This was one of the best experiences I've ever had on skis. They received about 18 inches in the prior 48 hours which definitely helped. Jenna, Ben, Barrett and Todd were all great. They love what they do and it's obvious within the first minute of meeting them. Their focus on safety and terrain conservation is admirable. By keeping our... More

Fabulous day skiing fields and trees of powder after a few giant dumps in Vail Pass. Thanks for loaning me those 130 powder skis, that made all the difference. Fun having lunch in the yurt! Barratt, thanks for digging me out of 3 ft of powder more than once! Is there any such thing as too deep!!! Ben & Jen,... More

If you are a skiing enthusiast, thrive for adventure and living life to its fullest. Then you are missing out if you don't try Cat Skiing just once! The whole crew as well as everyone on the tour made me feel safe and secure. Thank you for one of the top 5 best days of my life!

Absolutely the best day I have ever had on skis! We had 30+ inches during the 3 days prior to our trip so the powder was amazing. Great varied terrain for what was a very skilled and experienced group to enjoy. The wide open bowls above treeline with the sun peeking through were beautiful. The entire day from start to... More

We pulled into the parking lot and were greeted right away by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. They gave us a safety briefing and explained where they go and why based on the conditions. We started out on a moderate slope so they could get a feel for the group and determine the itinerary. We had a fairly advanced group... More

This is by far my favorite thing I've done in a decade at Vail. We skied fresh tracks all day - 10 runs - and Ben and crew were fantastic. They taught us about snow conditions and pampered us with a Yurt lunch and guided fresh turns. I wouldn't suggest it for beginner skiers, but it doesn't require double black... More

Vail Powder Guides are Awesome! Ben, Barrett and Bumpy and the rest of the crew really know how to provide an all day experience making fresh tracks in the Vail Pass back country! Whether it's one or two planks they really take care of you. I've been going with them for 5 years now and every time has been amazing.... More
