Aspen Snowcat Powder Tours

Without exception this was the most seamless day's cat-skiing day of my life. Mellow “recreational” terrain, super dry powder, incredible hosts, my first and only back country massage and food and wine you would expect in a fine dining restaurant, all enjoyed in the majestic Colorado Rocky Mountains.
