    Whisper Ridge Cat Ski Opinions?

    Anybody here cat ski with Whisper Ridge in Utah in the last year or two? Some friends and I are heading out this way next year and thinking of skiing with them.

    I have seen some old threads here from 2017 with mixed reviews. Wondering if anyone has more recent experience and thoughts. Thanks in advance!

    No experience with them. I did ski with Powder Cats last January. I thought they did a great job, as did my friend, who also does some heli skiing. I don't believe they have lodging on site, but they are not far from Park City. I would highly recommend them. Hopefully, someone with Whisper Ridge can chime in.

    Their heli bike operation looks rad.

    Not sure about the heli-skiing though. Probably be a rad experience during a deep winter like last year.

    Their trail is on Trailforks (https://www.trailforks.com/trails/nirvana-197074/). 3 miles, 2k descent. The video looks like it's fun, but not necessarily $200 worth of fun (ignoring the fun of the heli ride itself, which certainly factors in) considering how short it is.

    I mean... I'm as lazy as they come... but that's kind of retarded.

    $795 a day seems a "little" pricey, but maybe you're their target clientele...

    Low angle. Typically lower snow than the resorts closer to city. I'd book but with the flexibility that you cancel should snow suck
