Fantastic experience, great off-the-grid lodge with good food and friendly helpful staff. Stayed 3 nights. XC skied and snowshoed. Made the mistake of not bringing my alpine touring gear. Food is pretty good and excellent if you consider the setting. 15K XC ski in is totally do-able with good grooming. Lodge generates it's own power and filters water so limited hours of operation for both. Limited cellular connectivity but possible if you really need it. So much terrain so close and accessible for winter pursuits. Wood fire sauna with river nearby is super. Pool table, ping pong, darts, and games available. Shared bathroom was totally chill and we didn't run into any sharing issues that can occur in hostels and auberges. More snow and better quality than Whistler down the road. It snowed hard for 4 days so we didn't get to see the surrounding range or peaks but will be back for a bluebird.
