Say an interview with a "weather expert" who said that due to La Nina,the western part of Canada,from the west coast to Lake Superior can expect an Epic winter.
Valhalla has a bigger tenure and more steep terrain than Big Red Cats. The snow is roughly the same although I think Valhalla has a little higher elevation and is closer to White Water so there might be some slight advantage there. Valhalla is also now owned by SnowWater so, if you're so inclined, you might want to consider looking at a combined deal. SnowWater also does combined trips like (1) day heli, (2) days cat (or something like that) if you're considering stepping it up a bit. In any case, you really can't go too wrong anywhere in the Nelson area.
And yes, La Nina is a babe
