Catskiing by the Day
A great way to try cat skiing and experience some deep powder is a day trip up to Island Lake Lodge. The day starts with us picking you up in our parking lot, located 15 minutes from Fernie. We then do some some safety training before heading up to ski and snowboard some fresh powder. Food and drinks are available in the cat throughout the day.
Dayskiing usually happens in the early and late season. Call the office or join our day-skiing list

From Our Customers
I have gone to many cat/heli operations in the past but this is the top notch!
This is my return trip to Island Lake and this time 8 from Japan have joined me. Seclusion, access to variety ski terrains, snowfall, food and the entire experiences are very well balanced, and supported by professionals.
