Mustang Powder is easily accessible by major highways from either the east or the west. Regional and international airline service is also available to Kelowna International Airport with direct flights from Vancouver, Calgary, Seattle, Toronto and Honolulu. Car rentals are available at the airport, or for larger groups, bus service may also be obtained.
Mustang Powder Cat Skiing guests will meet at the Skyline Truck Stop, 44 km west of Revelstoke or 28 km east of Sicamous. This is near Craigallachie, site of the “last spike” in the Canadian Pacific Railroad. Guest vehicles will be left at the Skyline Truck Stop.
Prior to January 5 we travel from the Skyline truck stop to the lodge via company bus and snowcat. From January 5 untill the end of the season we go via helicopter. This will cost an additional $200 CAD for the return trip. Since the helicopter flight is weather dependent it will be paid directly to Glacier Helicopters after your trip once we know if you were able to fly in and out.

If you plan to travel from the east, please note that during the winter time Roger’s Pass is especially susceptible to delays and closures. For this reason, we recommend that guests do NOT fly into Calgary and ski in the Rockies prior to your trip. It is much more sensible to fly into Kelowna and ski Big White or Silver Star – since there are no high mountain passes between these resorts and Mustang Powder.

Guests who want to travel between Kelowna and the lodge via helicopter should organize this directly with the helicopter company and inform us by email once they have done so.
Can I leave earlier if I have to?
Mustang is a VERY remote lodge and logistics are challenging and often extremely difficult. We do guest exchanges with snowcats and helicopter, but to get a single person out to civilization by snowmobile is usually difficult, and often impossible via snowmobile since they get stuck if it is snowing lots. Snowcats and a helicopter can make it out much easier. Furthermore we only get our access road ploughed for guest exchange dates, and it is often impassable on other days (if it snowing lots). So the answer is yes, but only if you pay for a helicopter to come in and pick you up. The price would be slightly less than $1000.
