The transfer to Snowwater Lodge takes place at 4:30 pm via snowcat. This gives you enough time to get here in one day from almost anywhere in North America (breakfast at home; dinner at Snowwater!).
We are are only a 3 - 3 1/2 hour drive north of Spokane International Airport, WA. Many clients fly to Spokane, then rent a car and drive up to Canada. Others fly directly into Castlegar, a 15 minute drive from our office. Please contact us for more specifics.
Our joint Snowwater/Valhalla base is located at the junction of Highway 3A (between Castlegar and Nelson) and Highway 6.
Our office is also conveniently positioned between two great ski areas. Whitewater Resort (www.skiwhitewater.com)and Red Resort Ski Area (www.redrresort.com) are within a hour from our base. We are a 20-minute drive from Nelson or 45 minutes from Rossland.
There is free parking available while you are skiing/riding with us.
