It might not be the biggest snowcat, but it sure does look snazzy. Panorama photo. Panorama Mountain Resort, located in southeastern British Columbia, nearly has more double-black trails than greens, blues, and blacks put together. As such, it should come as no surprise that they are also planning on operating an inbounds snowcat called "Monster X" to access far-flung, though fully avalanche-controlled zones in Taynton Bowl, located in the northern, AKA upper-left portion of the mountain.

Nepali Gov’t Proposes New Everest Permitting Rules

After overcrowding issues during the 2019 Everest climbing season led to deadly human traffic jams, the Nepalese government proposed new permitting rules for the climb. Under the new rules, prospective climbers would have to prove that they summited another major peak and guiding operations would be required to prove at least three years of high-altitude experience elsewhere before setting foot on Everest.
