Discover what makes Park City one of the best places to ski in the United States and spend a day or more on an unforgettable backcountry skiing trip! This guided program utilizes snowcats to deliver you to the purest untouched snow for run after run of unparalleled skiing!

Set in the Uinta Mountains east of Park City, this remote and immense Utah landscape offers awe-inspiring scenery just waiting to be found. The subrange of the Rockies is known for its high-altitude peaks from 3,300 meters up to its tallest summit, Kings Peak, at 4,123 meters. This makes for delectable skiing conditions with long open runs, a diverse terrain, and jaw-dropping views.

And then there’s the snow. The perfect balance between weight and moisture make for comfortable skiing, with special thanks to the generous more-than-12-meter snowfall the region averages each year. With over 40,000 acres of skiable terrain, accommodating slopes, and lengthy vertical lines, the Uinta Mountain region is sure to give you some of the best skiing of your life.

Your program takes this dream ski vacation one step further and places you right into the heart of the snow via snowcats. By catskiing your way through the incredible powder, you won’t have to worry about overrun tracks and waiting in line. The backcountry is yours to explore, with nothing but premium ski conditions.

Your catskiing adventure features many popular objectives with alpine bowls and glades. Common ski spots include Windy Peak and M&M Bowl, but there are tons of other locations to fit your skiing needs and abilities. The use of the snowcat is vital in getting you to the right place for the right route, again and again.

This program is for intermediate and advanced off-piste cat skiers who are comfortable in an isolated backcountry. You should be in good shape to take part in this trip.

The wilderness here is a skiing paradise, and I love sharing it with other snow athletes. Our catskiing program will be nothing but good, safe, old-fashioned fun in high quality snow without the crowds. If you want to extend your program past a day, I would be happy to accommodate and help you create the ski trip you’ve always wanted. You are sure to remember this program and the Uinta long after you leave the mountains.

Book this unforgettable day of catskiing NOW and spend a day or more exploring every nook and cranny in the Uinta Mountains of Utah and their overwhelming beauty!

If you have the time, we can also go to Salt Lake City for three days of sweet introductory backcountry skiing!

What people are saying about -Todd


I have booked the backcountry ski for 3 days and did only 1/2 - 1 day. Hiking uphill is much too exhausting for me, although I am in reasonable condition. For sure this must be much better communicated towards customers, that they need in ultimate condition. So spending 1200 USDollars and having only '1 day done' is not a great experience. Can I get some of the money back?



Todd is a very experienced guide who knows the area like the palm of his hand. He tailored a plan that adapted perfectly to the conditions and our group, and he got us to some great powder even after 1 week since the last snowfall! We had a great time and I will for sure call Todd again next year when I return to Utah!
