Snowfall Lodge is situated in a remote corner of the Selkirk Mountains south of Rogers Pass and east of Revelstoke. The staging for Snowfall is near Beaton, south of Revelstoke. It is a remote corner of the Selkirk Mountains with big glaciers, long runs and widely spaced tree skiing. As the name suggests, it gets legendary snowfall.
It is a bright, spacious three story building with much of the lumber milled on site. It is the perfect location for accessing tree skiing or higher alpine and glacier terrain. You can start the day by skiing right out the front door or end the day with a long run down to the lodge. The lodge is heated by a woodstove. It has a spacious boot room and a large stretching area. There is an indoor pee toilet.
There is a separate drying room that will get all your gear dry after a snowy soggy day skiing. It has a propane heater and extra electric power to heat the room. A rack for drying boots and gloves blows are into them. Best of all, the moist, smelly air is vented outside.

Snowfall Lodge sits west of the divide in a remote corner of the Selkirk Mountains. It is east of Revelstoke and just south of Glacier National Park and Rogers Pass. It is on the north flank of Battle Mountain and has lots of due north facing terrain that skis right down to the lodge.
The highest peaks in the area are over 2800m and are draped with eight separate glaciers. Several peaks offer ski lines right from the summit. There is a huge variety of terrain, from gentle alpine bowls to steep couloirs and pillow lines. Further down, you get into tree skiing, some of the best anywhere. Some runs are steep with pillows, and others are mellow. The forest has never been logged and is naturally widely spaced. A forest fire in 2017 created a large area of burn skiing north of the lodge.
As the name suggests, Snowfall gets a lot of snow. It is west of the divide in the Selkirks and gets a deep, reliable snowpack. The ski season starts in mid-November and goes until May. There is usually still snow at the lodge in late June.
