My husband has been coming to Retallack for the past 8 years to ski and we finally decided to make a trip in the summer. I came in expecting this place to be awesome and it STILL exceeded all expectations. The lodge was hip, cozy and quaint, the staff was incredibly friendly (always remembered my name) and the food was... More

Retallack is hands down the best cat skiing in North America. The terrain is trees, wide open bowls and steeps. The variety is insane. The lodge is first class and the food is five stars. The terrain is that of a helicopter operation with NO down days. I will continue to go back. Last week consisted of the best deep... More

On the other hand, if you get off on either titsdeep steep powwow unlimited verticalfeet mountain bike tracks with jumps and features all over the place Retallack will become your new favorite drug👍 If that was not...

Retallack is awesome. I have been there a few times now and the experience is always over the top. The guides always find the best snow and terrain, the lodge staff is efficient and friendly, the food is fantastic. You experience will be better in good snow years but in my experience, they find great skiing even when conditions could... More

Retallack is definitely one of a kind and a class of its own when it comes to Catskiing in BC. Supreme snow quality and guides combined with spectacular and steep terrain, first class food and a relaxing vibes in the lodge makes this place one of the top Catskiing destinations in North America. The terrain available is varied and fairly... More

This place is essentially heaven on earth. Best skiing of my life. Incredible vibe in the lodge. Genuinely good food for breakfast, lunch, après and dinner. Great guides. Legendary cat drivers. If only the whole world was like Retallack.

The fact that I've been back four times really says it all! The terrain is some of the most diverse big mountain I've had the pleasure of skiing and the staff really know how to put you in the right places. Even during a meager snow season a couple years ago, we were able to access some amazing pow. The... More

I am a frequent visitor to Retallack for cat skiing. After sampling the goods at other cat skiing operations around BC, our group continues to return to Retallack for the best terrain, snow, and overall experience. Our family was in the area this summer, and my son and I decided to come and see how their mountain biking program was... More

This is a very disapointing experience for mountain bikers. Its very expensive for the poor accomodation. While the heli drop was amazing the trail was boring and led to 10 kms worth of road back to the resort. Probably the only mountain bike experience I have ever regrtetted. The trails were fun though, unless there is a change is how... More
