Galena Lodge is well known amongst the fun-loving hardcore skiers of the powder scene. While its advanced terrain is certainly the draw, this cozy lodge's infamous Ping-Pong tournaments and evening shenanigans equally share its reputation for fun. Galena skiers and snowboarders can expect classic Selkird terrain all day long; steep pitches, silent pines, pillow lines and bottomless snow at every turn.
Skiing and Boarding
All Galena skiing is done in the Badshot Range of the Selkirks, offering abundant snow, ultra-deep powder, varied terrain, challenging tree skiing, rugged beauty and overall quality skiing. The trees, drop-offs and snow are legendary and galena has a reputation for fun at the lodge - just ask any hardcore guests who come back to Galena year after year.
Galena terrain brings the best out of both guides and guests. The guides typically explain the run from the top and point out the pickup and specific hazards before disappearing from sight in a ball of swirling snow crystals. It would be easy to mistake their hell-bent blast to the next strategic stopping spot as irresponsible, but in fact their reasoning is just the opposite.
Skier Level: While not restricted to experienced Heli-Skiers, Galena is recommended for strong, aggressive skiers only. Skiers and boarders who are new to CMH should only consider Galena if they are technically strong and experienced, physically fit and capable of handling steep tree runs of up to 50 degrees.
