© Joe StockCPG has offered spectacular cat skiing in Girdwood for over 15 years. Over that time, the accessible terrain available to CPG has more than doubled. Today, during a typical cat skiing day we average 10,000 vertical feet of skiing over 6 runs. CPG cat guides draw upon a variety of terrain options to deliver a great day of skiing, including gladed trees, steeps, open powder fields, rock features, pillows, and more.  Expect 8-12 guests and two guides per snowcat group.  Snowcat guests will receive avalanche beacons and a safety briefing before loading the cat.  Our cat skiing trips depart from directly outside the Alyeska Resort, offering great convenience for our guests.
