I was lucky enough to ski into Skoki Lodge in March of this year. It was amazing! I felt invigorated by the fresh air and brilliant scenery of the Rocky mountains! it was a lot of exercise, about 5 hours to get there on touring skis. Once you arrive you are greeted with such warm hospitality in true Alberta fashion. The main lodge is cozy and everyone hangs out together chatting, playing cards or reading by the fire. We stayed in a private cabin, the same one Price William and Princess Kate stayed in on their visit! There is no running water or electricity, so it is a basin wash and an outhouse for the loo. I would recommend bring some mole skin or band-aids if you are not used to ski boots - blisters a common for this trek. I cannot wait to do a summer hike in to compare. A very special place. Highly recommend for any outdoor winter lover!
