Monashee Powder Snowcats is located on the leading edge of the Monashee Mountain range, about 30 kms southwest of Revelstoke and 30 kms south of Hwy 1, an area unsurpassed for its quantity and quality of snow. Our average annual snowfall of 60 feet of dry, champagne powder guarantees you fresh tracks every run on our five alpine ridges, spectacular natural glades and fantastic open tree skiing. The 17,000 acres of Monashee Powder's terrain has been described as some of the most exciting in the industry.
Guests travel to Tsuius Mountain on the afternoon prior to their holiday to find themselves at 1610 m (5,300 feet) in our Main Lodge and Guest Chalet. Our friendly staff welcomes you and assists in unloading the snowcats upon your arrival. We ask that you make your way to our dining room for a brief, but thorough, safety talk from one of our ACMG accredited Lead Guides, followed by a gourmet dinner.
Rise and shine with coffee at 7 am served in the Guest Chalet. Following a hearty breakfast and the daily weather report from our guides, you prepare your lunch from a large selection of fresh foods. On the first day, once our tailguides have taken you through a beacon practice and snowcat safety talk you're only minutes from mountains of powder.
Snowcats run in any weather conditions so we enjoy great skiing all winter. Our guides are practiced veterans, working hard to keep you safe while offering you great runs all day. Most days, we ski an average of 15,000 – 18,000 vertical feet, or 10 to 14 runs.
After a full day of skiing, the lodge beckons with a crackling fire, appetizers, drinks, the option of a therapeutic massage and two luxurious outdoor hot tubs. The staff members at Monashee Powder take care of all your needs, ensuring each of our 24 guests can relax, share the day's ski adventures and enjoy another culinary delight prepared by our own gourmet chef.
We offer either 4-day (Monday to Thursday) or 3-day (Friday to Sunday) ski holidays. Occasionally, during the shoulder season we offer 2-day trips, please contact us to check the dates of these trips. Trips can be combined if you just can’t get enough!
Our aim is to cater to your every need – from coffee served in the morning until your head hits the pillow at night. That's why our guests become our friends and why so many return to ski at MPS season after season.
