About Baldface Lodge

Steep, deep, tree skiing in old-growth forests that have been described as "God-gladed".

Baldface is an exclusive snowcat skiing and snowboarding lodge where wilderness dreams come true. With 36,000 acres of powder terrain in the heart of BC's renowned Selkirk Mountains, Baldface is one of the world's largest snowcat operations. Escorted by certified guides, guests experience untracked bowls, peaks, and trees in an area that receives an average seasonal snowfall of 42 feet! Expect up to 18,000 vertical feet of deep powder turns each day, with the final run leading to the cozy high-alpine timber frame lodge and private chalets. Situated at 6,750 feet above sea level, the lodge offers gourmet food, spectacular views, outdoor hot tubs and sauna, plush leather furniture, a cozy wood stove, massage therapy, goose down duvets, and plenty of space to relax in after a day on the slopes. The lodge is a quick 5-minute helicopter flight from the charming town of Nelson where quaint shops, fine restaurants, friendly pubs, and local ski areas round out the perfect vacation.
