Itinerary:

Carlyle Lodge is located in the central part of Southern Selkirks, providing access to numerous alpine basins as well as sub-alpine and below tree-line skiing.  Offering a variety of aspects, half the terrain is open alpine, with the remainder being famous Kootenay old growth forest.  The lodge itself is situated at approximately 2200 metres, with the majority of skiing being between 1750 and 2600 metres.  Individual descents range from 200m-760m, with the average run being about 460 m.  Reviews of Carlyle focus on the variety of great terrain it offers and the quality of its powder (check out backcountryskiingcanada.com).  The lodge is reported to be comfy, with a modern kitchen and sleeping accommodation in a separate annex with four spacious bunk rooms.  This camp runs from Sunday to Sunday, and staging will be from Kaslo.  Contact camp manager Steve Fedyna at fedynas@shaw.ca for more details.


All RMS ski camps are self catered and self guided. AST2 or equivalent experience is required. We will continue our RMS practices which include an avi scenario upon arrival at the lodge. As well each participant is expected to perform personal snow assessments each day and actively participate in daily group risk assessment discussions. Copies of our daily assessment worksheets are available on the camps page of the section website and from the individual camp managers. They are a modified version of the ACMG morning guides worksheet, adapted for the RMS by the CAA.

 

Covid has added requirements for participants, including proof that you are fully COVID vaccinated and completion of a “Declaration of Health”. Other COVID requirements, such as negative rapid tests, may be required. As Federal and Provincial health regulations continue to change, we will need to be flexible to accommodate them.

 

If a trip gets cancelled or delayed after participants have paid, the financial impact varies depending on the lodge, but basically you should expect that any funds you have paid are likely non-refundable. If you have to cancel a trip after paying, the camp managers will make every possible attempt to find a qualified replacement who will refund your payment. Please consider seeking cancellation insurance.
