About Valkyr Adventures
Valkyr Adventures is a family run adventure tourism operation, offering non-mechanized backcountry ski touring and alpine hiking vacations. We base our mountain adventures out of our three handcrafted backcountry lodges located east of Fauquier, BC high in the Valkyr Range of the Southern Selkirk Mountains, deep in the beautiful Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. The Selkirk Mountains and Kootenay region of British Columbia have become world renown for having some of the best powder skiing in the world.
The Winter – More Info
To experience winter in the Valkyrs is a must! The peaks are accessible, the terrain is fun and the snow is pristine. Each lodge has access to unique terrain that covers all aspects and inclines of the mountains so there is never a shortage of daily destinations. Choose from mountain peaks, alpine bowls and couloirs to naturally gladed treed skiing and panoramic ridge walks – you will always be able to find great skiing that best fits your ski touring agenda.
