This is the source for Sentinel-centric videos, podcasts, and third-party coverage of our very special retreat centre. For those of you who have visited us and fallen in love with our piece of alpine paradise, we’ve included some selected podcast editions of Kootenay Co-op Radios weekly broadcast, Radio Free Kaslo — listening to these podcasts is a fun and sometimes inspirational way to stay in touch with The Sentinel’s cultural backyard!

Sentinel co-founder Richard Kay describes the idyllic scene down by the western shore of Kootenay Lake — fishing and meditation first thing every morning — what a blissful way to start the day!

(January 15, 2020) What if we brought together some of the world’s best snowboarders, hosted them here at The Sentinel, then let them loose on some of the most amazing runs in the world (courtesy of our partners at Stellar Heliskiing)? That would be cool, right?! Check out this video by Austen Sweetin & Sean Lucey! PS: You don’t have to be a world-class skier or boarder to have a fantastic time at The Sentinel in winter!
