big red cats Overview
Big Red Cats is one of the largest powdercat operations in the world, with qualified lead and tail guides, six cats, and 550 powder-filled runs that average 1,400 vertical feet. Separate groups for expert, advanced, intermediate, and über-expert skiers and riders. Funky lodges, luxury condos, and a great selection of restaurants await at our base at Red Mountain in Rossland. One- to seven-day packages available, with or without lodging and lifts.
Ski and ride all aspects of eight mountains. Steep lines with pillows and cliffs for experts, a combination of glades and bowls for advanced groups, and more low-angle runs with widely spaced trees for intermediates. Average run length is 1,400 feet, and you'll do 10 to 15 runs, depending on group speed.
The Bottom LineGuaranteed powder and flowing fall line glades and bowls.
