What is Snowcat Skiing?
Skiers and snowboarders visiting Bohemia can also explore snowcat skiing at Voodoo Mountain. Snowcat skiing is where the skiers and snowboarders ride in a 20 person cab on the snowcat machine and are taken to a remote mountain. The benefit of cat skiing is the ability to enjoy pristine terrain with just a few other people in a true wilderness setting.
Skiers and riders board the snowcat from a staging area and then are transported several miles deep into the forests of the Keweenaw Peninsula. After A 20-minute ride in Bohemia’s heated snowcat escorts visitors to the top of Voodoo Mountain to unload. Guides help skiers and riders explore the terrain. Reach the mountain’s base and repeat the experience.
Designed to rejuvenate skiers and riders body and soul after hitting the runs, Bohemia’s Nordic Spa incorporates hot and cold water exposure followed by relaxation periods to add a touch of zen to the visit.
