Private Cat Skiing Program Bear Valley, California
1 Day /Up to 6 Skiers / Cost: $2,850/$285 per Additional Skier up to 11 total
The Bear Valley Cat Skiing program offers the opportunity to ski some of the best-untracked powder skiing in the Central Sierra. We are located just below Ebbetts Pass and situated between the Mokelumne and Carson-Iceberg Wilderness Areas. Here Bear Valley can receive some of the best snow in the Central Sierra without any of the typical Tahoe crowds. Cat days offer a unique guided backcountry experience into rarely skied areas away from the crowds. The private cat skiing tours are perfect for those who are chasing powder, want rarely skied terrain, or just want to extend their season.
All Bear Valley Cat Skiing days are set up as private groups for you and your friends, in order to maximize your skiing, without the hassles of having another party slow down your day. Despite being a private program this offers one of the most reasonably priced skiing programs in the country. At a base price of $2,850, we can accommodate a group of up to six skiers. Add up to 5 additional skiers for just $285 per skier and lower the per person cost for your entire group.
A typical day of Bear Valley Cat Skiing starts before the ski resort opens. Our team of guides and patrollers meets to assess avalanche conditions and decide where the best snow will be found. Then quick meet and greet with the day’s skiers lead to an orientation of the machine and the terrain. We then head out to Bear Valley backcountry to beat the crowds for a better experience in our climate-controlled cab. We ski until mid-day when we break for a lunch on the snow. After a chance to recoup then we get back to all the goods the Mokelumne Valley has to offer.
Located less than 3 hours from the East Bay and only 2 hours from Sacramento we are the premier Cat Skiing programs in Northern California. Get all of the famous Tahoe snow without any of the infamous Tahoe crowds.
All trips include either two professional ski guides or a guide and a ski patroller, lunch on the snow, and a full day of guided skiing. A day of Bear Valley Cat Skiing is perfect for parties, groups of friends, corporate ski days, or just a way to break up the typical ski vacation.
