The guides at Selkirk Lodge are all certified by the ACMG and/or IFMGA. They are trained and examined on ski touring and mountaineering skills, avalanche and hazard evaluation, mountain rescue, first aid, guiding skills and client care.
Weather and snow conditions are monitored continuously, with observations and evaluations exchanged daily with outside agencies. These include the Canadian Avalanche Association professional information exchange, InfoEx, and the guides of Selkirk Tangiers Helicopter Skiing, our closest neighbors.
Trips are planned daily by the guides based on weather, snow pack, hazard evaluation and the skill and fitness levels of the group.
