Snowcat skiing with Steamboat Powdercats is a unique experience, one that may reward you with the best day of skiing in your life. Though Mother Nature holds the cards to how powder rich your day will be, Steamboat Powdercats has put together a system with friendly guides, cats and infrastructure that should provide you with an excellent day in the Steamboat backcountry. 3 Heated snowcats allow Steamboat Powdercats to group guests by skiing ability so everyone is at their comfortable level. Located on Buffalo Pass, the terrain is conveniently just 20-min from downtown Steamboat Springs, so guests are typically cat skiing by 9:15 am. The skiing terrain is matched to the ability level of the group so it's very important to be honest with us when placing you and your group into our cats. All inclusive tours include everything you'll need for a day in the backcountry, plus photos are included!

If your looking for fresh Powder this is a must. Heated snowcats on Buff Mountain. Back Country skiers paradise. Tons of snowmobile skiing same terrain. Pick your day wisely for best results.

If you are looking for a premium ski experience away from the resort, look no further. Have been coming back to the Powdercats for years and they never disappoint. It helps to be lucky with Mother Nature but even in substandard conditions their expert guides...More

Steamboat Powdercats is an extremely professional organization with great service. I was particularly impressed that they were able to find fresh snow throughout the day, despite the lack of fresh snowfall the week prior. The guides keep excellent track of where they've been so they...More

Really excellent outfit. They customized the runs to exactly what the group could handle, and made the day really fun. Super professional, courteous and great attitudes all around. Could not have been better. Can't wait to get back.

Despite no fresh snow for several days prior to our outing, Steamboat Powdercats delivered a terrific day in the backwoods. A blue sky day and professional guides delivered fun, challenges and untracked snow - run after run. A class organization and well run -
