When does the Mt. Kirkup Cat operate?
The Mt Kirkup Cat operates every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm. Operations generally start around mid-January, conditions permitting. Please know there are no refunds for unused Kirkup Cat tickets.
What is the terrain like & what ability level is required?
The terrain in the Mt. Kirkup area provides our guests with open runs, tree skiing and rolling advanced terrain. Skiers and snowboarders should be able to make strong carving turns on all blue and black ungroomed runs. All riders should be capable of short turns, adapting to varied terrain including off-piste trees, powder and more complex terrain. All riders must also be able to shout to their friends, like, five times per run, “Dude! Did you see me?!”
How many cats do you operate per day?
We operate one cat per day which will make approximately 6-8 trips per day. Directions for pick up are available in our Cat Skiing brochure. Services provided include ski patrol, avalanche control, end of the day sweeping inbounds and out-of-bounds signage and route mapping.
