Save time and let us plan an effective and memorable event for your group.
Sitting in the cat as it climbs up the mountain you look out the window. You see the snow getting deeper and deeper as you get closer to where you will be skiing or snowboarding, giving you butterflies. Seeing huge mountains all around brings back the feelings you had the first time you ever went into the mountains. Excitement, anticipation, nervousness, and best of all, exhilaration.
7:45 am - Meet at Gone Village Bakery to check in and sign your waiver. Be dressed and ready to ski except for your ski boots. We will have the coffee and hot chocolate ready. Gone Bakery is a great place to grab some breakfast before we head out on tour. Our 4x4 vans depart for Powder Mountain from the back of the bakery at 8:00 AM. We drive you and your equipment to our simple base lodge. The Powder Mountain Base Lodge is 20 minutes south of Whistler on Highway 99 at the Chance Creek turn off. Please be on time. You can never get back turns you missed.
8:00 am - Depart for "Your Best Day Ever"!
8:30am-8:45am - At our simple base lodge we have a cozy fireplace and bathroom facilities. After a short talk on the day's proceedings and a safety briefing regarding snowcat procedures, we load up the snowcat and head out into the backcountry.
9:15 am - 9:45 am - You step out of the snowcat and begin a quick orientation to make you feel comfortable and to ensure you are familiar with our safety procedures and equipment. After that, it's time to get our first taste of the day's snow. You will be at 6,500 feet altitude, clicking into your bindings for the first run of the day. The first run is always a mellow one to let everyone get warmed up. This allows the guides to get an idea of the ability level of the group. The groups' ability and snow conditions determine what kind of terrain and runs we will be riding.
3:00 pm - 3:30 pm - The end of your day depends more on the energy level of the group, snow and weather conditions etc, than what time it is. We ski down the cat road as a fun alternative to riding home in the snowcat. If you are feeling tired, you can also get back in the snowcat at any time on the ski-out for a ride home.
4:00 pm - You return to our base lodge and re-live the day checking out all the photos from the day, then transfer into our 4x4 vans and head back to Whistler.
4:30pm -5:00 pm - You are usually back in Whistler at the Gone Village Bakery around 4:30pm. Sometimes the weather makes for a slower drive back.
