Our Guides

Our ski guides love their jobs, who wouldn’t? Not only do we ski and ride powder for a living, but on a daily basis we get to see the smile on your faces while helping to satisfy a combined passion for getting deep in the fresh powder of the Steamboat backcountry.

You will find that we are skilled, professional, backcountry leaders. Our goals are to provide the safest tour while allowing for a fun filled experience. Our guides have a minimum of Outdoor Emergency Care and Level I snow safety training. Several of our staff are advanced snow safety professionals and instructors with AIARE – The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education.

Your guides are also: parents, some of us are grandparents, loyal Steamboat Springs residents, carpenters, comedians, fisherman, raft guides, EMT’s, politicians, real estate agents, mountain bike racers, landscapers, excavators, long distance hikers, entrepreneurs, writers, dedicated ski bums, surfers, vagabonding travelers, building managers, professors and photo journalists.

Most of our guides have been with Steamboat Powdercats for many years and we have become close friends united in what is Steamboat Powdercats.
