Our customized snowcats are the perfect vehicle for your extended family or small group to enjoy a few hours traveling over mountain peaks through deep powder snow, stopping along the way to take pictures, perhaps even pitch a few snowballs, and learn natural history from one of our knowledgeable guides.
You’ll meet at our reception desk in the Lakeview Lodge in Schweitzer Village, where we’ll give you a brief introduction regarding your tour. Then you’ll be treated to an exhilarating chairlift ride up to our summit operations center where you’ll meet your guide and board our snowcat. These impressive pieces of equipment are usually used for shaping ski runs or trails, but we’ve modified them with custom cabins trimmed with huge viewing windows. And they’re furnished with padded seats for 10 adults, plenty of storage space and hooks for parkas and knapsacks. There’s in-the-round seating in the cabins along with a table, so we’re able to cater lunches from gourmet sandwiches, soups and teas to hot, oven-fresh pizza, if you wish.
