To ensure you get the dates and size of group you want, we encourage you to book as soon as your dates are established.
Some of our guests make their reservations up to a year in advance, so don’t wait too long to contact us.
We collect a non-refundable deposit on booking and the remainder 60 days before your tour date. Please be sure to read our full payment policy.
If you prefer, tips for guides can be added at the time of deposit. The typical tipping amount in the industry is 10–20 % of the total tour cost: the same as you would extend for service in a restaurant or similar setting. At Selkirk Powder, tips are pooled and shared among guides, snowcat drivers (for snowcat trips), and your reservations agent.
Change of plans
We recommend travel insurance policies with cancel-for-any-reason-coverage for peace of mind and reducing your exposure should you want to cancel due to conditions not being to your liking. We’ve selected a policy to consider.
If you need to reschedule your tour during the current season (and we are in receipt of your full payment), we assess a $40 administrative fee. We will endeavor to honor new tour dates; please be aware that any changes are subject to space availability. Please be sure to read our full cancellation policy.
Yes, we can: please notify us at least three days in advance.
