Loving Life at Big Red Cats

Posted By: Freeride Chronicles on January 3, 2013 12:02 am

Typically early December is the month that most catskiing operations start building a base. Not this winter! Big Red Cats located at the base of Red Mountain in Rossland, British Columbia is having a banner season already and it’s barely even started. With over 200cm on some of their peaks, this winter is looking like it’s gonna be the one at Big Red Cats.

We had the opportunity to get out sample the goods on December 11, 2012. Our crew of powder aficionados were blown away with the coverage, quality of snow and the amount of terrain accessible for this time of December. One of our skiers, Tommy Frey thought this trip would just be a day of getting warmed up for whats in store this winter. With ALL of Big Red Cats terrain opened up, Tommy and the rest of the crew were able to get on it and have some fun. Loving Life at Big Red Cats

One of the great things about traveling to different skiing operations is getting to meet people with the same passion about skiing that you have. On this trip we were fortunate enough to ski with Stephanie Gauvin a Rossland Artist who can rip! Stephanie works her skis with the same precision she uses her paint brushes, exact and with such beauty.

This was my 5th time at Big Red Cats and I can honestly say it was like skiing late January snowpack, Incredible! As you can see in the video, anytime out in the mountains skiing pow with good friends is as good as it gets. I can’t wait to get back up there again next month.
