The Purcell Mountains offer immense variety in terrain, with plentiful ski runs both above and below tree line ideally suited to first-time and experienced heli skiers alike. The Bugaboos has 1,016 sq km of skiable terrain and an average annual snowfall of 12 metres.
The newly renovated lodge, built to optimise the striking views of surrounding granite spires and spilling glaciers, has a capacity of 44 skiers although non-skiers can also be accommodated. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and configured as double, twin or single rooms. The individual bedrooms are simple with no telephones or TVs but all have en-suite bathrooms with small baths and showers as well as hairdryers in each room. Typical evenings are spent enjoying the rooftop hot tub, or drinking in the views from the recently renovated horseshoe bar – dubbed the best après on earth!
