Colorado’s largest snowcat operation, the San Juan Ski Company, is offering a rippin’ deal for skiers and riders who want to go big – fill a snowcat with a group of 12 and save $700 . And to sweeten the deal, the Durango Mountain Resort-based catskiing outfit is throwing in one free seat that can be used at a later date.

Owners Bob and Carrie Rule acknowledge that organizing a group of 12 skiers/snowboarders to commit to a date and cough up the cash for a deposit can be like herding cats in a blizzard. “We know how hard it is to get a group of 12 people together, so we wanted to compensate trip leaders and give them a free snowcat trip for rallying the group. It is our way of saying thank you,” said Bob Rule, lead guide and operation manager.
This offer is good throughout the season; so round up a posse of 12 powder slayers and catski for $290 per person, plus get one free seat. Price includes powder skis, lunch, snacks, and avy gear (BCA beacon, shovel, and shovel pack).
Groups can save even more if they book lodging at Durango Mountain Resort. Catskiing guests get 10 percent off lodging units, including ski in ski out, slope side, and nearby properties. Discounted lodging is not available during holidays.
The San Juan Ski Company caters to advanced and expert skiers. With 35,000-plus acres of permitted real estate, the SJSC offers some of the best catskiing in Colorado and the U.S.
