Mountain Skiing

Looking to hit the slopes at our local ski hills? Check out the increasingly popular Revelstoke Mountain Resort which offers North America’s most vertical skiing and versatile terrain with the best snow. http://www.revelstokemountainresort.com/

Looking for something a little more tame? Practice your moves on Summit Lake Ski Hill just outside of the quaint village of Nakusp. This is a great option for a casual day of skiing or for little ones or beginners.http://www.skisummitlake.com/

Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing

Who says snow has to keep you off those  trails? Backcountry ski enthusiasts rave about the surrounding area, our wilderness, the wild hidden hotsprings to explore…. From the resort a set of snow shoes can take you up onto trails and ridges. Check out what the Backcountry Magazine has to say about Halcyon Hot Springs. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and crisp mountain air while out for an afternoon of cross country skiing or snowshoeing. Here’s where to rent the equipment and where to go!

Halcyon Hot Springs Village and Spa – That’s right! We rent out snowshoes right here at the resort. Though our trails are not groomed it still makes for a good short walk, or take them to other places in the near area for an afternoon day trip.
