About San Juan Ski Company

With over 35,000 acres of breathtaking terrain in the heart of the West San Juan Mountains, The San Juan Ski Company is Colorado's largest catskiing operation. Escorted by our experienced guides, guests will find untracked bowls, chutes, ridges, glades and treed slopes in an area that receives between 20 and 30 feet of snow each season. Elevations in our permit area range from 8,800 at Durango Mountain Resorts base to 12,500 feet at the summit of Greyrock Peak.

The San Juan Ski Company provides Snowcat Skiing and Snowboarding in the rugged and remote San Juan National Forest of Southwestern Colorado. Intermediate, advanced and expert skiers and snowboarders can now explore this fabulous backcountry terrain with the San Juan Ski Company. Based at Durango Mountain Ski Resort, we are only 30 minutes from Silverton Mountain Ski Area and 2 hours from both Telluride and Wolf Creek Ski Resorts. New for 2011-2012 are family powdercats (kids 16 and under ski for $100 with a full-paying adult) learn-to-ski powder cats, steep clinics and guided backcountry touring (with snowmobile access)
