Chatter Creek’s cat skiing and cat boarding terrain extends over 238 square kilometres and consists of tree runs, old burns, wide open alpine areas and glacier skiing. Most of Chatter Creek’s ski terrain is between 1500m and 2900m (4900ft and 9500ft) above sea level. The higher elevation ensures that the temperatures remain colder, the snow stays light and dry and is ideal for skiing or snowboarding. You get the snow you want and lots of it.
Our Vertebrae Glacier is one of the most outstanding glacier skiing experiences in the world. Few cat skiing operations have access to such an incredible wonder! Guests enjoy runs of up to 3500ft of uninterrupted vertical descent while enjoying the most amazing views of the Sullivan fault, the Clemenceau Glacier and Mount Columbia. The turn around times for pick up are extremely fast as the road glides through the glacier, and before you make it to the bottom our cat operator is ready to take you up for yet another outstanding run. On a beautiful day, to ski the Vertebrae Glacier brings new meaning to the “mountain high” experience!
Our guides choose where to take our guests based upon snow stability, weather conditions and the ability of the group. We ask that our guests be strong intermediate skiers and boarders. Whether you are in the trees or high up in the alpine, you can always expect to find lots of untracked powder.
