Initially established as a ski touring cabin, owner Patric Maloney and friends erected the main timber frame lodge in 1993. Handcrafted from larch and fir timbers, it's a solid structure able to withstand any storm. Add fresh flowers, local artwork, leather furniture and fine dining, and the mystique of our haven begins to take shape.
Our guests have exclusive use of the buildings and facilities, and enjoy the camaraderie of only a dozen fellow skiers or riders. We offer all the creature comforts of city living, while maintaining the privacy and peacefulness of a wilderness mountain hideaway.
A key chapter in our story, is a commitment to sustainability and reducing our footprint to help preserve the very nature that makes our wilderness experience one of the best in the world. A spring-fed micro-hydro system powers our pristine off-grid location in the spring, summer and fall. We compost all our kitchen waste and recycle everything we possibly can. You will enjoy endless hotwater on demand, infloor heating and our new state-of-the-art stainless steel hot tub waiting for you at the end of each day.
Other companies buy carbon credits. For the past 23 years, we have owned a forestry business where we collect millions of seedlings each year for reforestation. In this way we hope to offset our carbon emissions.
You will enjoy the luxury of fine linens, down duvets and pillows, and all natural EO bath products. Each room has 2 queen beds, infloor heating and big picture windows. Your ensuite includes a sink, shower and toilet. We also offer Egyptian cotton robes weatherproof boots and shoes for easy lodge living. Complimentary body care products are provided, as is high speed wireless internet and cell phone access keep guests connected, if you must. There are dedicated drying rooms for boots, gloves and outerwear. Guests tend to rave about the high standard of accommodations, and about the genuine ‘family feeling’ hospitality at our lodge. Add to that the quirky non-stop humour of certain individuals, and you start to see what you're in for!
