Snowcat boarding & skiing at Baldface Lodge in Nelson BC

Share Button

This last week a couple lucky retailers from all across the country got to experience Baldface Lodge for some catskiing and boarding thanks to Skullcandy.  The lodge is in Nelson BC, across the Canadian border north of Spokane, Washington.  Definitely make it a point to visit Baldface sometime in your lifetime, preferably while you are still spry and your knees are in tact, because this place is incredible.


View Larger Map

Man, how do you begin to describe this place??? There is varying terrain for all ability levels, 36,000 acres of bowls, peaks, and steep trees to be exact…let your imagination do the work!!!  If you took the best day on hill in your life, spinkle some world class meals, a dash of the coolest crew and great hospitality, top it off with a couple retailers and the Skullcandy crew and then multiply that by 3 you get one of the best trips ever!  Its not your typical resort operation. After 3 days here with Jeff and his crew you’re gonna feel like you have a family up there at Baldface, they really make you feel like you’re at home.

The trip started out in Spokane, Washington where everyone pretty much flew in, where we had a charter bussed lined up and waiting to shuttle us north thru the border to Nelson BC.

Cold Smoke Mtn Festival

Share Button

Words & photos by K.C. Deane

Its Saturday night, about 8 o’clock, my friend and photographer Dan Brown is in Tahoe and we are just getting back from a long day of sledding and shooting photos. I’m hanging my gear out to dry, getting ready for the next day which should prove to be equally long, and hopefully as satisfying. Dan is unloading the days work onto his computer as everyone gathers around for show and tell. In my mind I’m thinking, “two more days and then a break for a day or two, hmmmm, I wonder why Grant hasn’t called about the BC trip he asked me about…tomorrows going to be a long day, up at 5am, gas the sleds, drive, get there at 7? earlier? Hmmmm well I guess 5 am will work.” I break my day dreaming to my phone ringing, Gunderson is calling. Grant asks me if I want to get some free heli time in and do a 4 day photo contest in interior BC. !!!!!!!!! The trip was a 4 day photo contest put on by Kootenay Mountain Culture, and was for the Cold Smoke Mountain Festival in Nelson, BC.

Last Week @ Stevens Pass – Updated!

Share Button

It’s been a frustrating season with the snow level struggling to stay lower than the bases of our local ski areas.  The season started strong in the Northwest with one of the earliest season openings in years.  Then we were let down, left waiting for something, anything.  We were still skiing on our rockered pow skis and boards even though the cement-like snow had set up to be quite firm.  Meanwhile, the east coast kept getting pounded with copious amounts of unwanted snow.

We were in denial.  El Nino isn’t real.  More recently, our pow skis had become wall art, the seasonal bike commuters started donning helmets to cruise to work, and I was hearing more flip flops flip flapping around the office.  Then it happened.  Just last week, it snowed.
