Your health is our top priority, and we have put special measures in place to keep all guests safe both during and after your trip.


Pacific Crest Snowcats has led trips on our Tahoe site since 2000, and has a perfect safety record. Every precaution is taken to assure your safe enjoyment of the backcountry.

We hire only the best guides and drivers in the business. These folks are first aid certified, and trained in avalanche forecasting & control and search & rescue techniques. Our snowcats are outfitted with state-of-the-art first aid and rescue gear.

At the start of every day guests are walked through a discussion of safety and proper beacon use. This includes familiarization with the snowcat, loading/unloading procedures, rescue scenarios and backcountry protocols. Then you can just relax and enjoy the ride knowing you are in good hands.
