Selkirk Powder is 30 miles from the wettest
spot in the American Rockies making snow
quality excellent and very dependable.
An “average” season is 300+ inches,
but more importantly we retain base with
ridge depths commonly 10' to 12'
with drifts up to 20'

We operate 2 powerful PistenBully snowcats
expertly maintained by dedicated personnel.
We average 8-12 runs, or 10-14k vertical.
Runs are between 800 to 2,200' long.
Elevations range between 4,000 to 6,700';
comfortable for riders from lower elevations.

Our summit lodge is just steps away
from SMR's Great Escape chairlift.
We ride 92 west and north facing runs
spanning a 3-mile long ridge,
dropping into 3000+ acres of
open bowls, steep chutes and glades.
Slope angles vary from light up to 40+

Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling with us is the perfect activity
to get a small group outdoors in the woods.
And it doesn't hurt to be in the snowiest place
in the Rockies!

The trails we ride are usually covered
with fresh powder snow, renewed often by
Mother Nature, so you won’t encounter packed
washboard bumps due to high volume traffic.

We limit guided tours to 6 guest sleds or less
to maximize fun and allow you the best opportunity
to see wildlife while experiencing great conditions
during your ride.
