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.
Tours are full day experiences and are priced at $369 per person. This includes a robust hot lunch in our backcountry yurt, use of individual rescue beacons & powder skis or boards (if desired), and a traditional après ski with choice microbrews and snacks. Advance reservations are required; a minimum of 5 guests are needed to confirm a tour launch. Call 800-707-6114 between 8 AM and 4 PM to make your reservation. We will work to match single guests, couples and groups of less than 5 to meet the required launch minimum. There are never more than 12 guests on a tour. A private tour can be assured by “buying out the cat” for $3,699. Private tours may be from 1-12 guests. Guests are asked to arrive at the Ski Cooper base lodge by 8:15 in order to make a scheduled departure of 8:45. A hearty, reasonably priced breakfast is available beginning at 7:30 AM. After an average of 8-12 runs in untracked snow, we return to the base lodge tired and happy at approximately 4 PM.
