Cat Skiing

Cat skiing involves conveying people up a mountain in a snowcat, the same heavy machine that is used for grooming the slopes of commercial snow resorts. The use of a snowcat allows people to ski or ride fresh, untracked backcountry terrain, without the effort and equipment required for ski touring, or foot-travel.

Cat Skiing Cat skiing involves conveying people up a mountain in a snowcat, the same heavy machine that is used for grooming the slopes of commercial snow resorts. The use of a snowcat allows people to ski or ride fresh, untracked backcountry terrain, without the effort and equipment required for ski touring, or foot - travel. It is also more economical and environmentally friendly than heliskiing, which involves commuting to the top of a mountain by helicopter. First started in 1975 in Meadow Cr eek, BC, cat skiing has grown to 20 operations in BC, more than 40 worldwide, and hosts

more than 40 000 visitors each season. White Grizzly Cat Skiing caters to a maximum of 12 guests per day, which means our unique services are only experienced by approx imately 200 guests each winter. The Art of Cat Skiing The White Grizzly experience is one created by forethought, dedication to the craft, connection to the natural surroundings, inspiration via many essences, precise attention to detail, years of im provement on technique and training. White Grizzly is the Art of Cat Skiing. In March of 2012, Carole and Brad hosted Winter Dreams, a five - day event that

launched the incorporation of live - art into the White Grizzly Cat Skiing experience for those who des ire it. Each day, an artist in residence went out on the mountain with the group, and the artist’s current works were on display at the Lodge and available for purchase. Guests may even commission particular scenes or portraits on the mountain. Carole bega n to envision an evolution of art with skiing while working as the marketing manager of Le Massif Ski Area in Quebec. But she wanted to go beyond using resident - art as promotional material for her business, and create an

opportunity where skiers could deve lop their own relationship with the art, and the artist. She feels this will allow them to appreciate their own experiences more deeply. She says: Art brings people to observe more profoundly their surroundings, and appreciate the details of nature…” Th e current artist, Jean - François Racine, is a Quebec - born painter who combines his passion for skiing and painting into lifelike mountain scenes. He has extensive experience working with people in live settings; he has painted on the slopes of winter resort s around the country.

His art revels in the beauty of nature, and conveys the joy many Canadian find in winter. He is most renowned for his ability to capture vivid patterns of light and colour, and his works can be found in many Canadian galleries and mus eums. Jean - François Racine's website.
