There is some great skiing to be had at Selkirk Lodge. After little more than an hour’s climb, you can be atop Primrose Peak, ready for a leg-burning 4000+ vertical foot run to MacDougall Creek. Or, if it’s snowing too hard, ski right out the door, but don’t forget your skins! With an elevation band of over 5000 feet of skiable verts, we always have options. We safely ski glaciers and avalanche paths, treed glades and alpine bowls.
