Winter Ski Touring


Selkirk Lodge offers amazing back country skiing. The Selkirk Mountains are known for deep snow and “designed for skiing” terrain. The mild winter temperatures and abundant snowfall contribute to a generally stable snow pack, averaging 2.5m in early January and over 5m in April. It snows a lot! Face shots, anyone?

After little more than an hour’s climb, you can be atop Primrose Peak, ready for a leg-burning 4000+ vertical foot run to MacDougall Creek. Or, if it’s snowing too hard, ski right out the door, but don’t forget your skins! With an elevation band of over 5000 feet of skiable verts, we always have options. We ski glaciers and avalanche paths, treed glades and alpine bowls.

Our trips start and end on Saturdays from New Year through April, with seven days in backcountry ski heaven. Click here for booking information.
