Rooted in the Kootenays

White Grizzly is one of the longest-running snowcat skiing operations in BC, delivering authentic mountain experiences since 1998. In 2020, a group of backcountry enthusiasts from Nelson, BC took over the business to keep building on this legacy. We are committed to upholding the high standards of safety and guest experience that White Grizzly has been known for and to further improve all aspects of the operation.

The WG Crew

Our staff are passionate mountain people who love to work and play in The Kootenays. Being a smaller operation means more personal attention and a willingness to go above and beyond for our guests.

All guiding staff are ACMG or CSGA-certified professional guides with years of experience working in the backcountry of BC. Safety is paramount, but right behind that is having fun, and our guides will find you the best lines every day out.

From our cat drivers to our lodge and kitchen staff, we are a tight-knit team who love what we do. Let us show you our beautiful backyard and what we feel it’s such a special place.
