Powder Tour

Love Powder? Of course you do. So take an Aspen Mountain Powder Tour and indulge in some of the best stashes in North America. Luxury snowcats take you to prime untracked glades and runs on the backside of Aspen Mountain. Fresh tracks guaranteed and gourmet lunch is included.

Powder Tours meet at 8:15am in the lower level of the Silver Queen Gondola Building at the base of Aspen Mountain.

After a short gondola ride to the summit, groups are given an orientation with guides before heading out for backcountry skiing and riding.

A hearty lunch is served in a cozy wood-stove heated cabin set in the heart of the picturesque Elk Mountains. Snacks and drinks are provided on board the cat throughout the day.

Normal ski/board clothing is fine. There is space on the snowcat for extra items, such as cameras, hats, gloves, and goggles.

Powder Tours are on a reservations-only basis and require a credit card number to hold the booking. For reservations visit the Powder Tours desk in the Silver Queen Gondola Building, call 970-920-0720 or 800-525-6200, ext. 3720 or contact us via email. Cancellation policies apply, please inquire.
