge Cat Skiing Utah

It may be called Whisper Ridge Cat Skiing, but it’s no secret that this Utah cat skiing outfit has the “greatest snow on earth” and an abundance of gorgeous blower powder. With cat skiing at Whisper Ridge you get the best of both worlds: high quality snow that Utah’s famous for; along with a huge tenure so you’ll get lots of fresh lines (unlike at most of the Utah ski resorts where all the powder gets chumped up pretty quickly).

This Utah cat skiing operation is located in Paradise Utah, so as to be expected, the cat skiing is rather heavenly. Paradise is about an hour north of the ski resorts of Powder Mountain and Snowbasin so you can combine some resort skiing with cat skiing, or the mainstream Utah ski resorts are not too far away either.

With Whisper Ridge Utah cat skiing, you can choose from day cat skiing or multi-day snowcat skiing where you stay in a yurt in the remote backcountry to really unplug from everyday life.

Where is Whisper Ridge Cat Skiing?

Whisper Ridge is located deep within the highly renowned Wasatch Mountains near Paradise. It’s a 90 minute drive north of Salt Lake City Airport and 20 minutes south of Logan. Whisper Ridge Utah is about a one hour drive north of Eden and Huntsville, which are commonly used as a base to ski at Powder Mountain and Snowbasin ski resorts.

Or you can utilise the Eden meeting point near PowMow and Snowbasin.

One meeting point for the cat skiing is Cracker Barrell in Paradise (8990 South Hwy 165 Paradise). An AWD or 4WD vehicle is recommended to drive there, or a shuttle service can be arranged if necessary.

Snow

Utah doesn’t have the slogan of the “greatest snow on earth” for nothing! The Whisper Ridge Cat Skiing terrain scores 500 inches of high quality snowfall each season.

Terrain

The tenure is 70,000 acres, so there’s no shortage of terrain for the guides to choose from. The terrain ranges from open bowls to tight trees, with plenty of variety in between.

Typically a day of cat skiing with Whisper Ridge includes 8 to 15 runs and each run is about 800-1,200 feet. Usually a day totals 8,000 to 16,000 feet but it depends on the speed of the group (8,000 to 12,000 ft guaranteed).

Ability Level

The required minimum ability level is strong intermediate (in powder), although the terrain is best suited to advanced and expert riders. You’ll need to be comfortable with skiing or riding in deep powder and tight trees. Guests who are not comfortable on the terrain will be able to sit out runs in the snowcat, but will not be issued a refund.

Guests are grouped by ability level as much as possible.

There is no age requirement, so long as the ability requirements are met.
Each guest is provided with an avalanche transceiver, and each snowcat is equipped with 3 guest packs that contain a shovel and probe. You’re also welcome to utilise your own safety gear.

All of the guides at Whisper Ridge hold an Avalanche 2 and Wilderness First Responder or Outdoor Emergency Care certification. In addition, many guides are also EMTs. All have been working in the outdoors guiding and instructing skiers for years. Most come from a ski patrol background.
