Winter Has Arrived

It is 2016 and the winter season is in full swing! We rang in the New Year in style, welcoming guests at our lodges in the beautiful BC backcountry.

Many lodges were getting after it, carving first turns in beautiful early season powder and the great season has continued overall. Riding conditions have been excellent, feels like we are back into a ‘normal’ winter flow. Guests are exploring terrain, enjoying excellent ski touring, mountaineering, snowshoeing with the family, warm saunas, beautiful sunsets and much more!

If just thinking about the untouched powder has got you proper stoked, it’s not too late! Get in on the action by booking today to reserve your spot at one of our amazing lodges.
