Perched at 2,165 m (7,100 ft) in the Albert Icefield area, east of Revelstoke, Selkirk Lodge commands a backcountry paradise in winter, with technical hiking and general mountaineering in the summer.
The landscape is greatly varied with glaciers, treed glades and alpine bowls. There is an elevation band of over 1,525 vertical meters (5,000 ft) of skiable terrain.
There are also numerous runs with vertical drops of over 900 m (3,000 ft) or more, with several over 1,375 m (4,500 ft), all easily accessible from the lodge. Sunny days will find you high up on the glaciers and in the alpine, laying tracks in Selkirk champagne powder. Snowy weather is no problem, with over 600 m (2,000 ft) of tree skiing right outside the door.
Note: This is not beginner terrain.
While you don’t need to be the best skier ever, a minimum of strong intermediate skills is necessary.
The cozy, comfortable lodge accommodates up to 14 skiers. It is light and bright, with spectacular views in every direction. The lodge is equipped with shower, indoor plumbing and 12 V solar power with a backup generator.
The guides take you on amazing ski tours through this mountain wonderland while the cooks turn out scrumptious meals to keep you going in the great outdoors.
Guests are driven from Revelstoke to Albert Canyon, 35 km (22 mi) east of the city. From there, a short flight brings them to the lodge.
