When someone mentions Kaslo, British Columbia, they do so with a hushed voice. ‘Kaslo?’, they say. ‘I’ve heard of Kaslo… Isn’t the skiing there supposed to be legendary?’. The whole conversation is said through whispers, as if letting each other in on a well kept secret.
Known as the powder skiing and boarding mecca of British Columbia, the Kootenays are known for their laid back vibe, friendly people, and an uncontainable love of mountain culture. Just one hour north of Nelson, our base in Kaslo is surrounded by the famous Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges, an area revered for having some of the best skiing in the world.
Seeing over 18 meters (60ft) of snowfall each year, the snow we ski is some of the deepest and driest in the world. With terrain rising to over 3,000 meters, our guests are able to ski open bowls, high alpine peaks, and magnificent old growth forests that are suited for everyone, whether your a first time backcountry skier or expert powder rider. All of this terrain is just a short helicopter ride away!
