Icefall Lodge, BC

Icefall Lodge, British Columbia

A backcountry touring lodge and home of the 7,500-foot run.

Over the course of three days, guide Karl Salter is able to serve up a smorgasbord of terrain to guests of all abilities. Runs transitioned from open, alpine bowls, to steep tree runs. For the adventurous in our group, Karl delivers big-mountain lines and spines that are reminiscent of  coastal British Columbia and Alaska. There are open powder runs, huckable cliff drops, and plenty of tree jibs to keep the youth in the group stoked.

Ski Hard, Relax Hard at Skoki Lodge

We brought our snorkels to Lake Louise’s Skoki Lodge and found way more than deep snow.

After an epic day of skiing on New Year’s Eve, the Cariboo guides declared it was the best early season snow they could remember (this from a group of grizzled guides who collectively share over 100 years of experience). It was only day three of the 2009-2010 season.
