snow cat skiing for powder in the Cascades with Mountain Madness

Alpine Lakes High Camp Skiing

Come for a Day of Snow Cat Skiing, or Stay a While and skin to your heart’s content- Access to Acres of PRIVATE Ungroomed Backcountry Trails

From the doorsteps of your rus­tic cab­in high in the Cas­cades, epic back­coun­try ski and snow­board ter­rain is just a step away. You’ll delight in the open glades, nar­row chutes, and gen­tle bowls on runs like Heart Stop­per, Wild Bill, and Big Rock Bowl. With access to ter­rain just shy of 7,000 feet, there are secret stash­es of pow­der to be found when con­di­tions aren’t as good at low­er ele­va­tions. The cold­er east side of the moun­tains almost always deliv­ers the pow­der goods!

Snow Cat Ski Option:

Grab your gang of ski­ing and snow­board bud­dies and let the snow cat get you mov­ing up the hill and all you have to do is point it down­hill. One day Sat­ur­day option is avail­able or you can stay a few days and mix it up with skin­ning or some cat rides. Lots of options for lots turns!

At the end of the day, a hot fire in one the cab­ins you’ll be stay­ing in pro­vides a com­fy place to reflect on the day’s turns, enjoy a hot meal, and kick your feet up with a glass of wine! The sim­ple life awaits, with lots of turns, a chance to get off-the-grid and unplug, and a mem­o­ry of a life­time in the wild win­ter land­scape of the Cas­cade Moun­tains. See pric­ing and details here.
