Snowfall here is legendary. Powder connoisseurs the world over are already familiar with the unsurpassed consistency, quantity, and lightness of snow in this famous snow-rich portion of the Selkirk Mountains known as “the powder triangle”.The Valhalla’s are the first major range of the Selkirks to get pummeled by the constant storms which roll in over the Okanagan valley from the precipitous Pacific coast. The plains dry out the moisture content and Voila! … Snow quality like few other places on earth.We receive over 1200cm(450″ to 500″) of snow fall each winter and typically have a snow base between 10 to 12 ft (3 to 4m) deep.
Unlike many other catskiing operations, Valhalla drives their cats well into the alpine, meaning that snow conditions are light, dry and deep even when warmer, wetter weather patterns persist in other parts of BC’s interior. What’s more, almost all of our area is north facing, making its snowpack dependable and stable throughout the season.
Our total, continuous fall line is over 3,200 vertical ft (1000m) without being broken up by traverses or skiing down along snowcat trails. Over a third of our terrain is in the alpine featuring ridges, steep chutes and vast open areas to cruise. The lower half of our terrain is large old growth forest that has never been logged and is speckled with short, steep boulder fields.
