Update on COVID 19 Plans for 2021:


  • Early season 15% discount extended to 21 Jan

  • Small private group options

  • Separation and spacing including divided cats

  • Flexible booking policies

There's no reason why you shouldn't book your next cat skiing trip now! Here are some of the things we are introducing to keep you safe from Covid this year.

What a deal!
We've extended low season to run from 27 Dec to 21 Jan - and increased the discount to 15% as an incentive to book during this quiet time.  This applies to single-seat and group bookings!

We are introducing Private Cat deals for smaller groups of 6 to 12 - start with the 6-pack to secure your cat, and we can adjust the rate as you add more people. 
The  more you have, the less per person, but even the rate for 6 is outstanding value for a private group:


Private Group Pricing (CDN)
High season starts 22 Jan

# High Each Low Each
6 $4,600 $767 $3,910 $652
8 $5,600 $700 $4,760 $595
9 $6,000 $667 $5,100 $567
10 $6,200 $620 $5,270 $527
11 $6,400 $582 $5,440 $495
12 $6,600 $550 $5,610 $468

Add lodging from any of our local providers, to create a safe social bubble for your group in your own separate house or condo, or rent the entire Red Shutter Inn, which will also introduce graduated pricing for full-lodge rentals, as we try to minimize guest overlap.

Daily Routine:
Skip the usual office check-in, but prefilling our upcoming online waivers in advance, and go straight to your bus.  Each snowcat groups has its own separate bus, with staggered arrival times, so you minimize your mixing with others.  You are also welcome to drive your own vehicles to the staging area if you prefer.

Please bring a face mask, though buffs are available for purchase, and are better than nothing if you don't have a mask.

Divided cat cabins:  we are installing plexiglass dividers in two of our cat cabins, between the front and back row, and have two separate doors, in order to minimize vapour spread. These will be used mainly for the mixed groups, while private groups keep the open cabin.  We are also looking to improve ventilation systems. Cats are sanitized and aired out each evening.

Apres-ski and dining:
We’re operating at 50% capacity in the Fresh Clubhouse to increase physical distancing.  Book your table for apres-ski in advance, so that you are not turned away.  You can also pre-order your apres and dinner orders if you would like, and take-out is available, if you prefer to take it back to your condo.
Food service is compliant with procedures set forth by the Restaurant Association of Canada, with increased cleaning and sanitation.

Flexible booking policy
This year only, instead of paying a 30% non-refundable booking deposit, it is only 5% - about C$32, or US$23 per seat.  That's low enough that you could probably just walk away from it if you had to, but if you book now, and then 90 days before your trip circumstances don't allow you to commit and pay the full remainder, you won't lose the deposit.  You can just release the booking, and carry that deposit forward to a future booking. 

If you do go through with the booking and pay the full amount, it is not refundable, but if CV-19 restrictions crop up again and you need to change plans, we will allow you to reschedule your booking later in the season or to the following season.  No-shows are not reschedulable or refundable.

Need a refund?  Normally we just offer rain checks, but if you choose to purchase optional cancellation insurance for $100/seat, you have the option for a refund at any time for any reason.  Still a great deal.
