The Skiing at Valkyr Lodge – Naumulten Mountain
Valkyr Lodge, set in the north end of the range, provides access to over 4,000 hectares of ski terrain! You have 8 unique ski zones to choose from on Naumulten Mountain, Mount Rollins and Mt. McBride. The ski zones encompass whole drainages of these 3 mountains and offer a wide selection of terrain to choose from. The variety of aspect, incline and length of run found here can accommodate all ski touring agendas.
On the north and east aspects are big alpine bowls, steep couloirs and exciting treed skiing that the Selkirk’s are renowned for. On the south and west facing slopes are mellower inclines with an endless variety of open treed glades.The ridges and folds of the mountain make for interchangeable and interesting runs. Most tours end with a ski down Naumulten’s west face to the lodge. Timed right, it can be just as the sun is setting over the Monashees and an ethereal alpenglow bathes the basin.
Epic riding in some of the most pristine wilderness that BC backcountry has to offer will keep you coming back for more.
