Owner description: Snowcat skiing was pioneered in 1975 by Allan and Brenda Drury in the small community of Meadow Creek, BC. Situated in the south east corner of British Columbia, 1 1/2 hours north of Nelson. Since 1975, the Drurys and their staff at Selkirk Wilderness Skiing have developed a loyal following amongst deep powder skiers and snowboarders looking for an alternative to both lift-serviced and helicopter skiing and riding.

We were lucky with the snow conditions and weather- although there had been no new snow for the past week the guides were able to find lots of unskied runs through good powder, and snow on the Thursday evening gave us new powder to ski on the Friday. The pace of the group was perfect and we never felt that... More

Our specific week at Selkirk faced very difficult weather, which is part of the risk of a booking such as this. On our way out of the area, we found out that every other operation in the area (heli and cat) was shut down due to exceedingly warm weather and poor snow conditions - with high avalanche risk. There was... More

Selkirk Wilderness Skiing takes pride in its long standing safety record of 40 years. We would never put guest safety second to any other consideration. Our entire guiding team are experienced and accredited ski and mountain guides by both Canadian and International guiding bodies. In their professional opinion and in response to the posted comment, safety was never compromised. More

Snow was great, hit freshy's all week despite the lack of snow everywhere else in BC. Amazing week with great people, one that i'll... More

My husband and I had a fantastic trip at the Selkirk Wilderness lodge. The guides and staff were really professional and left no details un-attended. I can't wait to go back! But I wont tell you which week because I'm keeping to myself and my 20 other friends who took the lodge over and watched snow fall every day!

I've been going to SWS for 19 years, so I must be satisfied. The skiing conditions have usually been great, lodge clean and comfortable, staff friendly and many have been there for years which makes it a family like atmosphere. Many of the same skiers return on the same week each year so while I came alone I knew 18... More

Just got back from 5 days of skiing at Selkirk Wilderness. Even though they are in the midst of a snow drought, the experience was exceptional. The fabulous guides consistently found us fresh, untracked lines to ski in great terain. The staff is absolutely wonderful, anticipating every need. This was my first experience cat skiing and it exceeded my expectations.... More

Some of the best skiing of my life! We didn't have to think about anything once we arrived, everything was totally dialled/organized…smooth running operation. Delicious food and the lodge has excellent amenities. Staff are true professionals and create a family atmosphere. Will definitely be back!

Selkirk isn't just a lodge and cat skiing operation, it is a home away from home. There are so many personal touches that show how much they really care about their guests, from taking excellent care of your gear on the ride up, to loading and unloading your skis for you, finding you random things you forgot or sending you...
