Aspen Powder Tours

With Aspen Powder Tours you have the opportunity to ski or snowboard lots of untracked stashes on the backside of Aspen Mountain (Ajax). With a backcountry powder tour there are no lift lines, no hordes to elbow aside to get the freshies, and no hiking to get to the goods. A luxury snowcat takes you to the top of the primo terrain, and once the cat is away, the Powderhounds can play!

The Aspen cat skiing tours meet at 8:30 am in the Silver Queen gondola building at the base of Aspen Mountain. After a gondola ride to the top, the group is provided with a safety orientation by two guides before heading out in the snowcat.

A gourmet lunch is served in the backcountry at their very cosy hut and there are also toilets available at the lunch spot (very lux for a cat ski operation).

Ability & Age

There is no age limits young or old; as long as you are an athletic or aggressive intermediate skier / boarder who is comfortable on all blue square runs and groomed black runs or PSIA level 7. Kids under 18 must be accompanied by an adult guardian.
