Snowcat skiing was pioneered in 1975 by Allan and Brenda Drury in the small community of Meadow Creek, BC. Selkirk Wilderness Skiing (SWS) is situated in the south east corner of British Columbia, 1 1/2 hours north of Nelson.
Over the past 40 years, the Drurys and now the Osaks their staff at Selkirk Wilderness Skiing have developed a loyal following amongst deep powder skiers and snowboarders looking for an alternative to both lift-serviced and helicopter skiing and riding.
SWS contains a well established network of snowcat roads, providing skiing within an area of 30 square miles (the size of Vail, Whistler and Blackcomb combined) with runs up to 4000 vertical feet. The short ride between runs is just enough time to relax, share a story, and wipe your goggles free of snow.
