Snowcats run snow or shine
Walker is returning for his second season. He is a great addition to the team at Great Northern Snowcat Skiing. Riding and operating a snowcat beside his father since a very early age, he has learned to love and respect the PistenBully.
By day, Walker will be driving the snowcat, taking guests to the top of every run. By night you can find him in the cat garage making sure the snowcats are maintained and fueled up for the next day of skiing.
Mike is a new addition to the team at Great Northern. Originally from Ontario, Mike has spent the past 7 years gaining experience at a variety of resorts across Canada.
A graduate of the Ski Resort Operations and Management program at Selkirk College, Mike grew up around machinery, and fell in love with snowcats at a young age.
When he's not driving or working on cats, you can catch Mike playing music, shooting pool, and snapping photos of the mountains.
Great Northern has three snowcats, a new Pisten Bully 400 Edge, and the two faithful Pisten Bully 300's, Delta and Beta, the Ferrari of snowcats. We operate one for our multi day with a maximum of 16 guests and one for our single day with a maximum of 13 guests. Our snowcats, climb up Great Northern and Thompson mountains even in heavy snowfall conditions that create epic days on the slopes and ground helicopters.
The 15 to 20 minute snowcat rides between runs are the perfect amount of time to swap powder stories, warm up and grab a homemade snack.
We'll load your gear for you at the bottom of every run and unload it at the top of the next one. All you have to worry about are your turns.
