WHITE GRIZZLY CAT SKIING IS NOT FOR THE WEAK OF HEART

Kaslo is just 40km/25mi south of Meadow Creek, a

cat-skiing hotspot, so skiers are not denied the

area’s steep and deep mountain landscape.

For more than 30 years, cat-skiing has allowed

access to some of the most amazing ski terrain in

the Kootenay Rockies region.

Cat-skiing is also available from nearby Nelson.

 

Selkirk Wilderness Skiing

 

In 1975 in Meadow Creek, Allan Drury realized his

vision of using a snowcat to charter small groups

of skiers to the amazing powdered slopes of the

Selkirk Mountains.

 

This marked the beginning of what is today Selkirk

 

Wilderness Skiing.

Selkirk’s mountain lodge, situated at an elevation of

1,280m/4,200ft, provides a home base for up to

24 skiers.

The company’s tenure covers 8,000ha/20,000ac

of open bowls, glades, and chutes, with runs of

up to 1,200m/4,000ft.

 

Skiers can expect 3,600m/12,000ft to 5,400m/

18,000ft of vertical per day.

Selkirk Wilderness Skiing’s mountain terrain is

located 30 minutes from their  Meadow Creek base.

 

White Grizzly Cat Skiing

White Grizzly Cat Skiing is not for the weak of heart,

priding itself on its hard riding, steep, northeast

facing mountain terrain.

Tackle alpine bowls, steep powder chutes and

tree-lined glades on one of 80 runs.

 

A classic log cabin down at Meadow Creek, 30

minutes from Kaslo, provides accommodation,

hearty meals and the comforts of a hot tub and

stone fireplace.

Retallack Cat Skiing

The timber-frame lodge operated by Retallack Cat

Skiing is located between New Denver and Kaslo.

 

From here bio-diesel powered snowcats transport

skiers up the mountain for single runs of up to

1,280m/4,200ft.

The terrain is steep, the powder dry, and the

après-ski food and hospitality is second to none.

Stop by the Kaslo Visitor Centrefor more

 

information about cat-skiing in the area.
