Description

Love backcountry skiing but tired of the beaten track and competing with the crowd for that crisp, fresh powder? Does the idea of perfect skiing all day, right outside your doorstep sound appealing to you? Look no further than the backcountry skiing and snowboarding Mecca of Canada, Selkirk Mountains!

Sorcerer lodge is a hidden-away gem of a ski lodge in British Columbia and is the answer to your longing for the ideal powder experience! Accessible only by helicopter, the area surrounding the lodge offers impressive backcountry skiing on the deep and consistent Selkirk snowpack with minimal competition. The combination of fantastic terrain and the dependable snowpack is the reason I return here as often as I can!

With an offering that includes everything from steep tree and mushroom lines to spectacular glacier runs off high summits (right outside your lodge’s door!), British Columbia is a great choice for the experienced backcountry skier looking for a proper adventure with all ski and no fuss!

On this tour I help small groups of skiers enjoy a pure, private, pristine, powdery paradise every morning and after an exhilarating day on the mountain filled with superb runs, we return to the cozy lodge for a dry sauna, some tasty food and good company, while preparing for the next powdery day awaiting us.

The lodge is comfortable and simple. You’ll find an essential drying room, a large common area to hang out and a dining room on the main floor. Upstairs are the bedrooms that sleep 2-4 persons. There’s solar power and a back-up generator to keep our gear charged but no WiFi – so we can keep our focus on skiing!

Book now to join me on this powder-packed trip to discover the Mecca of backcountry skiing and snowboarding in British Columbia.
