Higher, Steeper, Deeper. Just about 9 miles north of Creede Colorado, San Juan Snowcat will transport you into the truly epic, magnificent and beautiful powder terrain that can only be found in the “Lost" San Juan Mountains. San Juan Snowcat truly offers the adventure of a lifetime. At 13,250 feet (the highest backcountry snowcat access in North America), we place you on top of untracked bowls, chutes and couloirs.

Runs range from rolling intermediate glades to extreme faces that reach 55° in pitch. All of this plus the breath-taking views of over 7 different 14,000 foot peaks. We offer exclusive access to the finest terrain and premier powder with the most thorough backcountry awareness available in a Colorado guided experience. San Juan Snowcat is located in the wonderful city of Creede, Colorado. Creede is 21 miles north of South Fork and 37 miles from the famous Wolf Creek Ski Area. Don’t hesitate... this is truly a high alpine adventure you will never forget.
