Loveland Reopens Free Cat Skiing on The Ridge



Loveland has one of the coolest features of any ski area in North America. Skiers and snowboarders can ride The Ridge Cat free of charge on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Ridge Cat services Double-Black Diamond and Black Diamond runs at a peak altitude of 13,010′. Free cat skiing at one of the country’s best ski areas is something every advanced rider should try at some point!

Check out the full details, and a video from Loveland below.

“Enjoy free snowcat skiing along the Continental Divide and explore some of Loveland’s most exhilarating terrain with a free ride on the Ridge Cat. Take in the amazing 360 degree views as you are whisked along the North side of The Ridge in the comfort of our 18 passenger snowcat. The Ridge Cat provides access to Field of Dreams, Velvet Hammer, Tickler, 13,010 and Marmot when conditions permit.

Skiers and riders are required to have (A) a valid season pass or (B) a lift ticket with a Ridge Cat Pass which can be picked up free of charge at the Basin Ticket Office. Ridge Cat access is provided on a first-come, first-served basis when conditions permit. When operating, the Ridge Cat will pick up a new group of skiers and riders just beyond Gate 1 North off Lift 9 and will drop skiers & riders off at Gate 4 North. This MOST DIFFICULT and EXPERT terrain is only accessible by foot or snowcat – there is no lift access here.”
