Kpow where have you been all our lives?!? Saturday was our first cat skiing experience and it blew our minds! Staff is excellent, operation smooth and the runs were so much fun with so much powder! We lucked out in every way for conditions and can't wait to go back again!! A very rewarding experience.

I learned to ski at Fortress and was very disappointed when the hill closed several years ago. When Kpow began I knew I had to get out there. I went once in February and once in March.

Undeniably the greatest ski adventure of my life. This crew is all about sharing joy and kindness on an unbelievably picturesque mountain. Their entire day was spent making sure we were experiencing the best day possible. The skiing was epic and the lunch in the forest was superb. I would highly recommend KPOW.

It is uncommon in my experience that such an operation offers the opposite of their product to an extreme. When you can not offer your product; powder snow and offer ice rock and multi slab layered snow and wind sept slopes instead, then there is a problem. On the day I went skiing, the conditions were deplorable. What was more... More

Hi Lee, We contacted most of the guests who were coming this week and advised them of the conditions. While just last week we had more than 50 cm of fresh powder, a Chinook created a wind crust that made the open slopes firm. We worked hard to find tree skiing that had soft snow, and for our efforts were... More
