Sweet powder, excellent crew and top notch gear and safety equipment was what greeted the group of 14 people that went Cat Skiing at Keefer Lake lodge Feb 5th, 2016. A very detailed safety orientation (use of probes/transceivers/shovels/avalanche packs) was the first thing we went through to ensure a safe and fun day. The snow was epic with fresh tracks each run and clear instructions on how to make it to the pick up spot safely. A great lunch was provided in the Cat to keep the day going and not miss out on any sweet tracks! Apres ski snacks were provided at the lodge that consisted of wings, baked brie, natchos with loads of cheese and fresh salsa. Everyone had fun and we will be back next year for sure! Thanks Jeff and Crew!

It was our first time cat skiing and it was an excellent experience! Our fearless guides, Jeff and Sarah made us feel very safe, and made it the best experience! Sarah did the best job of our safety training, and picking us up! from our crashes and helpful ski tips. We really appreciated using their new Vernon made skis, the avalanche air bags, walkie talkies, all included in the price.Can't wait to see the Lodge completed and have plans to try again next year with friends.
Easy car access made it an easy drive from Kelowna. Our lunch and snacks and apres ski appies by Chef Len were very tasty. The homemade salsa and veggie wraps were so good. We would recommend Keefer Lake Lodge Cat skiing to everyone, who wants a varied terrain ski or snow board.Thanks to Dave our driver for getting us all over the place and dealing with our skis.

I just finished a day with Keefer Lake Cat Skiing on Feb 2, 2016. Jeff and his crew was amazing hosts, Dave, Cory & Jesse were all a blast to spend the day with. They made my whole group feel comfortable from the moment we arrived at the lodge in the morning (5 mins later than they wanted to add), make sure to give yourself enough time when leaving Vernon!

Honestly the conditions were perfect, the people were great and the final touch at the end of the day with their great chef's spread was unbelievable. Myself and my group will be having big smiles and blow pow dreams for along time to come!!

Highly recommended. I can't wait to see what this place will be like next season with a new lodge!!

Just completed a great day at this rapidly evolving cat skiing operation. Owner has a great vision for this tenure and property. Had some amazing powder turns on open slopes and steep trees. Check it out.

The terrain is demanding (mostly steep, sometimes tight trees), the guides expect you to know why you came (shredding, not learning), the vibes are great (extremely helpful, cool people), and the powder doesn't disappoint, even when it's wet and nasty at the bottom. Their snowcats are top-shape, practically new. Fantastic catskiing if you know what you are doing.
They provide all safety equipment (including avalanche "air bags"), the guides' commitment to safety is the best I've seen anywhere, and yes, they would rescue for free, coming in their snowcat if your car gets stuck on the snowy road to the base (it happens every other day, we were told).
In a few months, the new luxurious lodge will be finished, and their prices next season will be just decent - but now, it's a huge bargain, especially for US visitors - so book it if you can!
