Operation Overview

Retallack is located in the heart of the Selkirk Mountains and is renowned as having some of the best ski/snowboard terrain and snow in the world. Overall the terrain at Retallack is steep and possesses numerous features that are only suitable for advanced to expert skiers. Retallack is particularly known for its consistent powder snow, steep tree skiing (which includes 800 year old cedars), and pillow lines. We are proud to be 100 percent owned by skiers, snowboarders, and mountain bikers, including legendary pro skiers Seth Morrison and Tanner Hall.
