Nestled high in the Selkirks at 5400ft, Snowwater lodge is a remarkable 21-acre mountain oasis offering towering views of the Valhalla Range. Accessed only by helicopter, snowcat or snowmobile, it’s an exclusive retreat for just twelve guests at a time.
Initially established as a ski touring cabin, owner Patric Maloney and friends erected the main timber frame lodge in 1994. 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.
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. The hot water and outdoor hot tub are heated by a wood fired-boiler system. Bio diesel fuels our generators, as well as our snowcat, and recycling is practiced daily.
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.
