A huge thanks from us here at Catskiing.ca to Nick, Ali, and all the amazing staff at Mustang Powder Catskiing!

We will be posting pics, video and stories of our trip here soon. In the meantime, be sure to check out Mustang's website for availability this month. It is shaping up REAL nice up there!

Saty tuned for some real life reviews and demos of their product on this site!

Some say Ken Block has too much money. When you see his cash and idea put to good use like the above 'snowcat' it all seems worth it. For those of you who don't know Ken Block, he is a rally car racing guru and is forging the way for a new wave of drivers. Now it seems he is taking on the snow. This video was too cool not to share. Enjoy!
I just got a giddy phone call from Kieren Gaul at Big Red Cats. He starts telling me how he got first turns today...First Turns man! The above photo is a shot of Kieren enjoying the fresh spoils. Lucky guy. Check out their website for some more pics and a little video proof! http://www.bigredcats.com
