We have continued with remodeling upgrades to our chalet. Last year we tried to warm up the look and feel of the main seating area and Kato CafĂ© with new flooring, wall color and vintage photos. This year you’ll notice new counter tops and sinks in the restrooms.

In order to make the learning opportu­nities more open to our guests, Mount Kato has added a Learning Center in the chalet/ski shop. Lessons can still be purchased at the ticket windows, but if you want to talk one on one with a Pro in more detail, now that opportunity is available and convenient at all times. In a continued effort for quality experience we have also upgraded over 400 pairs of rental skis in our fleet.
