The hot springs were first visited by the Ktunaxa First Nations peoples who experienced the waters as a welcome respite after a long day of hunting, fishing, and gathering roots and berries in what is now known as the Kootenay region. The Ktunaxa First Nations peoples embraced the nupika wu’u, or hot mineral waters, for their healing and rejuvenating powers and Ainsworth Hot Springs has been welcoming guests since the 1930s.

Sandon is a ghost town in southern British Columbia, Canada. It is home to Western Canada’s oldest continuously operating hydroelectric station.

Sandon is the glorious heart of B.C.’s famous Valley of the Ghosts. The former wild silver mining town was once a wild, wild place with saloon and casino brawlers living up to the town’s brazen hell-raising image as the heart and soul of the Silvery Slocan. The West Kootenay wilderness community, nestled along a creek bank in a narrow valley, is today mostly still and hauntingly quiet.

Valkyr Adventures is owned and operated by Martin and Shelly Glasheen who have made their home in the foothills of the Valkyrs since 1977. Starting from scratch we build a homestead and raised our two children in the mountains. Martin’s vision to create a series of cabins in the mountains was hatched in the late ‘90’s and finally made it through the provincial application process in 2003 when we obtained our Commercial Licence of Occupation to operate our Adventure Tourism business. Each lodge is handcrafted and built from locally sourced timber. Construction began with falling the trees and milling them on our Woodmizer sawmill into posts, beams and dimensional lumber. All the building material had to be trucked up the mountain on logging roads then flown into the building site by helicopter. Needless to say it takes a monumental effort to build lodges in the alpine! We’ve done it not once, not twice but three times! Valkyr Lodge opened in winter 2005, Hilda Hut in 2012 and The Outpost in 2017. It has been a rewarding experience and it has given us great pleasure to host our ski touring and alpine hiking guests up at our mountain retreats.
