Shawn and John (aka Papa Smurf) were very friendly and helpful. The scenery was gorgeous and we couldn't have had better weather! We didn't get to see any wildlife on our trip. But, we're told that it isn't uncommon to see moose, deer or elk on a tour. The only thing I would change about our tour is to make... More

There was a chance that the trip might still be good so we made our way up to the mountain. Our guide and cat driver attempted to find us a location that... More

This is our second trip with this terrific company--we were celebrating a birthday and decided to make a weekend out of this adventure. We checked into our hotel at the bottom of Schweitzer, and headed up to the ski lift. We were whisked up to the top of the mountain, where the views were nothing short of spectacular.(The launch point... More

Our family is from Kansas so not too much in the way of winter fun here. We did the short snowmobile tour with Selkirk Powder Company. What an awesome experience!!! These people are so friendly. Turns out the lady checking us in grew up about a mile from where we currently live. My wife and her were instant best friends.... More

Once again had a great day with Kenny and Selkirk Powder at Schweitzer Mountain Resort. Untracked lines all day and a fun group from all over. In my opinion this is the best cat skiing acccessed from a lift at SMR. Can't wait for the heli action to start!!
