Thursday, March 18, 2021


Spring springs this coming Saturday and with it, all kinds of fun events to liven up some of your remaining ski treks around Galena Lodge.

  • Galena Lodge is staging its annual World Loppet on Sunday, March 21. Skiers are invited to ski 25 kilometers worth of trails round the perimeter, including Rip and Tear and Horse Creek. Donuts and margaritas will be provided out on the trails, and there will be a poker run to boot.

    Costumes are encouraged, along with masks. So, maybe Batman, Cat Woman this year?

    The event starts at 10 a.m., but you don’t have to toe an actual starting line at that time as social distancing will be encouraged.

  • The 19th Annual Ride Stride Glide winter triathlon will be held Saturday, April 3. Fun lovers are encouraged to participate as a team or go solo as they bike 9 kilometers around Jenny’s Way, run for 4.5 kilometers out Gladiator and Western Home Glade and ski for 9 kilometers along Rip & Tear and Psycho.

    There is a kid’s course, too. And, of course, costumes are encouraged.

    Cost is $25 for a solo racer or $60 for a three-person team and we’re told the entry includes a mug of soup.

    Proceeds support the Galena Youth Adventure Camp Scholarship Fund.

  • An Easter Egg Hunt will cap Easter Sunday on April 4. That also is the day Galena Lodge will close for the winter season.

The hunt will begin at 10:30; pint-sized hunters are asked to bring their own baskets.

Skiing and snowshoeing on the BCRD/Galena Lodge trails are free for the remainder of the season, thanks to a generous donation from Peter and Quin Curran.


Galena Lodge will start up its Thursday Night BBQs on June 24. Galena Summer Camps are currently sold out but a waiting list has been started. The lodge is currently taking bookings for its Summer Yurts.
