New owners, same amazing skiing!


Mt. Norquay of Banff, Alberta is pleased to announce that, as of December 1st, 2016, have acquired, and are operating Great Northern Snowcat Skiing, taking over from founder and owner operator Brent McCorquodale. Great Northern Snowcat Skiing is the second oldest snowcat outfit in British Columbia, Canada.  Brent found our location by looking at a snow record in the University of Calgary archives that dated back to the 1800’s.  He chose our particular spot in the Bad Shot range of the Selkirk Mountains for one reason: It snows a tonne every year.


As regular skiers at Great Northern, the owners of Mt. Norquay kept on coming back for the same reasons you do. The laid-back atmosphere with incredible people, the small group sizes, the après ski experience and not to mention the epic pow. Brent always did things a little differently. There was no counting runs, vertical or watching the clock. It was always about skiing deep powder until the sunlight or guests’ energy runs out. That’s why we love Great Northern and that won’t change.
