Last trip of Winter, Valhalla Lodge
It's been almost 6 weeks since we were at Valhalla Mtn lodge in South Columbia BC. That trip became my last Winter trip this season, hopefully I can still catch some Spring snow when this home-stay will be lifted. Anyway, you can browse some photos while being stuck home.
The lodge is located due NW of Nelson BC about 30 linear-miles, also due West of Kokanee Park. Janie gathered 10 of us, 4 on tele, pretty rare these days. There are many slopes skiable within easy reach from the hut, both alpine and tree runs. Here is an official map with named runs:
Rhino peak behind:
The snow pack was deep this year and fairly stable though many alpine slopes were wind-packed. Looking East toward Valhalla Prov Park:
One sunny powder day:
Skiing was great below treeline all week except one day after strong wind overnight.
A few clear evening:
Many of us skied over 30k', pretty good for an old tele guy. There are too many photos to post, more here: Valhalla 2019
