The opportunity of a lifetime? Citing health reasons, the owners of Big Red Cats catskiing operation, located in the Monashee Range near Rossland, BC, have just put their business on the market––for $4-million.
Cat skiing at Big Red Cats is all about the powder! With 19,300 acres and 8 mountains offering some of the best tree skiing and glades in the world, you can choose from separate trips for Expert, Advanced, and Intermediate skiers and riders (even “Uber Expert” if you dare!) – to get the level of adventure that you’re looking for, or put a group of 12 together and get one seat free!
Choose from small and social lodging such as the Red Shutter Inn and cabin at Red Mountain, to group accommodation like the Big Red Lodge or modern and comfortable slopeside condos – you can book our lodging, or stay wherever you like and just book cat skiing with us. Spend every day out in the cats, or alternate with days at Red Mountain and nearby Whitewater resorts – both also renowned for their bountiful powder and interesting off-piste terrain, in Rossland and Nelson, voted #1 Ski Towns by Powder Magazine!
Enjoy après ski at our “Fresh” clubhouse. Great for breakfast and coffee before skiing, you can meet your guide here in the morning before jumping on the free shuttle to the snowcats. Request a photographer, and enjoy your ski photos on the big screen over apres beverages and snacks, and come later in the evening for an excellent dinner.
Safety is our main concern, but fun is what it’s all about! Our guides all have CSGA, ACMG or international equivalent guide qualifications and CAA professional avalanche training, and our year-round mechanic makes sure that we always have 6 powdercats ready to go, so that there is always a backup, and no mechanical down days.
