Every night, a fleet of snowcats head up Ajax to do their nightly duty of creating seamless corduroy for the skiing public. However, now a single lucky snowcat driver will take two VIP guests on a tour of their nightly duties. That’s right, two guests at The Little Nell hotel in Aspen will now be able to ride with a snowcat driver during their nightly work hours for a $100.
On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, guests will board the Prinoth “Bison 350” snowcat at approximately 5:30pm and ride along as the driver wields his behemoth paintbrush across the slopes of Aspen Mountain.
The Coolest Snowcat Ever: “16-Person Dodge VanKat is a blizzard of awesome!”
It might sound like something only the rich would find interesting but deep within every ski bum lies a desire to ride around the hill late at night as gapers lay asleep in the valley below, their dreams filled with the bluebird piste runs they saw in a brochure.
But first, you have to shell out the cash to stay at Aspen’s glamorous Little Nell Hotel before you can even contemplate forking over the C-note to ride the snowcat up the hill. The offer is currently exclusive to Little Nell guests and a single room at the hotel in mid-January is $1,000+/night.
