Exciting, dynamic and Young. The K2 Rotor Lodge and the Kootenays in Canada are all that and more. What’s on offer is truly paradisiacal for hardcore skiers and boarders. Small-group heli-skiing, steep shots and pillow drops – a paradise for freeriders.
The Kootenays in Canada extend from the Okanagan Valley in the west to the Alberta boundary in the east. The area takes in the four mountain ranges of the Selkirks, Purcells, Monashees and Rockies. The diverse mountain landscape has an expanse of over 1,155 square kilometres, at altitudes of between 1,060 and 2,880 metres. The average snowfall in the area is 18 metres per year. It’s no wonder that it offers thrill-seekers almost 300 mapped runs with 90% alpine and 10% forest. This area lends itself to small-group heli-skiing, because its diversity offers the best opportunities for steep shots and pillow drops.
The village of Nakusp in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada, is on the shore of Upper Arrow Lake, part of the Columbia River. The paradisiacal mountain scenery and the nearby hot springs make the location a popular destination for winter fans, both young and young at heart. K2 Rotor Lodge is the newest CMH lodge and a reflection of its guests – exciting, dynamic and youthful. With modern, en suite rooms, it is a comfortable retreat for 45 guests. For the well-being of its guests, the lodge has a Jacuzzi, thermal springs and offers various massages. All of the rooms in the lodge have WiFi access. The hip bar is an inviting place to have a drink together in the evening, and share your small-group heli-skiing experiences.
