Just wanted to share some pics from a recent day of catskiing at Powder Mountain near Whistler. I'm used to hiking for powder, so it was a real treat to have fresh tracks all day and a cat waiting at the bottom to bring me to the top for more.
The guide said there was about 40 cm of fresh on top of an already big base (especially for the time of year). I can honestly say it was some of the deepest snow I've ever skied in. Weather was overcast with light snow and visibility was fine all day.
Our group had 9 people plus 2 guides. We did 9 runs (7 longer, 2 shorter) and 7,750 feet of vertical (according to my GPS watch).
Runs were mostly in the trees, but usually included more open sections at some point during the run. The spacing between the trees was good. Certainly more space than I'm used to when skiing trees. We did get to ski a nice big open bowl called the "Big Kahuna".
Overall, a great day and the folks at Powder Mountain were top notch from beginning to end. Highly recommended!
