At Skeena Cat Skiing, our #1 priority is your safety. We developed a comprehensive safety program and have put together a team of guides made up of some of the top and most influential professionals in the avalanche industry. All of our guides are members of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) as well as the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA), and many have been guiding for 20-plus years.
The most important factor in risk avoidance is planning and preparation and we have developed our safety program with this in mind. Skeena Cat Skiing is also a member of HeliCat Canada, ensuring that we meet a comprehensive set of operating guidelines. During your holiday you will be provided with an avalanche transceiver and a small avalanche airbag backpack. Inside the backpack will be a shovel and probe. On the first morning of your trip you will take part in a companion rescue training session.
Despite the numerous measures we take in order to make your backcountry holiday as safe as possible, it is important guests understand that wilderness activities involve risks, dangers and hazards. All guests are required to have read, understood, and agree to the release of liability waiver prior to Skeena Cat Skiing processing payment for your trip. Click here to read the liability waiver.
