HIKING TO TAMARACK CHAIR &
BOOKING A SNOWCAT SHUTTLE

On December 18th, 2021, a fire occurred at the Northstar Express Quad Chair lift building.  As a result, unfortunately, the Northstar Chair will not be operational for the remainder of the 2021.2022 winter season.  Please visit our blog for updates on the situation and information on the efforts being made by our caring and dedicated staff to keep the resort running and how we are ensuring anyone visiting us still has a fun and memorable experience.

HIKING TO THE TAMARACK CHAIR

Currently, the Easter and Tamarack Chairs on the backside are open, along with the Owl T-Bar and Magic Carpet in the base area.  Young families and those not able to access the backside via the 20-40 minute hike can book a spot on one of our snowcat shuttles (see below).  Those adventurers ready to tackle the hike will have help with a ski and snowboard delivery service.

  1. Ride up Owl T-Bar. Approx. 45min - 1hr hike from T-Bar.
  2. Continue straight to the road. Cross the road and follow the trail up to the Maintenance Parking Lot. Cross the Parking Lot.  Approx. 20min - 40min hike if you park in the Maintenance Parking Lot and start the hike from the Ridgeway Cat Track.
  3. Follow Ridgeway Cat Track.
  4. Keep right at the 'Y' at the crest of the hill. You may put your skis on here and push/skate across the flats.
  5. You have arrived at the Tamarack Chair!

BOOKING A SNOWCAT SHUTTLE

Seats on our snowcat shuttles have limited availability.  As such, seats can book up fast when they become available each night at 6pm.  If you aren’t able to book a spot immediately we encourage you to come back to the booking page to try again, alternatively, you can also try to get a spot through walking up, we reserve two walk up spots on each shuttle.  Those who are able to hike to the backside we ask you continue to do so to allow guests who aren’t able to hike to have priority for our shuttle seats.

We realize there are certain age groups and situations (families with young children and 65+ age group) who have had mobility issues with our shuttles or difficulty navigating our online booking system.  In an effort to make the shuttles as accessible as possible to everyone, two shuttles per day will be reserved for these groups.

General conditions and information about our shuttle service;

  • A Lift Ticket, Season Pass or Rockies Card is required to ride the shuttle. Half day tickets will scan starting at noon.
  • Loading location is in the lower base area next to the Conference Center.
  • There is no charge to book a spot on the shuttle.
  • Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled reservation and check-in with the on site attendant.
  • Safety is our number one focus in offering this service. Please do not approach the snowcat or enter the staging area until directed to do so.
  • Please always follow the driver’s instructions.
  • Due to COVID-19 masks will be mandatory at all times while in the snowcat and windows will be left open when possible to circulate fresh air.
  • No eating or drinking in the snowcat.

As this situation is unprecedented for our resort, we are determining the best system to ensure everyone gets an equal opportunity to book a seat on our shuttles on an ongoing basis.  If you are having any issues booking or have productive feedback on what we can do better, please let us know.

Great thanks to Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort for their support and assistance in providing the equipment to allow us to operate the shuttles.
