I've been to many backcountry ski lodges in the area from Golden to Revelstoke, and without doubt this is the best taking into account accomodations and skiable terrain in the immediate vicinity. The lodge is a magnificent place combining sound engineering with beautiful aesthetics. The skiing in the immediate vicinity of the lodge is incredible with terrain suitable for all levels of skiers. Plentiful snow, galciers,and lower tree runs offer a varied ski terrain covered in deep, fluffy powder. Dave, owner an guide, is a master at matching route to skier ability, offering just enough challenge while maximizing fun. Meals are bountiful, and entirely appropriate for a country lodge. This definitely will be our destination for all future trips to ski lodges in BC.
