The Ski Lodge

Back-Country Ski Lodge
Our back-country ski lodge was designed by skiiers and built by craftsmen. The lodge is a roomy 2 1/2 story wood frame alpine ski lodge nestled in a picturesque alpine basin overlooking Lise Nicola Lake and Powder Creek Valley. We have 6 rooms and 15 comfortable beds in the main lodge for guest use.

Ski British Columbia

Getting here is half the fun. Fly into the international airport at Spokane WA. Arrange for a shuttle, or rent a vehicle and drive to Nelson. It’s a 4 hour drive to Nelson BC, the hippest small arts town in Canada.

From there, journey along the shores of the beautiful Kootenay Lake to the charming town of Kaslo. A helicopter will pick you up for a breathtaking ride into the Purcell Mountains and drop you off at Powder Creek Lodge.

After many trips into Powder Creek I am still amazed by this place. The terrain is wild and varied - trees, steeps, big tours, hidden bowls, - it's endless. I've had amazing over-the-head powder days well into April. The lodge is a perfect blend of comfort and function.
