Are you tired of the holiday crowds and looking for wide-open lines and untracked powder? If so, your next call should be the Park City Powder Cats & Heli Ski at 435-649-6596. Park City Powder Cats have been operating on 40,000 acres at the Thousand Peaks Ranch for over 20 years.

This private resort 25 miles east of Park City was founded in 1921 as a sheep and cattle ranch at the foot of the Uinta Mountains. The owners of Thousand Peaks saw over the years that while summer provided an ideal ranching environment – the harsh winter months offered a fabulous opportunity for skiers and snowboarders.

Utah’s Uinta Mountains are a unique mountain range sloping east to west rather than north to south as do most mountain ranges in the continental United States.

With a base elevation of 7,600 feet and a peak elevation of almost 11,000 feet, the Uintas offer Thousand Peaks with a diverse selection of terrain that including unparalleled views, untracked slopes and glades of tree skiing.

The operation offers several different skiing/boarding experiences including:

Cat Skiing
Relax and enjoy the warmth and luxury of a heated snow cat, which will drive you to the top of an exhilarating run and be there waiting at the bottom to escort you back up the mountain at the end. The typical day includes somewhere between 8-10 runs and includes a delicious, gourmet lunch. A minimum of 4 seats booked is necessary to operate each cat.
