Get away from the crowds at this fly-in wliderness lodge in the Rocky Mountains. In winter this lodge offers back-country ski and snowboard touring. Explore the deep powder of the remote peaks and valleys surrounding the lodge. There is a huge variety of terrain from incredible tree skiing up to high alpine, steep to gentle, long to short, fall line to varied, and aspects in all directions. We ski and snowboard in an elevation range between 2,520 meters (8,391 ft) at the highest point and 1,640 meters (5,461 ft) at the lowest point – a total elevation range of 880 meters (2,930 ft).
Although weather & snow quality can never be guaranteed, one of the important reasons to chose this area was its snow. First, we are located northerly, which gives us cooler temperatures. Second, we are uniquely located at the convergence of warm & moist Pacific air moving easterly towards us & cold air masses that hover over the iconic Columbia Icefields glaciers array that is just to the south of us, and this convergence creates the snow we all desire. Given those unique characteristics, in prior years when other lodge locations have been impacted by El Niño, we have had great skiing all season.
