Selkirk Wilderness Skiing - Same Legendary Place with a New Identity

A revision of their name to better describe what they offer.

Selkirk Wilderness Skiing (or SWS to those familiar) has been renamed to Selkirk Snowcat Skiing. The idea is it better reflect what it is that they do and do wel - snowcat skiing. As many of you may know, Selkirk Wilderness Skiing started it all for the catskiing industry. What many of you may not know is that they actually operated as Selkirk Snowcat Skiing for a time. The new owners and management team decided during the off season that they wanted the world to know what it is that they are laser focused on and thus the name change and re-branding.

Check out Skeena Catskiing's Backcountry Base Camp

A real backcountry experience...with a snowcat!

Last season Skeena Catskiing established their all-new on-tenure backcountry base camp. They put up a series of robust tents, and a main tent designed to give you the ultimate backcountry experience. You wake up in the morning and the cat pulls up right in front of your tent. After a day shredding northern BC pow, you get dropped off right back at their basecamp.

I don't know about you dear powder lover, but this basecamp looks like a tonne of fun. Imagine yourself here with your closest pow-mongering friends, a sufficient amount of brew, couple that with the small town hospitality offered by the Skeena staff and you are in for one heck of a good time.

Catskiing Canada featured in the Ski Canada Buyers Guide Gallery

Check out this shot taken in the morning sun at Valhalla Powdercats.

Our resident photographer Geoff Holman has been published again with this amazing shot from Valhalla Powdercats! This picture was taken in the morning light on our first run of the day at Valhalla. Skier Adam Benson found the light perfectly as he boosted of one of the many terrain features to be found at Valhalla Powdercats.

We all remember this day well. It was day two of our trip, about 20cms of fresh snow had fallen and the sun made an appearance for the first few runs. We were the only returning skiers that day so we got to sneak in an extra run while the rest of the group did their safety training. It was a morning that is totally encapsulated in this shot.

We can't wait to see what is waiting for us in Valhalla this season.

Wingsuit Flying over Island Lake Catskiing

You read the title right...

In the sometimes surreal world of high-octane action sports, there seems to be a continual upping of the ante. For sheer absurd entertainment value, there is little that compares to the newish sport of wing-suit flying. These slightly “off kilter” athletes jump out of a helicopter or off a cliff, fly with their specially designed wing-suits and engage a small parachute when close to a landing zone. With little room for error, these stuntmen have not only been pushing the boundaries, but annihilating them.

In April of 2015, Island Lake Catskiing invited some of the top wing- flyers in the world to come up for some post ski season fun. The 5 KAVU and GoPro Team athletes of Marshall Miller, Jesse Hall, Neil Amonson, Jeff Shapiro, Hartman Rector, came up and blew minds with their flying. After a few rounds the “flyers” became more comfortable and buzzed Papa Bear Peak, flying about 10 feet off the summit. Hartman Rector, whom has a reputation for pushing the envelope a little further, not only buzzed the big peak, but also did a cork screw (360 rotation) trick in mid flight – a truly impressive sight. Though on the surface these athletes seem a bit reckless and crazy, the fact is that everything they do is highly calculated and planned. Close proximity flying is premeditated and every detail thought through, as the consequences are high.

Watch for a full segment in the new Island Lake TV show next year.
