Again. I would like to thank you for your wonderful hospitality during our visit. The sense of care went a long way toward relieving my fears... and yes, the mountains did instill a healthy sense of respect. In my younger years, I raced offshore sailboats professionally. Rather than making me jaded, the experience taught me to respect Nature and it’s overwhelming power. That some sense of healthy respect comes through loud & clear from your entire staff. Moreover, rather than allowing it to paralyze you, you find a way to work with it, to harmonize, to prosper. As scared & respectful as I was while @ White Grizzy, I have found that my thoughts drift back your way whenever I have a free moment. Thank you for being such great stewarts of the land & of a life style that seeks to share your life with others.

Evidence speaks for itself – year 7 at White Grizzly! This place is the epitomy of all one could possibly wish for in fabulous skiing experiences on all fronts – people, hospitality, mountain & environment, skiing conditions & such great fun too. You have a magic formula & I love it. Big hugs & kisses.

The ULTIMATE SKI BUM 2012
I can honestly thank you enough for such a wonderful price. It was way more than cat skiing. The entire experience was mind blowing! The terrain, the PERFECT pillow drops and great trees, this place is awesome. The cozy cabin afterwards is like you are right at home or better. You guys have for sure over exceeded my expectations. The fact that the owners like to talk to the clients and actually have such a good time really made the entire experience AMAZING! I couldn’t thank you enough for this prize!!! I can’t wait to come back. Big hug and kisses. Thank you is an understatement. I wish you guys all the best. Keep smiling and remember. WAKE UP AND LIVE (but you guys are already doing a fine job of that).

I have never cat skied before and I couldn’t imagine having a better time. I felt very well taken care of my entire stay. I was amazed at how professional and organized your operation is. Your food is awesome!! Every one of you is very approachable, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, humorous and incredibly hospitable. Your terrain is simply fantastic and I have truly learned the term “huck” at your mountain. Wicked, Wicked, Wicked!

It has been a unique experience and, I could not expect a better self-gift for my 40’s. I had a dream and it became reality even better than expected.
You made me feel home and safely I have had the best "powder" experience in my life. I’ll be back. Thank you White Grizzly

Thanks for a great time! You both are first class all the way in every way. World class skiing, food, hospitality, guides – can’t be better. Wonderful to see run a fantastic business and live the dream, all while making many other people happy along the way. Thanks for truly taking care of our group in every way.

Such amazing times! I’ve been all over the world skiing and, these 2 days of good friends and Deep powder were close to the best 2 days of skiing in 35 years. Thanks so much and good luck in ’06.

It just never stopped puking for 48 hours straight. 37 cm over night, 22 when we arrived. Snowed 25 today. All at -4, -5. Deepest pow of my life. Trofts. Beautiful as it can get in the mountains. Thanks forever!
Blake Seale, North Vancouver BC

Wonderful hosts you are. Your support team, a great crew. This year we were blessed with amazing skiing, snow, snow, snow and more snow. Happy faces all week. Coming to the Kootenays for skiing is a trip everyone should experience and being with the White Grizzly outfit makes it all that much more pleasurable. I had such a great time... I can’t think of how it could have been better.
Wayne Hickey, Seattle WA
February 4, 2005
Every year, it’s more of the same great snow, food & conversation, and always something new. What we though started as a less than epic week ended on the most epic day yet – 56 cm of fresh that seemed bottomless. Year four was just as good as year one – thanks again for a great trip.

Brad, Carole and the White Grizzly Team
I had very high expectations after many raving reviews of former guests. I was not disappointed! I’ve been skiing for 20 years and this last week was, by far, the best ski experience of my lifetime. Thank you for the good times. I’ll be back!

To White Grizzly Powder Gang!
Once again you have proven that the quality, professionalism and dedication of the staff is only surpassed by the quality of the deepest, steepest POW! Thanks for a fantastic week and looking forward to next season! All the best!

Got the biggest air of my life, the steepest treed powder of my life. Pretty much the best 2 days on the board ever. Aside from the amazing powdered terrain the food was unbelievable and Brad & Carole you have it all. Couldn’t end my holiday in Canada better. Thanks.
Ric & Stephanie Straus, Santa Cruz CA

Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you!
What a team, what a total hedonistic experience. Incredible again, your attitude of total quality is unparalleled (like my skiing). 3 weeks of drought you still find great fresh tracks then beautiful dump of light powder to frost the cake. I need to go work out for the next 360 days so I can indulge in your fine Haute Cuisine next year. This is the most intimate operation I could imagine. You are my ski family. Amor & Pow.

Brad, Carole and Gang!
Thanks for the great experience. Of course the snow, terrain, guides and skiing were awesome, but you’re operation has to rank amongst the very best. You both obviously enjoy what you do and that comes across in the way you treat your guests. I’m already looking forward to sharing this experience with Dave next year. You guys ROCK!!!

Our 3rd visit. Again wonderful, wonderful. Great skiing. Steep, deep & trees, just like it’s advertised. New challenges & vistas, great hosts Carole & Brad. The entire operation gets better from year to year and I look forward to my return next year.

Thank you for letting me enjoy what you get to enjoy every day. The snow was excellent and the food was incredible. This is some of the most challenging terrain I have ever been on. Which makes this one of the best experiences of my life. The food and the Guides were better than I could have imagined. Thank you very very much. Hats off to you Brad and Carole. Thanks again!

White Grizzly Team:
Thanks for making the “epic” ski trip that we were all looking to have. I can honestly say that I’ve just found my new addiction: non-stop pow. The lodge, food, and staff were extremely impressive and I am sad that we’ve leaving it all so soon. I hope to see you all next winter if not sooner down in the Bay Area. Ski good or eat wood!

Ein grosses Dankeschön an das gesamte "White Grizzly" Team! Für das beste Essen, wir je gegessen haben, für den besten Pulfer, wir je geritten sind und für den heissesten Whirlpool, in welchem wir je unser Budweiser getrunken haben. Plus für die persönlichste Betreuung, die wir uns vorstellen könnten. Danke für alles!

Nous avons passé 4 jours parfaits avec une neige de rêve – le chalet est joli et comfortable, la cuisine delicieuse et le plus important: Carole et Brad nous ont accueillis très amicalement et les guides sont très attentionés (merci special à mon "ange gardien" Stephan).
