One aspect of our program that sets Vail Powder Guides apart from other snowcat operations is the minimal down-time (non-powder skiing time) there is in a typical day with us.
We ask our guest to meet us on Vail Pass at 8:30 AM. The snowcat departs no later 9:00AM and we are on top of our first run of the day by 9:40 and we are easily skiing before 10AM.
We often get 6-8 runs in BEFORE lunch.
Lunch is mid-afternoon at about 1:30 or 2PM and lasts for 30 minutes. Snacks and water are provided in the snowcat throughout the day.
After lunch, we usually ski another 2-4 runs.
We return you to Vail Pass and your vehicle between 4:00 and 4:30PM.
That is 8 hours with us and easily 10-12 runs per day.
