Our Skiing Programs
Hopefully the worst of covid is in the past. Mustang lodge is an enclosed and insular environment – both in the lodge and in snowcat cabs. We operate all winter during the cold and flu season. To keep our staff and guests healthy we highly recommend that all guests and staff are fully vaccinated and boosted for covid and seasonal flu. During your Mustang holiday the wearing of a mask in the snowcat cab or in the common areas of the lodge is optional. Anyone who has significant cold/flu symptoms should NOT come to the lodge, and if they are at the lodge should leave. If the covid situation worsens during the autumn or winter, we will adjust our policy accordingly and abide by any government rules on covid. We are anticipating another great ski season up at Mustang Powder Lodge. We look forward to seeing our returning guests again and meeting those of you who are coming to ski with us for the first time.
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.
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. The program has been a great success with a lot of first descents and sweet couloirs.
At Mustang Powder our #1 priority is your safety. We have developed a comprehensive safety program and have put together a team of guides made up of some the top and most influential professionals in the avalanche industry. All of our guides are members of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) as well as the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA), and many have been guiding for 20 plus years.

Be prepared for A LOT of deep snow! Our unique location in the Monashee Mountains of BC means we receive a lot more snow than most other Heli or Cat operations in the province. At Mustang Powder, it’s no secret that we cater to the strong skiers. Snowboarders must be expert riders. Guests booking with us must be experienced and comfortable skiing or riding in knee-deep powder snow, with the possibility of even more after a big snow cycle. Less ambitious guests will be encouraged to pace themselves or sit out some runs if they are tired.
