About Selkirk Powder Company

Selkirks were created for skiers and boarders! North running ridge with western running shoulders make the most appealling aspects for a wonderful skiing experience. 3000 acres of diverse terrain featuring old growth for 1000's of vertical feet, glacailly carved cirques with very unique and ridable features, wind-blown natural half-pipes with 10ft sidewalls, 40 degree open chutes for 800 vertical, Pick-up roads sit directly below skiing terrain making for very easy and natural pick-ups; very boarder friendly!

Schweitzer's 6-minute summit lift, we drop-in along 3,000 acres of a private and state owned, north to south ridgeline. We ski 6 regions of primarily west/s/w-facing and north/n/w-facing 20 to 40 degree pitches. Our average run is 1,200ft vertical and our longest is 2200ft. You'll get between 7 and 10 runs and achieve from 10,000 to 14,000 vertical feet given weather and group dynamics. The old growth trees are really well spaced and you gotta see how the ancient glaciers carved out ride and jib features, no park machines could make this stuff! The road builders and loggers do a remarkably good job managing the state's plantation access and viability. Our unique snowcat roads and very experienced operators, Eric and Craig make return ascents in roughly 10 - 20 minutes, that's just about long-enough to eat some fresh and hot Thor's Pizza!
