Valhalla Powdercats - Catskiing In British Columbia (bc) Reviews & Ratings
Didn't get to ski because of conditions. These guys really took care if us though. Super impressed with their customer service. Will be back next year!
Today was amazing. I had an absolute blast!! Guides were awesome, terrain is awesome and the snow was just great!
Spring has arrived early in BC with daytime temperatures approaching 20°C. A nearby catskiing operation proactively cancelled my trip a few days prior due to the rising temps and deteriorating snow conditions, saying “most of it isn’t fun and some of it is dangerous,” so imagine my surprise when Valhalla told me they were still operational. So on this unusually warm March day, they were operating at full capacity, in their completely skied-out tenure, with knee-blowing crust everywhere. One of the guides called it “survival skiing” - how apt! I didn’t feel comfortable skiing anymore after a horrible first run so I had to sit in the cat all day. Our group ended up boot packing to reach skiable snow, which is ridiculous because you could easily do that without dishing out $500. It got so warm later in the day (it was 15°C at the top, so go figure) our cat could barely climb up the slushy roads. No one has control over how the snowpack evolves, but the fact that they chose to operate in such dangerous conditions when they had full access to weather forecasts is startling!
Steep. Deep. Best few days of skiing I’ve ever had.
Was a dream place to stay & ski I would highly recommend staying at the lodge it’s on top of the mountain. The food was amazing and they have a good selection of beverages. The time travelled to get to the lodge wasn’t too long and the scenery was well worth the wait. Not to mention the skiing is unreal.
