ONLINE RESERVATIONS OPEN AT MIDNIGHT ON OCTOBER 15th, 2017.
Anthony Lakes offers the most phenomenal cat trips around. With the highest base elevation in Oregon (7100 feet), the Anthony Lakes Ski Area boasts the best powder and amazing scenery! There is no better way to experience, fresh, un-tracked powder, than to book a seat on one of our cat trips.
When do cat trips run? ALMR cat trips typically start mid-January and run through March (snowpack dependent). Trips run during our operating days, Thursday through Sundays, leaving the base area at 8am and returning by 4pm.
What is the terrain like? The Anthony Lakes Cat Ski terrain accesses 2,000 acres of variable terrain, including steeps, bowls, glades and other fun and dynamic areas. Skiable terrain always depends on weather, snowfall, and conditions.
What level skier/rider do I need to be? You must be an intermediate or advanced skier/rider and able to ski in all weather and snow conditions, especially powder as there is no grooming. It is not recommended that this be your first powder experience.
What is included? Do I need my own beacon/shovel/probe/backpack? All trips include the use of a beacon. Shovels and probes are available as well. There is room on the cat for you to bring a small pack. Lunch, snacks, water, and hot chocolate are provided for full day trips.
Are powder skis available to rent or demo? Anthony Lakes has a very small quantity demo powder skis available. If you are traveling from out of the area, it is recommended that you bring skis with you.
How many people can go on a trip? Ladybug (our beloved snowcat) holds 12 guests. Note: there is minimum of 8 guests required to get a trip out. (This can be your group, or a combination of groups/individuals).
How much is it? Full day trips are $199/person and half-day trips (when available) are $89/person (+ guide gratuities).
Are there any discounts available? If you reserve the entire cat (12 seats), then you receive the 12th seat free. Season Pass holders save $50 off full day cat skiing tours and $30 off half-day cat skiing tours! Another great reason to be an Anthony Lakes Season Pass holder!
When is the best time to book a trip? As with many areas in the Northwest, weather changes rapidly. We see great snow well into spring some years, and sometimes we are stuck in high pressure in January. Regardless, our cat trips have a great experience just getting out to ski/ride with friends!
Does ALMR guarantee conditions? Anthony Lakes cannot guarantee conditions. As per the above, weather and conditions change quickly at high elevations. Should Anthony Lakes management deem conditions unskiable, the trip will be cancelled.
How do I book a trip? Cat trip reservations begin at midnight on October 15, for the upcoming season. Reservations are made online and/or by contacting email@example.com. Reservations are required.
