Travel to your Cat Skiing Holiday Spot!

White Grizzly Lodge is located in Meadow Creek, BC, just off Highway 31, at the north end of Kootenay Lake. There are two ways to enter Meadow Creek, following the highway south from Revelstoke, or north from Kaslo. A large section of road from Revelstoke is unpaved, and the highways in both directions wind through mountain passes where winter storms can come on suddenly. The roads are well maintained, however they are sometimes unavoidably covered in compact snow or ice. We strongly recommend that you bring a 4-wheel drive vehicle to come snowcat skiing here.

Please note that Meadow Creek is on Pacific Time (same as Vancouver, Seattle, LA). Pacific Time is three hours earlier than Eastern Time, and one hour earlier than Mountain Time.

BC Highways provides up-to-date information on weather and road conditions on their Drive BC website, as well as current web cam images of all the major routes and passes.


Most overseas travellers will fly into either Vancouver, BC or Calgary, AB. Kelowna, BC also provides excellent access, particularly if you are visiting Revelstoke first.

The majority of our cat skiing guests from the United States prefer to arrive in Spokane, WA, a five hour drive away from Meadow Creek. Many direct flights and fantastic connections through Minneapolis, Seattle, and Denver are available.

There is a small local airport two hours south of Meadow Creek, in Castlegar, BC. AirCanada provides daily flights to Castlegar from both Vancouver and Calgary.

*A cautionary note: the Castlegar airport experiences frequent flight cancellations in the winter, and when using it, you should be prepared for possible delays.
