Galena offers challenging and fenomenal tree skiing, located in Selkirks Badshot Range, known for being one the most steep and rocky terrain in Columbia Mountains. When skiers discovered the adventures in Galena, the name became synonymous with technical skiing through old-growth forests in ”over-the-head” powder. From start of the season skiing is to 80% in trees, in March and April the proportion increases to 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 provides 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.
