We have a selection of Skevik skis and DPS Skis for you to use at no charge. Skevik skis are made in Vernon B.C. Our fleet includes the Anton, Oda, and Loken. They are made for deep powder snow; you may just want to take a pair home. Please note that you are responsible for any loss, damage, or breakage of demo/rental equipment. In the event of loss or damage you will be responsible for repair or replacement charges. BRING YOUR OWN BOOTS.
You may already have a board but it might not be built for riding powder. We have a limited selection of snowboards from Capita. They are purpose built powder boards that you will be sure to love. (WE DON’T RESERVE EQUIPMENT IN ADVANCE)...and please remember to bring your BOOTS! We also have a selection of Burton and Yes Snowboards.
All guests at Keefer Lake Lodge are given a BCA Float pack avalanche airbag to use during their trip. These packs are mandatory and come complete with shovel, probe and water bottle. You will have enough room to store extra layers as well. You will be shown how to fit and deploy the pack by one of our guides.
Guests can not bring their own packs.
Each guest is given a BCA Tracker 2 avalanche transceiver. At the beginning of each tour all guests go through training that show you how to use the device, get familiar with it and how to wear it. Each night after skiing our guide team checks each beacon and makes sure it is functioning properly and has fresh batteries.
No need to bring your own transceiver, it is mandatory that you use the ones provided by Keefer Lake Lodge Catskiing.
Stay in touch, stay safe. All guests have a radio with them at all times out in the field to communicate with the guides, other guests, or the lodge. These radios are pre-programmed and easy to use. We will show you how to properly use them during your guide briefing.
