Excellent time with Ben and his team. Friendly crew providing great service with a focus on safety and fun. The terrain was really good bowls and trees. We scored with untouched powder on every run. The lunchtime hut was a welcome break and the level of snacks and lunch was very good. We have done 7 different Cat tours now... More

Our Cat Trip with Vail Powder Guides last Friday was INCREDIBLE. From the safe, experienced, personable and exceptional guides (Amanda was the best!) to the ridiculously beautiful terrain - it was a day not to be forgotten. Every single run was full of fresh powder and checked by the guides to ensure great snow and safe terrain. A delicious lunch... More

I cannot say enough about what a great company and group of guides at Vail Powder Guides!! They are safety driven but also provided one of the best days of skiing in my life. Ben, Barrett, Todd, and Chris were amazing and I can't wait to go back!!! Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime adventure!

This was one of the best experiences I've ever had on skis. They received about 18 inches in the prior 48 hours which definitely helped. Jenna, Ben, Barrett and Todd were all great. They love what they do and it's obvious within the first minute of meeting them. Their focus on safety and terrain conservation is admirable. By keeping our... More

Fabulous day skiing fields and trees of powder after a few giant dumps in Vail Pass. Thanks for loaning me those 130 powder skis, that made all the difference. Fun having lunch in the yurt! Barratt, thanks for digging me out of 3 ft of powder more than once! Is there any such thing as too deep!!! Ben & Jen,... More

Absolutely the best day I have ever had on skis! We had 30+ inches during the 3 days prior to our trip so the powder was amazing. Great varied terrain for what was a very skilled and experienced group to enjoy. The wide open bowls above treeline with the sun peeking through were beautiful. The entire day from start to... More

We pulled into the parking lot and were greeted right away by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. They gave us a safety briefing and explained where they go and why based on the conditions. We started out on a moderate slope so they could get a feel for the group and determine the itinerary. We had a fairly advanced group... More
