Galena offers challenging and phenomenal tree skiing and is located in Selkirks Badshot Range— known for being one the most steep and rocky terrains in the Columbia Mountains. When skiers discovered the adventures awaiting them in Galena, the area became known for its technical skiing through old-growth forests in ”over-the-head” powder. At the start of the season guests ski 80% of the time in trees, and then in March and April the conditions favor more high alpine terrain. Galena is recommended for advanced skiers.
4 groups of 11 skiers share a Bell 212 helicopter. The lodge is built where three major valleys converge, which allows access to skiing in most types of weather.
Galena is a fly-in lodge. After bus transfer from Kelowna to Galena helipad our guests are picked up by helicopter for a short flight to the lodge.
