Winter Adventure


 Cross Country Skiing

Most communities in the area offer cross-country skiing; Barnes Creek between Fauquier and Edgewood, Wensley Creek Ski Trails closer to Nakusp, Mt. MacPherson (South of Revelstoke), and the Upper Brouse Road area Southeast of Nakusp are but a few that offer trails. 

 Downhill Skiing

Only 70 minutes from Galena Shores, Revelstoke Mountain Resort offers world-class skiing and boarding with annual snowfall of from 40’-60’ (13m-20m) and the longest serviced vertical in North America of 5,620’ (1,700m).


For those seeking more of a challenge, local helicopter skiing companies will whisk you and your friends high into the backcountry, where the finest virgin powder snow lies. Discover the perfect location deep in the mountains where the big snow falls and tree skiing is legendary. 


Sledders from all over the world make the pilgrimage to the Revelstoke area (30 minutes), Trout Lake (20 minutes), and Silver Cup (30 minutes) from Galena Shores.  There is so much snow at Trout Lake (50' 15M) the locals shovel their roofs off so their chimneys can breathe. This is big snow country. If that is what you are looking for, there is no place like Galena Shores. Dazzling waterfront in the summer and bottomless powder in the winter.


With 4' - 8' on the 70 acre park attached to Galena Shores, no problem snowshoeing from December - March!  Just don't get too close to the waterfront.  Since Arrow Lakes do not freeze, there is seldom any snow on the waterfront.  However, once every few years the edges of Galena Bay will freeze if it is a particularly cold and snowy winter.  Galena Bay is only 110' deep and has a very gradual drop to the centre of the bay.
