The Bear Tracker Snowcat is a specially outfitted snowcat which transports up to 11 people plus 2-3 guides and driver into terrain adjacent to the ski resort that is often "closed" own or inconvenient to access. These areas usually have some the of the best, and untracked, snow conditions at the resort. The convenience of having a professional guide(s) lead you to the best snow, and a snowcat greet you at the bottom of a run is unmatched. Space is limited and advanced reservations are highly recommended - Call our main office 888.797.6867 or register for our Snowcat Alert
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 seldom skied terrain, or want to extend their season.
All Bear Valley Cat Skiing days are set up as private groups for you and your friends, 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 is to 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 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 great Tahoe snow without any of the infamous Tahoe crowds.
All trips include either two or three professional ski guides or one or two guides 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.
