“Short & Sweet”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Had a very nice stay this weekend at Palliser lodge. We had a two bedroom unit with an outdoor hot tub. The lodge has a common bbq as well as a fitness facility. The staff were lovely and quick to respond when I requested some extra amenities. All in all this was a nice trip away from the city and will return.

Stayed July 2012, travelled with family

Our family was traveling through Golden and decided to take the drive up and spend a night at Kicking Horse. We stayed in a one bedroom condo in Palliser Lodge. Check in is conveniently located at the main lodge (Glacier) and it’s a short one minute drive from there. The building is new and has great amenities. My only suggestion would be to turn the heat off in the hallways; it felt like bit like a sauna.

We will defiantly return!

My friend and I stayed at Palliser in the 2 bedroom suite for 9 nights. After traveling 14 hours we finally arrived at the Glacier Lodge to check in. The staff was great and offered to drive us to the Palliser, which was awesome because I was too tired to move and didn't want to haul all the luggage. The suite was very well equipped and had everything you need to be comfortable and if you plan on cooking, all the cooking tools you need will be there. The private hot tub on the balcony was fantastic. The Palliser is definitely ski in, but not so much ski out. You have to hike up this hill in the morning, in ski boots and that was not how like liked to start my morning. That is about the only negative thing I have to say about my stay. It would be nice if there was a rope tow or something. When we checked out the staff was great. The night before I asked if someone could come pick us up and take us to where the Brewster bus was doing to depart and they did, so super awesome! Oh, and I also loved the heated floors in the bathrooms! The boot dryer was awesome to have and the washer/dryer was also great.

Even though we had the full kitchen, we only used the microwave for breakfast oatmeal. The food at the General Store was so expensive--$4.99 for a dozen eggs?! Also, they ran out of chocolate milk mid-week, so I plan on stocking up on my next visit. It just made more sense to eat out. We ate at Peaks everynight, which was great. We were there for a long enough stay that we made friends with the locals.

I think one suggestion would be to have more information about taking the shuttle into town, or even getting like a dedicated shuttle to run to the grocery store, like every other evening. The General Store does have the necessities, but back to the prices, it's insanely expensive and limited varieties.

Room Tip: Go for the 2 bedroom suite with the private hot tub! You will be skiing so much and need the hot tu...

Ski in, ski out perfect location! Amazing Mountain, offer Ski/snow board for all levels.
Palliser offers condos & great rooms with access to ski lockers & a hot Jaccuzzi.
Ski rentals, restaurants, bar and a general store all available close-by, 5min. walking distance. Add a reservation at Eagles' Mountain Top restaurant for a memorable culinary experience & voilà!

p.s. Pallisser Lodge would require in-house guest service staff at desk + swipe cards that works...well.

p.ss Janitor at Palliser lodge was really nice.

We booked the glacier lodge which is at the bottom of the gondola and next to the bar and restaurant 4 months in advance. We were then moved to the palliser lodge, on seeing that it was a good 15 minute walk from the base we asked for our original room but were told we would have to move in the middle of our stay because they had no availability. It was hard to understand how they could not keep us in the room we booked so far in advance. The skiing looks amazing so it's just annoying that we did not get what we booked. Oh and king size bed is just 2 singles pushed together so I suggest a queen if you actually like your spouse/partner.
