PRESS RELEASE / Selkirk Wilderness Catskiing


Feature Short Film from the World’s Original Catskiing Operation and Sherpas Cinema Premieres Online, October 9, 2012!


Meadow Creek, BC – It’s finally here, the anticipated Selkirk Wilderness Skiing (SWS) feature short film by Sherpas Cinema will be officially released Tuesday October 9, 2012 at 9:00AM PST. The collaboration between SWS and the Sherpas Cinema began last fall with the focus on the creation of a short film promoting SWS, the world’s original snowcat operation, to the global ski and snowboard community.

“The Sherpas were the clear choice for this project. The unique style of their films, such as All.I.Can, and the passion they bring to their work showed us that they were fully capable of capturing the essence of Selkirk Wilderness Skiing,” says SWS Owner Brenda Drury “And they’ve done it!”

Shot at SWS this past winter, the film was written and directed by Malcolm Sangster and Eric Crosland. Well known ski and snowboard athletes Izzy Lynch, Johnny Collinson, Joey Vosburgh and Austin Ross star alongside SWS guests and the ever impressive Guiding Team lead by Jason Remple. The Sherpas have worked their magic to highlight the amazing terrain, awe inspiring powder, and enduring culture that makes SWS a leader in the industry, and gets to the heart of why guests keep returning year after year.

“It was a true honor to work with SWS over the past year,” says Sherpas Producer Malcolm Sangster. “We had experienced and heard stories about the amazing snowfall and varied terrain, but immersing ourselves in this project really offered much more as we learned about the rich history and family run vibe that makes SWS so special.”

“We have seen this terrain and met the staff/management/owners first hand and are blown away not just with the production value and story this video short shares-  further we are impressed with how authentic this comes across to what we experienced during our filming at SWS” – Catskiing Canada

Since 1975, Selkirk Wilderness Skiing has been known as the original snowcat operation. During the years since then, and with only 24 skiers per week, they have developed a loyal following as one of the finest experiences that a seasoned skier or snowboarder could hope to enjoy, and also the perfect place to try deep powder for the first time. Situated in the southeastern corner of British Columbia, about 90 minutes from Nelson, visitors to SWS can experience over 70,000 vertical feet of untracked bliss. The network of snowcat roads provides skiing within an area of 30 square miles (the size of Vail, Whistler and Blackcomb combined) with runs up to 4000 vertical feet.
