Description

The limestone spire peaks of the Three Bears rise above Island Lake like sentinels guarding a secret place. The meandering approach through snow-caked Old Growth forest and alongside bubbling brook adds to electric anticipation, which impresses both first-timers and veterans alike. Though only a few miles from Fernie B.C., the Cedar Valley, in which Island Lake sits, seems to be its own magical world. The local micro-climate produces an unusual amount of snow for this part of the Rocky Mountains, adding to the reputation of one of the most legendary backcountry lodges in North America'sland Lake Lodge Catskiing. Explore the history of the unique destination that inspired some of the snow industry? leading players in a pursuit of backcountry lines, deep powder and big mountain freedom.
