This is what snow lovers do when there isn't a ski lift to the top of a snowy mountain. They load up in a Snow Cat and ride that up the mountain.

When I saw the title of the video I thought it was going to be a cat skiing - which would have been an awesome video - instead it was a video of skiers and snowboarders carving through untouched powder on Soldier Mountain.

Cat Skiing is defined by Monashee Powder Snowcats as

an alternative to heli-skiing and provides a comparable quality of skiing by using a snowcat to transport guests to deep powder areas. Instead of flying

I can see a lot of benefits to cat skiing - mainly not having to look like a fool trying to get off the ski lift and falling.

P.S. If you find a video of an actual cat on skis send it my way. I really want to see that now.
