A stay at the Hume is definitely worth the experience.  I have also stayed at the Best Western.  Cheap, easy walk to the Hume, and it does have a hot tub. Not much atmosphere but it gets the job done. You should be eating breakfast and lunch at WH2O and there are plenty of good alternatives for dinner downtown for very reasonable prices.

Yikes!
 
Sharon.  We stayed in the Dancing Bear the very first Valhalla trip.  Be prepared to sleep literally on top of one another.  Those rooms are really really small and the facilties are really really spartan.  How many are in your group
 
Based on my many years of experience organzing these things in Nelson, you are doing yoursef a disservice by not staying at the historic Hume Hotel downtown.  Huge rooms, great cheap food in three lounges or bars, killer included breakfasts with real food.
 
Seriously, it`s a part of the Nelson experience to stay at the Hume.
 
Don`t take my word for it, I`m sure other prior attendees will chime in.

We are staying at Dancing Bear because we are 6 people and we can have our own room, and use of the kitchen (one person with special dietary needs).
 
No hot tubs in Nelson :-(...but we'll go to Ainsworth for a soak that should last the remainder of the trip.

Paula is right. I remember it happening to our group at least once. I believe the skis arrived the following day. Enjoy the trip!  Be sure to check out Whitewater if you can make it to Nelson.

well, I got my skis packed up and ready to go to Fedex, then I learn that the place to have the skis delivered in WA isn't open on Sunday. So, that makes the decision easy. Will have to check the skis as luggage and keep my fingers crossed.

 

I checked with Paula at Big Red Cats and she said that airlines landing in Spokane will deliver to Canada...but sometimes it takes a few days. Renting skis isn't so terrible, but an added expense. I wonder if the airline will pay for ski rentals. I know they do in SLC. Hopefully I won't have to find out.
