Cat Skiing in Beautiful British Columbia

armada-lodge-by-night-smallSkiing, Safety and good Service

We provide cat skiing in the Monashee Mountains of British Columbia. Deep untracked powder skiing, a comfortable remote mountain lodge, over 30’000 acres of terrain, 443 km of snow road, incredible gourmet food, an extensive BC wine list, and a hot-tub under the stars. That’s exactly what is in store for you with a cat ski adventure at Mustang Powder.

We are not a regular cat ski operation. We have a ridiculous amount of usable ski terrain and consequently offer guests a unique and exclusive experience. We now have 3 different ski programs at Mustang.

todd-ligare-smallNew Program – Small Private Groups

Imagine a large comfortable passenger cab for just you and five or six of your friends. We believe that our new private group program is the finest cat skiing experience on the planet.

You can ski steep or gentle, quickly or slowly – the choice is yours. Once again, Mustang is taking cat-skiing to a new level. Read more about Private Group Cat Skiing.

Small Groups, Steep Chutes

In 2010/2011 we added a “Small Groups, Steep Chutes” program to the roster – a third snowcat with only 6 guests skiing big, steep, challenging and interesting runs, with some ski touring thrown in as well.

The program was a great success and will be back again this year. Find out more about our Small Groups – Steep Chutes program.

Regular Cat Skiing

Regular Cat SkiingThe Regular program is a snowcat with 12 guests aboard. This has been the standard model for the Cat Skiing industry for many decades, and is an excellent and affordable option.

You have the choice of forming a full group of 12 of your friends, or booking as a solo, couple or small group – and we will slot you into a cat with other guests.

Check our availability section to see when our programs are available. Read more about Regular Cat Skiing .

We cater to the Strong and Keen Skiers / Snowboarders

Please be aware that even in the regular cat skiing program our policy at Mustang Powder is to cater to the strong, keen skiers and snowboarders. You should be an expert skier, or at a minimum a very strong and fit Intermediate.

All Snowboarders and Telemarkers MUST be experts and very fit. Less skilled or less fit guests may be asked to sit out some of the steeper runs and/or take some rest breaks by riding down in the front of the snowcat with the driver (so they don’t hold up the group).

Lots of Heli/Cat operators cater to the Casual ski crowd who ski just a little each year – we do not. Mustang is not a good choice if you want a relaxed pace and like to continually stop and take photos. Mustang is for the hard-core skiers and snowboarders who are passionate about the sport and ski a lot each year. Unlike heliskiing, we don’t usually track our daily vertical feet. However, on February 27, 2017, a group of 12 guests did 30,145 vertical feet in just over 8 hours of cat skiing. A more typical day is 20,000 vertical feet.

Snow warning! Mustang receives a lot more snow than most other Heli/Cat operations in BC. Consequently, snowboarders and telemarkers often struggle when they come to us. Please  be aware of this.


Last season, the talented Canadian Coloratura soprano Suzanne Rigden, accompanied by pianist Phil Chiu, and Noncerto visited Mustang Powder to record a video in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. Noncerto has filmed 150 videos in the 10 provinces across the country and we are proud to have been involved one of the videos representing beautiful British Columbia. Listen, watch and enjoy!
