Snowcat Skiing at its Finest – Colorado Style

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.

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.

Out With A Bang!

March 27th, 2019|

Well, that's a wrap, folks! Today was, unfortunately, the last day of glorious guided backcountry cat skiing for the 2018/2019 season. That boils down to 108 days of operation. Each of our cats ran for approximately 750 hours this season, and they provided all of us nearly 50,000 snowcat runs!!!

Fun In The Sun Continues

March 26th, 2019|

Day two of enjoying our recent refresh and boy does it feel good to drop some layers and get a little sweat on while ripping up our terrain before the season is over! Though the end is near, we have countless days to reflect on that were nothing short of EPIC.

Back In Action!

March 25th, 2019|

The fresh snow we received, on top of the sun crust from last week, was skiing SUPER fast and with the terrain being completely untouched, we had a heck of a day!! From wide open faces on the south/east ridges to tight pines with scattered cliffs on the north, we skied it all! 

Out Like A Lamb

March 21st, 2019|

The month of March has developed just as they said it would! We started off with back-to-back snow storms and cold temps and are just starting to mellow out with sunny skies and some warmer temps.
