At 12,454′ the high altitude combined with good Northern exposure keeps our snow cold and light. Operating in the Jones Pass area with an operating permit of 2,600 acres, we have the powder, vertical and adventure for an epic powder experience. Our operations run seven days a week and one of the closest snowcat tours located just 45 minutes from Denver. Better yet, our operations run in the last town before heading up to Winter Park Resort.


All trips include powder demo skis, safety gear, lunch provided by Rudi’s Deli, and 2 free beers at the end of the day, compliments of Steamworks Brewery. Photography services are available by reservation.


If you are coming from the Front Range you can meet us at the Jones Pass trailhead located 9 miles North of Empire Colorado on US 40. Planning an extended stay? Because we're located so conveniently to Winter Park Resort, consider heading up Berthoud Pass just 45 minutes West of Empire.
