With more than 35,000 acres of terrain, San Juan Untracked is the largest snowcat skiing and snowboarding operation in the United States. From rolling glades to wide open bowls, cliffs, chutes, gullies and trees blanketed in abundant snowfall, San Juan Untracked offers an exceptional backcountry experience to skiers and riders of all abilities through daily guided backcountry trips departing from Durango Mountain Resort. Equipped with three passenger cats and two Mattracks vans, we have a comfortable, reliable means of access to the best snowcat skiing in Colorado in exceptional and powdery terrain. For affordable snowcat skiing and boarding, San Juan Untracked is your ticket to open bowl skiing, tree skiing, and, frankly, a party in the backcountry found in rare supply on the planet. San Juan Untracked proudly operates under a special-use permit with the cooperation of the U.S. Forest Service in the San Juan National Forest.
Located north of historic downtown Durango, Colorado, in the ruggedly pristine San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado, San Juan Untracked is a short drive from Durango, Silverton, or Telluride. Our beautiful snowcat backcountry territory accesses a triangle of terrain between Telluride, Silverton and Durango including Cascade Creek, Hotel Draw, Grayrock and Graysill peaks.
Everyone likes to have fun, but safety for our clients is our number-one priority. All of our ski and snowboard guides are professionally certified with first-aid and avalanche safety training. In addition, we have mutual response agreements with Durango Mountain Resort ski patrol. Our snowcats are equipped with a full line of first-aid and rescue gear. Along with these certifications and precautions, we have experienced explosives technicians to mitigate avalanche danger to create avalanche-controlled skiing.
