What to Expect

  • Powder Tour groups meet their Powder Tour guides at 8:15am at the Gondola Plaza next to the Residences & Lugano’s Restaurant on the west side of the Gondola. Look for the sign: Powder Tour Meeting Area.
  • After a short gondola ride to the summit, groups are given an orientation with guides before heading out for backcountry skiing and riding.
  • A hearty lunch is served in a cozy wood-stove heated cabin set in the heart of the picturesque Elk Mountains. Snacks and drinks are provided on board the cat throughout the day.
  • Normal ski/board clothing is fine. There is space on the snowcat for extra items, such as cameras, hats, gloves, and goggles.
  • Powder Tours are on a reservations-only basis and require a credit card number to hold the booking. Cancellation policies apply, please inquire.

Policies & Guidelines

If Powder Tours has to cancel a tour due to snow conditions, the guest will receive a full refund. If a guest finds it necessary to cancel reservations, the following applies: the guest will be charged a $500 per snowcat rebooking fee for reservations cancelled more than 48 hours prior to the tour.


The guest will be charged 100% of the cost of the tour for reservations cancelled less than 48 hours prior to the tour unless Powder Tours is able to rebook the seat, in which case a $500 per snowcat rebooking fee will apply.

A Powder Tour ticket is valid for three seasons. Anytime during those three seasons, or upon expiration, the value of any unused ticket may be placed in the lift ticket Aspen Snowmass Guarantee account. Complimentary ski school seats do not apply to the full-cat discount.

You will receive an internal monetary credit for the per-day value of any unused days on your lift ticket. Simply bring your ticket to any ticket office or call within 14 days of expiration to receive the credit. You may use your credit in the current season or the season immediately following towards future purchases of lift tickets, lessons or equipment rentals. Sorry, your credit may not be used for purchases of merchandise or food. You may transfer your monetary credit to someone else. Just let us know who is going to use the credit and we will put it in their name.

The decision to initiate the 7am wake-up call for the following day’s reservation is at the sole discretion of the Powder Tours’ office. The 7am wake-up call is subject to the Aspen Mountain Powder Tours’ cancellation policy.
