A long load of construction supplies arrives at the yurt. The Pisten Bully is a real work horse and has run well for us. It's passenger box has comfortable seats for 10 skiers.Copy of Guide's Map for the North Blue ski runs

We love our new Prior Husume skis handmade and custom ordered in Whistler, the new xtc carbon platform is fun but light, lively but damp and fast but smooth. The ACMG custom top sheet is a conversation starter with it's very Canadian symbolism. They are without a doubt the most fun skis we have ever used! We mounted them with inserts so we can Tele or Alpine Ski them.

Season of the deep snow 2012

One of our February groups discovered the "Northwest Passage" ski run that devours up a nice 1100 meter descent.

Our guests have been enjoying epic powder conditions so far this season. The snowpack at the lodge, as of March 16th, has reached 375 cm with over 500 cm at tree line, here in the Cariboos. Shovelling has been epic at times as well.
