Big Red Cats


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.
  • Off the Beaten Track
  • Powder

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.

Ski Safari Sales Manager, Andy Knights, spent a day exploring some of British Columbia's incredible terrain with the Big Red Cats crew this winter. Read about it as part of his experience of Going Deep into the Powder Triangle.

"Having first hit the hill with Big Red Cats on their opening day, 14 years on these guys really do still have The Magic (experienced first-hand by my colleague Andy this winter). Over a decade later they're undoubtedly still one of the best cat skiing operations in Canada."
