Great Northern Powder Guides

Great Northern Powder Guides

Great Northern Powder Guides is a dream come true. Imagine being transported in a top of the line Powder Cat into the midst of the Stillwater State Forest to ski fresh powder all day long. No lift lines, no bothersome youngsters cutting in front of you on a snowboard - just miles and miles of snow and pristine forest for your personal enjoyment. And yes, there is plenty of vertical ranging from 10,000 - 14,000 feet depending on the location.

Great Northern Powder Guides can take you up into the back country for the day or even an overnight. Their accommodations under the stars including a heated yurt large enough for your entire party makes this experience a memorable one. The professional team from lead guides to Cat operators is passionate and knowledgeable so your adventure will be top notch as well as safe. And comfortable from the ride up in the insulated, carpeted Powder Cat with hot beverages and a sound system for your iPod to the delicious meals prepared by the guides.

Jay and Ky Sandelin run a fantastic operation designed for mountain skiers and boarders who want the experience of skiing on ungroomed terrain in deep powder. They can also offer a skiing experience to first time Cat skiers and even to first time powder skiers. With Great Northern Powder Guides only thirty miles south of Eureka on Highway 93, it is easy to get there. And within thirty minutes of loading your gear and stepping into the Cat, you will be shredding powder. For more information or to book your back country skiing experience, visit Great Northern Powder Guides' website. If you want to enjoy a day up there in the back country, it is easy to sign up for a non-private excursion. You can also book an entire Cat (or more than one) for a great outing with friends or family. 'Tis the season!

About the Author: Rita Collins. I am a believer in the power of community and for now I call the Tobacco Valley home. I have lived in nine states and three counties and this community here amazes me - how people reach out to neighbors and even travelers. I've never lived in a place that demonstrates people caring for each other so well. And I've never lived in a place that has such a high percentage of talented musicians and artists. I work with the the Sunburst Community Service Foundation, a nonprofit that began in Eureka twenty years ago and now serves numerous communities in western Montana. And I just started a new business, St. Rita's Amazing Traveling Bookstore and Textual Apothecary. I never could have imagined life being this exciting in my sixth decade.
