Snowcat Skiing at its Finest – Colorado Style
Backcountry Tours available
Snowcat skiing and riding with Steamboat Powdercats is a unique experience, one that may reward you with the best, on snow day, of your life. Though Mother Nature holds the cards to how powder-rich your day will be, we’ve put together a system of professional backcountry guides, plush snowcats and a dialed up infrastructure that should provide you with an excellent day in the Colorado backcountry.
Beyond snowcat skiing, we offer human powered Backcountry Tours where we spltboard or ski tour with you up into the terrain. These tours are custom and private to your group only.
We are very fortunate to call Buffalo Pass our home base. Conveniently located just 25 minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs and the Steamboat Ski Area, Buffalo Pass is known as Colorado’s deepest annual snowpack and has a multitude of north, south, east and west facing zones. Combine this with the famous Champagne Powder® that we are blessed with here in Northwest Colorado and we couldn’t have asked for a better location to offer up the Steamboat Powdercats experience.
At SPC we are dedicated to being leaders in the snowcat skiing industry.
We strive to build long lasting relationships with our guests and staff.
Creating exceptional experiences for all levels of skiers and riders
