Ymir Backcountry Ski Touring Lodge

Postby Mountain Mitch » Thu Mar 01, 2018 7:32 pm

We are all booked for our mid-March week at the Ymir Lodge http://www.backcountryskilodge.ca/ . It is in the Southern Selkirk Mountains, just south of Nelson BC. It’s a bit of a busman’s holiday as it’s really not too far from our home. But at least we know the conditions - we’ve had about 20 feet here so I expect at 6000 (lodge altitude) there will be a bunch! I’ll report back after the trip.

Mitch, sounds like an awesome ski vacation. I hope you're not like me and you actually take some photos! I look forward to the reports and hopefully some photos too. I had heard of the Ymir huts before, but it was in the days I was totally lift focused. What an awesome place to tour, lots of snow, with skiing both above and below lodge elevation. I wish it was closer to me.
Have fun,
