YOUR BEST CHANCE FOR FRESH TRACKS
British Columbia is renowned as the cat skiing mecca of the world and Skeena Cat Skiing is the only operation in Northern BC. Locally owned and run, Skeena has been open since 2011, and operates from a backcountry basecamp located at the tree line. We have one of the largest and most skiable tenures in the province. Guests enjoy direct access to the basecamp via helicopter directly from Smithers airport, making it one of the quickest cat ski lodges for guests to access by air.
The unique basecamp setup delivers not only fantastic cat skiing, but an entire wilderness experience. Our chef creates gourmet meals using local and organic ingredients. And our staff are unique, very experienced, and tons of fun.
Skeena’s ski tenure is located 80km directly north of Smithers, BC and approximately 200km from the Alaskan border. The tenure area is approximately 30,184 hectares of pristine terrain and offers incredible tree skiing, natural glades, open bowls and steep slopes. Existing runs have lengths up to 3,600 feet, and guests get up to 15 runs per day, with average daily vertical of 15,000 feet – and this is before the expansion plans!
The warm, moist Pacific air collides with the cold, dry air from the interior creating huge dumps of perfect powder snow. The surrounding mountains further enhance the accumulation. If it’s snowing anywhere in BC, it’s most likely snowing at Skeena!
