We recently spent a week at Purcell Lodge -- our fourth winter visit! The skiing is wonderful, the guiding fantastic. The lodge itself is beautiful and wonderfully comfortable and spacious. There are plenty of showers, flush toilets, and sitting areas -- with lovely decor. The chef, Stefane, is not only a wonderful chef but also a wonderful host for the lodge. We miss his cooking now that we are home! If you don't ski, but like to snowshoe or ski tour, you should consider this lodge if you are looking for a backcountry winter experience. Enjoy the wood fired sauna, and the excellent beer and wine selection. And the peace and serenity.
