When I got the call from Brandon Ott at Ski Utah about cat skiing, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Skiing...with cats? Interesting. I knew squirells could waterski, and dogs could skateboard...but cats? I had to see this for myself.
I arrived at Timberline lodge around 8:00am. No sign of cats. I headed inside the lodge to investigate furrrthur.
Lots of cool retro signage. Crazy cat left on the left furrr sure. i'm getting warmer.
I had about an hour wait until the rest of the gang arrived, so I helped myself to some potatoes and mock-cobra sauce. Not too shabby. The breakfast burritos looked amazing.
Riding up the lift with Ski/Ride Utah as well as Powder Mountain President Gregg Greer & Marketing man Pat Lundin. The ideal tour guides for an epic bluebird pow day.
Waiting for the cat to arrive. 'He must be a good skiier;' I thought to myself, '...a brave kitty indeed.'
Ohhh ok, I get it now. Gregg Greer pawses at the top of Lighting Ridge, scoping potential lines.
Another view of the ridge. Plenty of powder to go around, no need to panic! shredding ensued...
Man that was fun!
