Self Guided Snowmobile Experiences
January – April 2020
Brrppp … Snowmobile enthusiasts find Kaslo is right in the center of some of the best mountain terrain in the area. West Kootenay Highways 3A, 31A and 31 all provide access to the back country, and this package includes a Snowmobile Map developed by the Kaslo Hotel.
ALWAYS check with Avalanche Canada for latest conditions!
The closest non-groomed sledding area along Hwy 31A is accessed approximately 15km west of Kaslo at the base of Blue Ridge. Well signed forestry roads lead to the top of Mt. Buchanan, where you will discover awe inspiring views and often sunshine when the valley bottoms are clouded over. Locals use this area for sled accessed back country skiing.
Other popular areas include: the Empire cabin and bowl area, on Mt. Henkels; Meadow Mountain, famous for its high altitude and deep snow that lasts into the spring; and, groomed trails south of Kaslo (towards Nelson) – can all be accessed within 60 minutes of the hotel.
Finish off your day with a meal and drink around the crackling fire in the Hotel’s pub, and then have a soak in the Hotel’s outdoor hot tub!
