Boarders should use a special backcountry board, preferably with step-in bindings and your stance set as far back as it can go. Again, you’ll need to bring your own snowboard boots and bindings.
However, if you don’t feel like skiing or boarding there are plenty of things to do in and around Retallack. Some of the nearby towns – such as artsy, laid-back Nelson, history-rich New Denver or up-and-coming Kaslo – are well worth a visit. Or you can take a long, relaxing soak at Ainsworth Hot Springs, visit local scenic spots such as Kootenay Lake, go snow-shoeing among our 800 year-old cedars, or just chill out at the lodge. See our local attractions section for more information.
Retallack is pleased to recommend a trip interruption, cancellation, and rescue insurance. Please note that insurance must be purchased when you make the deposit payment for your trip. You can access the online insurance application here.
Please note that no insurance provider currently provides an insurance policy that covers inclement weather during your catskiing or boarding trip. Retallack reserves the right to cancel at any time without notice. Under no circumstances is Retallack responsible for the guest’s inconvenience or travel expenses in this situation.
