Located in the Osoyoos Region of British Columbia, Mt. Baldy sits in the heart of one of Canada’s only wine producing regions, as well as year-round golf, and rich local history. Mt. Baldy also sits near one of the most massive moutain ranges in North America, the Purcell mountain range, providing an unlimited amount of backcountry skiing opportunity. This camp caters to the intermediate as well as advanced skier, for those of you who need a little more instruction and technical work before you venture into the steep or extreme skiing realm. A great camp for those whom would like to join Jessica in a less intimidating mountain environment, while benefiting from the depth of experience she shares with each individual. Also a great camp to get you moving towards some of our other more advanced camps such as Beartooth Pass, La Grave, and Alaska.
In addition, we take advantage of the local wine country and spend Saturday evening tasting new wines from the local Okanogan region.
Lift tickets, instruction/coaching/guiding, and Saturday night wine and cheese social included in the package. *Discounts available for local Okanogan residents. Please inquire: firstname.lastname@example.org or www.skibaldy.com
