Newfoundland Cat-skiing

Three days: Boston to Newfoundland cat-skiing.

FLY

from Logan International Airport to Deer Lake, Newfoundland, for $534 round-trip on Air Canada (aircanada.com).

RIDE

the 45-minute Star Taxi shuttle ($15; 709-634-4343) from Deer Lake to Steady Brook. The day you're up for the cat, Star will also drive to Blomidon Cat Skiing's launchpad for $32.

STAY

in Steady Brook. Marblewood Village (marblemountain.com) rents spankin' new three-bedroom condos, with sundecks and big kitchens, that sleep eight ($297 per night, which works out to 37 bucks a head).

SKI

with seven of your closest friends as you wreak havoc on 7,000-plus acres of above-treeline powder, losing your stomach over cornices and through couloirs that overlook the sparkling blue Gulf of St. Lawrence. Rack up an average of 14,000 vertical feet and ten runs ($234 apiece for eight people, ninth person is free; catskiing.net).

THE TOTAL: $852
