At Big Red Cats, snowcats transport groups of 12–14 skiers to the tops of eight mountains for full days of runs through untracked snow. Over the course of 6–16 adrenaline-pumping runs, adventurers can plow through vigilante snowmen and explore mountains that stretch across 19,300 acres of terrain. After each run, the cat awaits skiers at the bottom of the mountain, ready to transport them back up to discover another of the crags' more than 500 runs. The staff organizes ski trips by experience level, so expert skiers can zip across pillows and cliffs and intermediate skiers can navigate bowls and spaced trees. A full-time snow-safety team assists skiers as needed and discourages overeager tots from yodeling into megaphones.
Over the course of their daylong odyssey, patrons will enjoy an included lunch inside the snowcat during an ascent back toward the mountain peak. Visitors staying for two days of cat skiing unwind in comfy lodging at the Red Shutter Inn and prepare for the day's expedition with an included breakfast. Though rentals are not included in this Groupon, skis and poles can be rented for $39 and $5 per day, respectively.
