2021: Colorado & Montana

Smaller Groups. Shorter Trips. Want to keep your SASS closer to home? Announcing an all-new series of SASS: Long Weekend Adventures starting January 2021.

TEST-TO-TRAVEL: We’ll be asking all clients and staff to obtain a negative COVID19 test within 72 hours prior to travel (and/or upon arrival, prior to use of SASS services).


A: January 7-10 | B: March 18-21, Starting at $2595 USD

Join the SASS crew (including guest appearances by Pete Connolly and Lucas Moore) in northwest Colorado alongside our longtime friends at Steamboat Powdercats on Buffalo Pass for a powder-choked adventure near Steamboat Springs, including a mix of private guided cat skiing/riding and touring missions and paintball activities.

If you’re not a couch potato seeking out the best games to make real money on your phone – choosing paintball as a hobby is a great way to get exercise, improve your mind, and have fun all at the same time. It strengthens you in various ways and can teach you some valuable life lessons. Visit propaintball.com to get all you equipment and even some tips.


RESTRICTIONS: Limited to 10 clients, per Colorado public health ordinances.

March 11-14, Starting at $2995 ~ $3495 USD (lodging-dependent)

See Telluride from new heights with SASS legend Garrett Russell on a locals-only tour of the epic terrain surrounding his childhood home at the Alta Lakes Observatory (11,300ft), including snowmobile-accessed touring and guided exploration with support from MD and the crew at Telluride Outfitters.


RESTRICTIONS: Limited to 10 clients, per Colorado public health ordinances.


Each trip spans four days (Thursday to Sunday) and includes 3 Nights Lodging, 3 Days On-Mountain, Local Airport Transfers*, Daily Breakfast, Welcome Reception and a Farewell Dinner Event.
‘On-Mountain’ days vary by trip, including: cat skiing, snowmobile-access, lift-accessed and touring. Because the exact itinerary and details of each trip are unique and “evolving,” please submit an inquiry or email sales@sassglobaltravel.com.
*Available on transfer days at Steamboat-Hayden (HDN) and Glacier Park-Kalispell (FCA). Note that airport transfers in Telluride-Montrose (MTJ) are limited to a single transfer time, otherwise additional costs may apply.
**The dates above are target dates and may be subject to change based on public health conditions.

Join the short-list! SASS will have very limited capacity for these adventures.

Early Registration Information & Frequently Asked Questions:

  • When will SASS finalize the trip details, pricing, lodging, etc?  Details will be available on November 9 to “Short List” clients for pre-registration. Email sales@sassglobaltravel.com or call 1-800-851-4660 for more details.

  • Will SASS require COVID19 testing to participate?  Yes. We are launching a “test-to-travel” pilot program, in which we’ll ask clients to obtain a test within 72 hours prior to travel (and/or upon arrival, prior to participating) and comply with local health ordinances. More details will be available soon.

  • How many clients will be on a trip?  Most are limited to around ten clients. We may also lower the capacity of a given trip due to public health-related changes. We’re asking for client flexibility as we travel responsibly.

  • Are these SASS trips or are they operated by other people? These are genuine SASS trips! Members of the SASS crew will join you alongside  our  friends at Steamboat Powdercats and Telluride Outfitters in Colorado to operate portions of these trips, while Great Northern Powder Guides facilitates our guided cat skiing component in Montana. By working with these permitted operators (all three hold Special Use Permits for their respective National or State Forest), clients are directly supporting local outfitters and the tourism economy.

  • How long are these trips? What’s a “long weekend” anyway? Most trips will be 4 Days / 3 Nights beginning on a Thursday and concluding on a Sunday, with three on-mountain days. Early arrival and late departure extensions will also be available.

  • What health and safety procedures will be in effect? In addition to complying with local regulations, we’ll be implementing our “test-to-travel” pilot program (see above) and we’ve adopted enhanced Health and Safety guidance developed by the Adventure Travel Trade Assn. and the Cleveland Clinic (READ THE GUIDELINES).

  • In addition to pre-arrival testing, other health and safety changes include:
    • Smaller sessions, reducing the number of clients attending at the same time.
    • Daily temperature screenings before the beginning of group activities.
    • Use of only private snowcats (no outside guests) during cat skiing operations.
    • Designated testing sites in each location for instant and PCR-based COVID19 testing.
    • Increased ‘Solo Room’ lodging availability for clients not traveling together.
    • Use of outdoor spaces for apres ski options and social experiences, when possible.
    • Use of non-medical face coverings by staff and clients whenever practicable.
