Join me for this one day or multi-day catskiing trip in Hurley Pass, starting from Pemberton, one hour north from Whistler!

The Hurley Pass is in British Columbia, Canada. It lies in the north of Pemberton in the south of Chilcotin Mountains.

Actually, Pemberton will be the meeting place for this trip.

Once there, we’ll leave our cars in our staging area at the bottom of the mountain. From there, we’ll travel by snowmobile to our Lodge (‘Snowcats Lodge’) in time for a generous dinner and a good night’s rest.

The Hurley pass will be the place for our cat skiing adventure. It offers a skiing terrain for all levels, from intermediate to advanced. It also has options for extreme skiers as well as snowboarders. In fact, the area has 15,000 acres for you to enjoy with an incredible variety of runs.

We will choose between trees or alpine areas depending on the weather. One of the most unique areas is the ‘Black Forest’, with its gloomy but shredable trees.

For this trip, you can choose between 2, 3, or 4 days of skiing or snowboarding. All of them include unlimited vertical.

The lodge allows you to adapt the trip to your very specific needs. If you want to spend more time, I’ll be happy to arrange a trip that fits your schedule. Or round out your trip by adding other activities, such as snowmobiling, ski touring, and snowshoeing.

Please contact me with your trip details. I’ll be happy to help you start organizing a catskiing program to this beautiful area of Canada!

I also organize other trips here in Canada. You can check some of them, like this steep skiing clinic in Blackcomb or this spearhead ski touring traverse in Whistler.

The safety is the highest priority. I follow you down the mountain each run to assist you if you should need help. I have avalanche and first aid certification.

The lodge is a member of good standing with Helicat Canada.

Many people worry that they are not a strong enough skier or boarder to meet the challenge of the backcountry, however if you enjoy a day of lift serviced skiing then you will LOVE a day of skiing with here. I set a pace and choose the runs that everybody in the group will enjoy and I will give you powder skiing pointers that make it easy. There are also “fat” skis available for rent that will make the powder easy!
