RE­SORT OVER­VIEW

Sit­u­ated on the western slopes of the Rocky Moun­tains, deep in Golden’s back­coun­try, Chat­ter is known for its large and spec­tac­u­lar ter­rain. Mind-blow­ing pow­der snow­board­ing takes place in 58,000 acres of alpine bowls, stun­ning glaciers, and end­less tree runs. All trips in­clude he­li­copter trans­porta­tion to the lodge, back­coun­try lodg­ing, gourmet meals, and guided cat­board­ing. With over 120 miles of cat roads built, the choices are end­less, and so are the good times. The Chat­ter Creek lodge is leg­endary, with a full bar, game room, mas­sage stu­dio, and trips no one will for­get.

WHAT'S NEW FOR 2018

This year, Chat­ter Creek has rolled out a guided split­board­ing pro­gram, which of­fers a new back­coun­try ex­pe­ri­ence to guests. Guests of the pro­gram re­ceive the same Chat­ter treat­ment (heli bump to the lodge, back­coun­try lodg­ing, gourmet meals), but in­stead of full days of cat-board­ing, they re­ceive a cat ride to their first run of the day and then are left to their own de­vices (and skilled guide). Guests get to try out ter­rain pre­vi­ously un-snow­boarded by the cat pro­gram and all un­der their own power.
