Yes we are back open and ready for business at Vagabond Lodge. And Christmas couldn't have been better. We were lacking in good quality snow conditions prior to Christmas plus it was cold.
It was skiable but a lot of the terrain wasn't because of natural hazards such as trees and rocks.
But over Christmas we got dumped on with over 40 cms in a couple days and more on the way. It was the best Christmas present we could get.
Big news from Kicking Horse around Christmas. There now is a town shuttle from Golden numerous times a day plus there is an airport shuttle from Calgary. Click here for the link.
We don't have many rooms at Vagabond Lodge available over the next couple months but if we can fit you in, we will. Phone us at 250 344 2622 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Video was from December 26.
Another season is underway at Vagabond Lodge and Kicking Horse Resort. It hasn't been the start we were hoping for in terms of snow unfortunately.
We had a good dump early but not much since which means staying to the groomed runs which isn't the way I like to ski.
But it is still early and we normally get our big snowfalls after the New Year.
It looks like a busy winter for Vagabond Lodge with a lot of return guests from around the world which is awesome. Some are staying with us for extended periods. We are working closely with CMH which is the big heli-skiing operation and will be flying some of our guests directly out of the resort. And the best part is, if weather conditions are such they cannot heli-ski, they can spend the day on the resort. A lot of the terrain we ski on here, used to be terrain used by Purcell Heliskiing which was bought by CMH a few years ago. . In other words, pretty special.
I have been getting out daily for a run or two and but not attempting too much as I am saving myself for the powder. It looks from the forecast, snow will be joining us around Christmas. The best present ever.
Enjoy the video. Some hi lights to get to ready for your next visit.
