Mustang Powder is easily accessible by major highways from either the east or the west. Regional and international airline service is also available to Kelowna International Airport with direct flights from Vancouver, Calgary, Seattle, Toronto and Honolulu. Car rentals are available at the airport, or for larger groups, bus service may also be obtained.
We cater to the Strong, Keen Skiers and 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, at minimum, a very strong and fit intermediate skier or snowboarder.
All snowboarders and telemarkers MUST be confident riding and skiing in deep powder and confidently able to traverse across stretches of terrain. All skiers and riders must be comfortable in deep powder snow and should be very fit. Less skilled or less fit guests may be asked to sit out steeper runs or take rest breaks by riding down in the front of the snowcat with the driver so they don’t hold up the group.
Many Heli and Cat operations 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 skied 30,145 vertical feet in just over 8 hours of cat skiing. Many groups ski 20,000+ vertical feet each day.
The magnificent timber frame construction of the Mustang Lodge is a work of art. The high elevation of the lodge (5700 ft / 1740m) means that the views from the lounge, dining room and bedrooms are spectacular. In the morning we drop-off for our first run 5 to 10 minutes from the lodge. All guests have private bathrooms, with some single bedrooms also available.
Mustang Powder guests will meet off of Avoca Rd, 44 km west of Revelstoke or 28 km east of Sicamous. This is near Craigallachie, site of the “last spike” in the Canadian Pacific Railroad. Guest vehicles will be left in our parking lot off of Avoca Rd.
Please note: All guests are flown to and from the lodge via helicopter transfer, weather permitting. The cost is $110.00 CAD each way. Since the helicopter flights are weather dependent, this cost will be paid directly to Glacier Helicopters at the end of your trip once we know if you were able to fly in and out. Snowcat transfers will be done on no-fly days at no cost.
