    The Valkyr range near Nakusp in British Columbia has some stunning remote ski spots, ideal for winter sports enthusiasts. On this one week backcountry ski tour, I will show you some of its best places to enjoy the snow!

    We will begin our trip with a helicopter ride into the Valkyr area where a new rustic lodge will await us. This will be our base for our backcountry ski week!
