Snowcat skiing and riding is different from your typical ski resort visits. The snowcat essentially is your ski locker, where you can store your additional layers, extra goggles, and other personal equipment instead of bringing it with you on each run. Additionally, the cat cab is heated and multiple individuals will add to that temperature fluctuation. This will ultimately effect what you plan to bring and how snow will affect your gear (i.e. ice buildup on ski boots.) Keep in mind that it still can be quite cold up on Jones Pass and you should be prepared for that. We want everyone to have a great time!

There are, however, some ability issues that should be mentioned. Nobody wants to hold up the rest of the group on a powder day, so here are a few things to consider prior to booking: 

 - All guests should be in good physical condition. You will be skiing backcountry powder at high elevations and it demands a lot from your body.

- **We do not groom any runs!**

- Guests should be comfortable skiing expert runs at developed resorts. Our choice of terrain each day is based on avalanche hazard, snow conditions and skier/rider ability. Guests should be of advanced and expert ability and able to ski in variable snow conditions on a variety of terrain.
