Snowcat Access

Tucker Mountain Snow Cat Access

Copper'sTucker Mountain Snowcat Access is as close to a backcountry, big-mountain experience as you'll find in-bounds at any resort. During the winter season, snowcats run from 10 am - 1:30 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and Tucker Mountain closes at 2:00 pm. Tucker Mountain is open for hiking most days, weather dependent. Cat operations, terrain openings and conditions may vary and are subject to change. Oh yea...first come, first served.


Ski patrol will fly green flags at all duty stations when the Tucker snow cat is in operation. The duty stations are Tucker Patrol, on top of Tucker Mountain, Motel 6, top of mountain chief, Timberline Patrol, top of American Flyer, and Patrol Headquarters. We will also fly Open flags at the cat pick up and on the snow cats.
