Nick Nault – Nick grew up with a passion for skiing and all the magazines, videos and other media that surrounded it. After moving to Fernie and taking up mountain biking and a host of other activties Fernie has to offer, Nick quickly grew to love all the other aspects of outdoor recreation. While he started by just casually snapping photos of his adventures with a point-and-shoot, it wasn’t long before his casual hobby became another passion. 
Over the years, Nick spent less and less time at his ‘real job’ and more time behind the lens and getting paid for it. Currently, Nick is a full-time videographer and photographer, specializing primarily in action sports. He has worked at Island Lake since 2012 as a ski photographer where he is able to combine two of his passions into a day of work. Nick has happily called Fernie home since 2002, and he feels fortunate that he has been able to combine so many of his passions into a fulfilling career.

Kyle Hamilton – A born and raised prairie kid, has been living in Fernie for the last 10 years. He got his start as a professional photographer right here at Island Lake Lodge, and has been shooting with us for the last 6 years.  He has had his work published in SBC Skier, Forecast Ski Magazine, SKI Canada, as well as Canadian Geographic, and The Globe and Mail.

I have gone to many cat/heli operations in the past but this is the top notch!

This is my return trip to Island Lake and this time 8 from Japan have joined me. Seclusion, access to variety ski terrains, snowfall, food and the entire experiences are very well balanced, and supported by professionals.
