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.
What to bring
- Ski/Snowboard boots. Don’t forget to pack them in your hand luggage in case your baggage gets delayed or goes missing. We can provide you with skis and snowboards but NOT boots.
- Snowboard. We DO NOT have rental snowboards. Make sure you bring your own snowboard and it is in good working condition.
- Ski/Snowboard clothing. Dress in layers so you can cool off or warm up as needed.
- Extra gloves/goggles. Bring extra for yourself incase of breakage or very wet gloves.
- Powder Straps. Not essential but helpful if you lose a ski in deep powder.
What not to bring
- Skis. We have a selection of Skevik skis for you to use at no charge. These skis are made in Vernon B.C. Our fleet includes the Anton, Oda, and Loken. They are made for deep powder snow; you may just want to take a pair home. BRING YOUR OWN BOOTS.
- Avalanche transceivers. We have the best in avalanche transceivers and provide them to you at no cost.
- Avalanche airbag. We also provide you with the latest in avalanche protection for you to wear.
