Kaslo is just 40km/25mi south of Meadow Creek, a cat-skiing hotspot.
For more than 30 years, cat-skiing has allowed access to some of the most amazing ski terrain in the Kootenay Rockies region. Cat-skiing is also available from nearby Nelson.
Selkirk Wilderness Skiing
In 1975 in Meadow Creek, Allan Drury realized his vision of using a snowcat to charter small groups of skiers to the amazing powdered slopes of the Selkirk Mountains. This marked the beginning Selkirk Wilderness Skiing.
Selkirk's mountain lodge, situated at an elevation of 1,280m/4,200ft, provides a home base for up to 24 skiers. The company's tenure covers 8,000ha/20,000ac of open bowls, glades, and chutes, with runs of up to 1,200m/4,000ft. Skiers can expect 3,600m/12,000ft to 5,400m/18,000ft of vertical per day. Selkirk Wilderness Skiing's mountain terrain is located 30 minutes from their Meadow Creek base.
