If we receive a cancellation 120 days prior to your arrival, you will get a full refund minus a 25% booking fee per seat cancelled. Cancellations within 120 days of your trip date are 100% non-refundable. This includes trips cancelled due to any issues you encounter crossing the border. Please also note that most trip cancellation insurance policies do not cover this type of situation.
Guests who cancel have the option of finding a replacement to fill their seat. If the guest or Baldface is able to fill the seat, the cancelling guest will be refunded in full minus a $105 cancellation fee deducted from each refund made.
If final payment has not been received by October 1st, Baldface/Valhalla reserves the right to cancel the booking without notice and re-sell the space. There are no exceptions to this policy. All cancellations must be received in writing. Reservations will not be held until payment is received.
We understand that occasionally events occur that prevent you from joining us on your ski vacation. Please pay special attention to our Cancellation and Refunds Terms above. To avoid any financial hardship that an unexpected cancellation and interruption could cause, we strongly recommend purchasing Trip Cancellation/Interruption insurance to protect your trip investment. Trip Cancellation/Interruption costs about 5% of your trip cost and it’s well worth the peace of mind. Contact our preferred provider ‘Acera Insurance’ and they can provide you with a quote for Trip Cancellation/Interruption insurance.
There are no exceptions to our policies so we strongly suggest that all guests purchase trip cancellation insurance.

We are a backcountry lodge with restricted ability to get product off the mountain (via helis, sleds and boats!). Orders are shipped out as quickly as possible, generally within 1 week.
Any applicable duty for shipments outside of Canada is payable by the customer.
For guests who will be visiting the lodge, we can hold your order for pickup during your trip. You may return or exchange items during your trip but we cannot guarantee stock availability.
Required Skill Level
Baldface Lodge’s terrain requires intermediate/advanced-level powder skills in tight trees. If you’re not sure, give us a call. The only way to guarantee the speed/ability levels of your group is to book an entire snowcat with like-minded friends.
Guests will be riding up to 15,000 feet per day for three or four days straight and need to be in good physical condition. Consider a conditioning program to prepare for your trip. If you are unable to keep up with the group you may be asked to sit out and will not be reimbursed for any missed time in the cat.
The Valhalla Range — our rugged neighbour with the same deep snow quality — offers a huge variety of high alpine terrain where guests can expect consistent fall-line descents with big-mountain terrain features including chutes, cliffs, exposed lines, and just general gnar to take your riding to the next level! We will offer a same-day, in-and-out cat-shredding experience FOR ADVANCED AND EXPERT SHREDDERS, guided through the backcountry of the Valhallas.
Weather and ski conditions are impossible to predict so guests must be prepared to ride or ski anything. We do not groom any runs! If you have never shredded powder or shy away from it at you local resort, this is not the place to learn. Baldface and Valhalla terrain has lots of glades and trees – please be prepared to ride and ski in the trees!
