Catskiing Trip Checklist
How to prepare
Catskiing is physically demanding. It may be beneficial to start a physical conditioning routine for a couple of months prior to your arrival.
Practice makes perfect. You should have several days in at your local resort before jumping in the cat. We also recommend a day or two at Silver Star Mountain Resort or Big White so you can get a taste of the terrain you will experience at Keefer Lake Lodge Catskiing.
