Tucked 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.
Forged 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.
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 March 7-11, 2020 for an incredible foray into a majestic, yet highly unfrequented range. We will accuse snowmobile to access the basecamp site.
