A winter wonderland awaits you

Downhill skiing/snowboarding – ski at Kicking Horse is just a short drive from the lodge. However, more options are available for day trips to Ski Revelstoke, Banff and Lake Louise, as well as Panorama to the south of here, giving you the option of having a multi centered ski vacation, without having to relocate your accommodation.

Cross country skiing – the Golden Nordic club maintain numerous trails for the back country enthusiast as well as the many, many opportunities within the Blaeberry Valley countryside, just minutes from the lodge.

Snowmobiling – Golden is well renowned for all the snowmobiling opportunities, right on your door step and is becoming the nature choice for many snowmobilers because of its location and accessibility, along with his endless options of deep snowfalls, champagne powder and amazing scenery. Bring your own sled or rent one, you choice, but don’t miss out on this experience!
