We STRONGLY recommend that you purchase trip cancellation and interruption insurance upon booking. Please note that most insurance providers will offer the most comprehensive insurance if you purchase trip insurance immediately after paying for your trip to Selkirk Lodge. A delay in purchasing insurance may leave you with a less desirable insurance policy that offers less coverage.

A ski touring trip in BC is, without doubt, an amazing adventure. However, it doesn’t have to be a risky leap of faith into the unknown. Purchasing the appropriate travel, cancellation, trip interruption, and medical insurance for your trip is a critical step in protecting your investment and ensuring you peace of mind.
While we work to mitigate the risks associated with these types of adventures, there is no substitute for comprehensive trip insurance to take care of any unforeseen expenses that may arise due to trip cancellation, trip interruption, emergency evacuation and medical coverage.
It is vital to get comprehensive insurance to cover any trip you take, but especially a backcountry adventure. As you will be out in the mountains everyday, it’s crucial that you have a policy that includes backcountry skiing/snowboarding and emergency evacuation, as well as appropriate medical coverage if you reside outside of British Columbia. Please ensure that your insurance also covers unexpected losses or expenses e.g. lost luggage, stolen cash and credit cards or cancelled/missed flights.
Selkirk Lodge does not offer refunds for cancellations, does not cover any emergency evacuation costs, and does not refund any money for trip delays or interruption. We STRONGLY recommend that you purchase a trip insurance policy that covers you for cancellation, trip interruption, emergency evacuation and medical expenses.
