September 01, 2020 update
Hello, skiers and riders! We are working diligently with Schweitzer Mountain Resort on our cat skiing and snowmobiling trip logistics to keep them as close to normal as possible, albeit introducing COVID-19 precautions. Beginning on Thanksgiving weekend, we’ll kick-off our unrivaled snowmobile tours. On Christmas week, we’ll be chasing powder via snowcat and have more news of continuing to fly helicopters from Sandpoint in the valley below. With Canadian operators raising concerns about U.S. skiers accessing the BC border, this season it will be more important than ever to reserve seats early. Ronnie and Alix are standing by; please call them if the online booking system presents questions.
Stay safe and healthy—we look forward to riding with you!
– Ken & the crew
Some USA cat skiing operations that are attached to a ski resort are a bit ho-hum, but Selkirk Powder Company definitely isn’t one of them.
Each run was a new experience whether it was clusters of snow-ghost frozen trees to weave through or a wide open chute to have to yourself. Different slope angles, fall-lines and new runs each time kept things super fun and interesting!
Even though it had been a few days since the last snow, we had plenty of opportunity to lay down fresh tracks. I’m a strong intermediate skier, and found the day very do-able thanks to Ken’s ability to tailor the trip to his clients’ skill level and interests.
If you want a premier untracked backcountry powder experience without taking a week off of work or traveling to places beyond reach, Selkirk Powder will get your stoke on!
We did a two-hour snowmobile tour on Schweitzer, and what a thrill it was! Everyone was out-of-this-world genuinely friendly and helpful—how refreshing!
