Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park is located on the Powder Highway in the Selkirk Mountains in the West Kootenays region of British Columbia. It was established in 1922 and is one of the oldest provincial parks in B.C. With an area of 320 square kilometres this park has unlimited hiking and mountaineering in summer and ski touring in winter. The former Canadian ski Team training grounds is Kokanee Glacier where the park gets it's name sake from. This glacier offers year round ski touring if you have the legs for the twenty kilometre round trip hike in and out. If not then Kokanee Glacier Cabin offers budget overnight accommodation in a first class backcountry lodge setting. The Alpine Club of Canada manages bookings and reservations for the cabin. In summer the cabin fills up quickly so reserve your spots early. In winter you need to enter a lottery in order to win a spot at the cabin which costs approximately $800 since access is via helicopter only.
