Catskiing and Boarding is just like heliskiing except we travel up the mountain in our snowcat, which offers easy access to the same high quality snow as helskiing - for around half the price\! The Alpure Snowcat is just like the one you see at a ski resort, except ours has been fitted with a custom built, fully enclosed rear canopy, with forward facing seats. This powerful machine is able to transport you virtually anywhere - AND it also builds jumps with ease. Your day begins at 8.30 with a briefing at base of access road and you will be supplied with an avalanche transceiver and given full safety instructions. our board our Hagglund for the 30 minute shuttle ride up the mountain and transfer to the Snowcat which takes you to where you can start your descents. Your guide will help you with planning these, during the journey. We aim to provide as many runs as possible, given snow conditions and the speed of your group. Lunch is around midday with the final run about 3pm.
