Big Red Cats

Summary

Summary

Based out of Red Mountain Resort in British Columbia, Big Red Cats has some of the best glade skiing in the world and the largest snowcat road network to access it.

Glade skiing offers incredibly consistent powder as it's less affected by wind and sun, and it's also some of the most fun with plenty of natural features to play with. Plus, thanks to the tree cover down days are practically unheard of! Big Red Cats have four trips to choose from for different abilities: from Intermediate for your first step into the backcountry up to Uber-Expert for those who want jumps and drops all day long.

Red is the perfect resort to warm up in, offering some of the deepest, steepest lift-accessed powder in the world.
