Snowfall Lodge Review

Due to the cold temps, the exchange is delayed here at Snowfall Lodge today, so I’ll make use of the down time and add another review.  

We just wrapped a week of guided skiing here at Snowfall Lodge.

Over the week, we had over 100cm of storm snow followed by temperatures plummeting to -32C. Needless to say, we didn’t get to experience as much of the alpine as I would have liked; but the tree line and tree skiing we did get to do was fantastic. Lots of old growth tree lanes, pillows and the opportunity to ski runs in excess of 1000m. Home drainage runs with wide open fall line made for excellent powder skiing.

Normally, they run groups of 18 guests and three guides plus staff here. IMO, that would be tight quarters. We had a group of twelve guests two guides + lodge staff and the accommodations were nice. The lodge has a similar layout to Icefall lodge and also has a wood fired sauna with two bucket showers. It’s a nice sauna. Classic out houses with views to the south.

Dining room and hangout area.

The terrain is big and there is quite a bit of glaciated alpine terrain to explore. If there was a touchy PWL or a large avalanche cycle, it would be a challenging place to ski for the week as there is very little accessible high hazard skiing. However if you’re looking for big terrain out the front door, this place has got it.

The only downfall to Snowfall IMO, is the group size or the overall cost if you want to go as a smaller group.
