Backcountry Snowcats is a Cat Skiing and Snowboarding operation in British Columbia’s South Chilcotin Mountains just to the north of Whistler. The terrain at Backcountry Snowcats is radically good. Some of the best in the world, even, according to the shredders who have frequented our slopes. Catering for all levels of intermediate, advanced, and expert skiers and snowboarders, the tenure covers 15,000 acres of epic alpine and tree skiing terrain for the best time whatever the conditions. The base elevation is at 1500 metres (5000 feet) and our alpine reaches to 2550 metres (8370 feet).

The weather there is colder and drier than nearby Whistler (30 kms away) but gets all of the same storm cycles. It snows on average 10m (32ft) of cold dry snow per season accumulating up to 3.5m (11.5ft) base, making the terrain prime for skiing and riding.

They offer 2, 3 and 4 day trips.
