“I’ve now guided long time return groups at both the Naumulten and Hilda Lodges and have had great experiences at both. However, the Hilda Lodge is something special…

  • Great hut, great food, hot showers, indoor plumbing and a hot tub on the deck
  • Incredible ski terrain – loads of 400-800m descents in beautifully spaced trees, patches of old growth forests and climax avalanche paths, spectacular and complex Kootenay alpine terrain with lots of options for large loop tours
  • Possibility for cheap single-lift helicopter drop mid to late week while the machine is in the area doing other lodge exchanges

Anyhow, thought that I would help to add another great lodge to an already long list of great backcountry lodges in this neck of the woods. Check it out if you ever get the chance.”

“The trip was amazing, the company superb, the guides the best, and our hosts a treasure! Thanks to all for helping make this a grand week in heaven.” ~Mike and Joyce

“I have been to the Valkyrs 4 times now to Naumulten and Hilda. I have also been to about 20 other huts in Canada and the US. This last week may have been the best backcountry week we have had! Martin & Shelly have the whole package. They have the most comfortable huts anywhere, they choose great guides, have exceptional skiing, and the food……I have to diet after every trip with them! Don’t ever retire Martin & Shelly. As long as we can still walk, we will come up to ski with you.” ~ Russ

“Thanks for a wonderful week of meandering among amazing meadows and ambling along gorgeous ridgelines and mossy creeksides. Such an amazing location – made even more rich by your knowledge of the terrain and friendly way of sharing it with us. From sunshine to hail and rainbows, it was all glorious! Thanks also for the excellent meals and fine conversation. We’ll tromp out renewed and looking forward to coming back soon!”

“We were looking for a cozy backcountry cabin with great hiking for our small wedding and knew immediately from Shelly’s warmth and excitement that Valkyr was the ideal place. We not only had a fantastic wedding ceremony up by Naumulten Lake but one of the more memorable 4 days ever. Thank you!”
Milvi, Ontario

WOW! What a wonderful place. Thanks so much to Shelley and Martin for> the fabulous weekend we just spent at their lodge for the wedding of my son. Weather was awesome and the hospitality next to none. Anyone who enjoys hiking or skiing or just a weekend of sunshine and fresh air should definitely consider this location. I definitely plan on> returning. Thanks again.
