Then and Now

White Grizzly is one of the oldest cat-skiing operations in the world, delivering authentic mountain experiences since 1998. In 2020 a group of backcountry enthusiasts from Nelson, BC took over the business and started building on this legacy. We are committed to upholding the high standards of safety and guest experience that White Grizzly has known for, and building upon this legacy of excellence.

The mountain

Our private mountain playground is in the Goat Range of the Selkirk Mountains in British Columbia. We’re right in the middle of one of North America’s most consistent snow belts. The catskiing zone faces northeast, keeping it largely protected from the sun and wind. Our terrain contains a perfect mix of steep trees, open fields and legendary pillows. Our upcoming ski touring program will access the rest of the mountain – a total of 11,000 skiable acres.

The Lodge

Our cosy timber lodge is located in a beautiful, remote spot at the top of Kootenay Lake. It features a large, relaxed area for après ski and dining as well as a boot room and five en-suite bedrooms. 

Evenings are spent sitting round the roaring fire recalling the day’s highlights, playing games, and enjoying the creative dishes made by our outstanding chefs. Guests are welcome to BYOB and make themselves feel at home but with staff always close at hand.
