Interested in learning more about backcountry skiing? Our Wildhorse Cabin is perfectly situated for backcountry skiing adventures. Located high on Wildhorse Ridge we can ski tour from the cabin to the summit of Wildhorse Peak and beyond. Great for mini-avalanche courses, steep and deep skiing, snowmobile assisted skiing adventures with Wildhorse, and custom guided ski touring adventures. Available from December to mid April. Ask for more information. Photos from a group of 4 that did 2 days of ski touring and 3 days of catskiing

Rocking Horse

I like this photo. It shows a little of the type of terrain at Wildhorse Catskiing. Big mountains with some serious terrain and some great steep tree skiing all tucked tightly together. Yahoo!

Counting vertical or overloading the bliss meter

Skiing Wildhorse Peak for the first time this season. This line blows the bliss meter off the charts. It's only 400 feet but this one you will remember for a long time. Its all about quality not quantity. Wildhorse Catskiing is right in the center of the Kootenay Powder Triangle and the snow quality is some of the best and the terrain is simply mind-blowing. But don't take my word for it - check it out for yourself.

The endless snowfalls of March 2011

This winter has just continued from great skiing in December through January into February and then March we just got hammered and winter is showing no sign of slowing down. We had one day of sun this winter that was strong enough to put a crust on south facing slopes and then two days later it just dumped again and buried that so great skiing on all aspects again.
