Backcountry Base Camp
The First and Only Backcountry Cat Skiing Camp in Canada!
"Great food, superb guides, expert cat driving...thanks for doing it so well!"...L & S, Salmon Arm, B.C.
Skeena Cat Skiing Base Camp is positioned approximately half way up the Gail Ridge ski area at 1200 metres. The location is sufficiently sheltered by the trees and land formations and it's proximity to a glacial stream provides water for the camp. Step out of your tent and into the snowcat!
The heart beat of Base Camp is the powerful 46 kilowatt, 3 phase power generator which supplies electricity to all the quonsets, as well as to the water pump supplying running water (hot and cold) to the kitchen area and shower house.
Camp consists of 6, quonset style "bedroom" guest tents, each with 2 single beds, a heater, coat rack, night table and electrical outlet. Comfortable bedding and towels are supplied.
The 24 x 32, "Common" tent provides ample space for the kitchen, dining and lounging area. The woodburning space heater provides the heat as well as a cozy atmosphere. A cold air boot dryer is also located in the common tent. Internet is available upon request.
The shower house has 2 shower stalls and 2 sinks with the water being heated by an on demand system. Skeena Cat Skiing supplies organic shampoo, conditioner and soap.
"Great team, great place! I would even say "THE PLACE TO BE!" J.C. Sevrier, France
