Cat Skiing

For a fabulous backcountry addition to your Schweitzer adventures, try cat skiing! There are 4,350 more acres to discover as you’re transported in Selkirk Powder’s comfortable 10-passenger snowcats. Typical tours include 8-12 runs while achieving up to 14,000 vertical feet in the west-facing bowls adjacent to the resort. Riders should be advanced intermediates or better, and be prepared to ski natural conditions in trees or powder-laden open fields and bowls.

Their licensed guides take you on a variety of tours that include plenty of opportunities to take in the amazing backdrop of the Selkirk and Cabinet mountain ranges as well as unparalleled views of Lake Pend Oreille. And novice riders are welcome too, as tours are crafted for each group’s skill level and sightseeing wishes. Give Selkirk Powder a call for a perfect excursion that’s just a chairlift ride away!
