Weiss Powder Cat Skiing

2020-2021 Operation suspended due to COVID-19 guidelines

Due to the impact of COVID-19, and in the interest of your safety, we will not be operating the CAT skiing tours this year.

Claim the entirety of Mt Weiss for yourself. Weiss Powder Cat Skiing is a showcase for Niseko’s world-famous champagne powder. Long, deep runs through both meadows and forest, Mt. Weiss is a true introduction to the Niseko backcountry. Join a group of other powder-lovers, or hire the entire cat to give your family the perfect introduction to powder and the backcountry. Lunch included.

Guests will complete an average of 6-7 runs in one tour. The steepest run is over 30 degrees and the average is 20 degrees. The maximum vertical decent is 450m. The CAT has a specially-made cabin that can fit up to 12 guests, keeping everyone warm during the ride up.

The Weiss Powder Cats will operate one tour per day. The tour will either be a group tour with 12 individual seats available or a private tour. Guests booking a private tour can have up to 8 guests in their group.
