Battle Abbey - A Backcountry Powder Skiers' Paradise in the Selkirk Mountains
In 1978 Bill Putnam and Hans Gmoser built a back country mountaineering hut in the heart of the Selkirk Mountains. Over the years it has evolved into an eclectic skiers' paradise. Imagine a remote, rugged valley enclosed by majestic glaciated peaks. High on a forested shoulder, at the foot of one of the glaciers, there is a comfortable back country lodge. Surrounding the lodge, nothing but peaks, sky and a deep valley to the north. Endless runs to ski and places to enjoy. Its a private mountain playground. Have a look for yourself.
