Snow Cat Skiing and Snowboarding
Cat skiing and Snowboarding are what we have built the business around. In addition to Multi-day catskiing, we also offer the following:
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 give a avalanche transceiver, some training and then we head 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
Spring Ski Touring
Island Lake is pleased to now offer cat-assisted, guided ski touring on our 7,000-acre property during April. A great mix of terrain including: alpine bowls and ridges, perfectly gladed trees and spectacular peaks make Island Lake a superb backcountry-touring destination.
