Snow CatHave you loved big brawny machines since childhood and always wished you could climb behind the wheel and power it up?  Well the folks at Crested Butte Colorado understand completely and are ready to make your big hauling dreams come true with their Snowcat Driving Experience. Started in March 2009, the Snowcat Experience teams vacationers with an experienced Cat Driver/Groomer for in-depth instruction on the basics of driving snowcats, grooming, pushing snow and experiencing the trill of running a big snow machine.

The session begins with classroom safety and operational instruction.  Then it’s off to meet the Cat with a complete walk around introduction to the parts and functions of the machine.  Time to hop behind the controls for the driving fun you’ve been waiting for – an hour of snowcat drive time with your personal instructor.

The Snowcat Driving Experience is offered twice at day (at 10am and 2pm) on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday during the ski season at the cost of $275, which includes transportation from the Lodge at Mountaineer Square.  Families are welcome to watch the driving experience from an on-site tent.  And this excitement is for adults only – participants must be over 18 and have a valid driver’s license.

For the friend or family member “who has everyting”, this may be the winter thrill they’ve been waiting for!
