Snowcat Skiing

As the locals know, the best skiing and snowboarding isn’t always found at the top of a lift.  If you hunger for fresh, untouched powder, Winter Park's closest snowcat skiing operator, Jones Pass Guides (formerly known as Powder Addiction), offers all-day, guided backcountry skiing & snowboarding experiences.

Jones Pass is located in the Front Range mountains, on the east side of the Continental Divide; Jones Pass Guides operate on a variety of terrain that ranges in elevation from 10,500 feet to 12,500 feet.  Ski routes are determined on group ability and snow conditions, but skiers and riders can count on getting between 7-12 runs during their day's trip in the mountains.  Jones Pass Guides operate on a guide to guest ratio of 1:6.

Day trips are operated on an all-inclusive basis, offering participants demo powder skis, safety gear, lunch and a celebratory beverage at the end of the day.  You can also request a photographer to accompany your trip to capture those once in a lifetime moments.
