Area: Valkyr Range of the Southern Selkirk Mountains provides access to over 4,000 hectares of ski terrain with 8 unique ski zones to choose from on Naumulten Mountain, Mount Rollins and Mt. McBride. The variety of aspects, incline and length of runs found here can accommodate all ski touring agendas.

On the north and east aspects are big alpine bowls, steep couloirs and exciting treed skiing that the Selkirk’s are renowned for. On the south and west-facing slopes are mellower inclines with an endless variety of open treed glades. The ridges and folds of the mountain make for interchangeable and interesting runs. Most tours end with a ski down Naumulten’s west face to the lodge.

Situated at 2,210 meters on Naumulten Mountain the lodge can accommodate groups of 12 in six separate guest bedrooms. Five of the guest rooms have a double bed/twin bunk combination capable of sleeping couples or two singles. One room has a twin bunk only, suitable for two singles. All beds are outfitted with quality bedding including down duvets.

Amenities: Drying area, AC power, indoor toilet and shower, sauna, running hot water, satellite phone, VHF radio/repeater, wood heat, internet.
