Although Vagabond Lodge shut for the winter a week ago, the resort was open until April 16th. We had a good chance to play for the final week and we did just that.
Along with friends Ken and Patrick we managed to go for one more adventure off the resort to see what we could see.
The conditions on the resort was late not ideal, with winterish at the top, then some hard packed and icy about half way down and then it was softening up at the bottom. A real mixed bag and tough on the knees.
Our final adventure on the second final day April 15th was really good until about 2/3 of the way down the mountain. As from the video we had untracked powder.
But nearing the bottom, it was not much fun with crust, you could break through with jump turns and then crust you could not break through. It made turning a real challenge. But we made it in one piece.
Vagabond Lodge will reopen for the summer on June 15 until about September 17th.
You can book your stay direct from our website or email info@vagabondlodge.
Ken along with his wife Lori are the owners and operators of Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
