Dig in to the legendary Kootenay powder and let your backcountry adventure begin with the relaxing and exhilarating experience of Valhalla Catski!

Valhalla is the beautiful and iconic Norse word that refers to a warrior’s heaven or paradise, and it’s the perfect choice for these majestic mountains of southeastern British Columbia, because they feel like heaven on earth. The Valhallas, located in the fabled Selkirk Mountain Range, are the perfect location to experience British Columbia’s endless untracked Kootenay powder.
Catski tours with Valhalla Catski are professionally guided, which is just what you need to get the most out of this diverse and engaging mix of big mountain terrain. The tenure that Valhalla’s Powdercats cover is six times the size of Whistler Blackcomb. You’ll also find that this location, deep in the heart of the Selkirk Mountains, has the perfect selection of high alpine bowls, steep slopes, and old-growth forests tree skiing.
