Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 22, 2011 6:37 am

Every skier and snowboarder dreams of floating down acres of untracked powder. This holiday season, make this dream a reality with the Durango, Colorado-based San Juan Ski Company — Colorado’s largest snowcat skiing operation! While many resorts in the Rockies are experiencing unseasonably high temperatures and poor snow accumulation, the SJSC has had normal snowfall throughout its 36,000 acres of terrain and is one of the first snowcat companies in the U.S. to run catskiing trips this season.

SJSC plans to kick-off the season on December 24th. Seats are still available through New Year’s Day.

Since the first major storm hit the southern San Juan Mountains in early October, systems have been tracking south and the storms have kept rolling in. Ski areas in the San Juans – Durango Mountain Resort, SilvertonMountain and Telluride – are reporting normal or above normal snowpack, while Wolf Creek has bragging rights to the most snow in the nation – with 187 inches this season.
