If you’re hungering for a winter holiday this year, but want to stay close to home, Island Lake Lodge offers the ideal getaway.
Where is the lodge?
At just fourteen kilometres from the town of Fernie, B.C. and 3.5 hours from Calgary, it’s only a hop skip and a jump to Island Lake Lodge’s powder paradise.
Experience the magic
Island Lake has been setting the standard for luxury backcountry skiing for over 30 years. The stunning terrain has been the inspiration for many iconic videos and photos.
This winter, the lodge’s existing exclusive guest experience has been augmented with various COVID-19 related protocols to provide the safest ski getaway possible. For a truly luxurious — and COVID cohort-friendly — retreat, ask about private snowcat trips and full lodge buyout options.
Island Lake’s legendary Rocky Mountain ski and snowboard terrain includes big alpine bowls as well as perfectly gladed tree runs — all blanketed by a stunning amount of snowfall. The area averages about 45 feet of snow per winter season. Skis and snowboards are provided, and two guides lead each group through the terrain. You don’t have to be an expert or extreme athlete to enjoy Island Lake. Ski trips are ideal for strong intermediate skiers or snowboarders.
In addition to world-class skiing, Island Lake is known for its high quality, unique and delicious culinary offerings. Guests stay in one of three beautiful log lodges with sublime, inspiring mountain views. A full spa and a high level of guest service round out the experience.
Island Lake is the ultimate, close proximity ski trip. Check cat skiing off your bucket list and give the friendly reservations team a call to book your winter escape.
