Chicago Ridge Snowcat Tours is operated by Ski Cooper on 2600 acres of open powder bowls, glades and timber in the San Isabel and White River National Forests. This is an area roughly the size of Vails Back Bowls, with similar length, pitch and vertical.
Guests soak in spectacular scenery as we climb along the Continental Divide with dozens of Colorados highest peaks in our view a beauty scene unlike any weve seen elsewhere. Well take you as high as 12,600 feet. The slopes vary from 3,000 to 10,000 feet in length with vertical drops up to 2,000 feet per run.
|CRST utilizes a pair of Bombardier snowcats with plush enclosed cabins to transport a maximum of 12 guests per day into our vast permit area. Experienced guides, each trained and certified in emergency medical care and snow safety, accompany every tour. Our guides are intimately familiar with the nuances of our terrain, and so are able to seek out and lead tours into the best snow available, all while providing a unique experience customized to best suit each tour group. Many of our guests have become friends, returning year after year. Much like historic and legendary Ski Cooper, CRST refrains from marketing hype and creating false expectations. We operate under a simple philosophy: deliver the goods, and leave our guests with a smile and a singular desire – to do it again. And again.
