IMG_4030Tucked deep in the Southern Selkirks lay the Valhalla Range; a seldomly frequented, yet highly heralded part of the world.  Their remoteness is part of their beauty. It’s a place where you’ll rarely cross a ski track and never struggle to appreciate the beauty.

IMG_3943Forged by glaciers plowing through gneiss bedrock, the Valhalla Range provides a dramatic backdrop for a ski basecamp.  Sheer dark grey and white black gneiss walls are contrasted by blank canvases of virgin, white powder snow.IMG_1773

The Valhallas are the Alps of the Kootenays, yielding panoramic views and lots of vertical relief.  Towering north walls provide sheltered, steep, north aspect skiing deep into Spring; making the Valhallas a prime ski mountaineering destination.

Join us this April 10-15 for an incredible foray into a majestic, yet highly unfrequented range.  Depending on numbers and the group’s desires, we will either fly by helicopter or snowmobile to a basecamp site.
