Last year, Vermont’s Sugarbush Resort bought a snowcat cab from Colorado’s Ski Cooper, gave it a fresh coat of red paint, bolted it to one of its groomers, and became the first of Vermont’s resorts to offer cat-skiing. On a powder day, book a 6 a.m. cat trip so you and up to 11 buddies can rip inbounds freshies for two hours before the lifts open. Or reserve it in April, when the spring corn is at its finest and Sugarbush’s north side, Mount Ellen, is open only for cat-skiing guests. You’ll beat the seething locals waiting for first chair, and you’ll do so with hot coffee and omelets served between runs. Get a single seat, bragging rights, and the empty, early-morning lines for the cost of a full-day lift ticket ($75), or you could book the whole cat for $1,200. [sugarbush.com]
