You don't have to be a Powder Hound to experience the winter wonderland at Island Lake Lodge

Catskiing by the Day

A great way to try cat skiing and experience some deep powder is a day trip up to Island Lake Lodge. The day starts with us picking you up in our parking lot, located 15 minutes from Fernie.  We then do some some safety training before heading up to ski and snowboard some fresh powder. Food and drinks are available in the cat throughout the day.

Dayskiing usually happens in the early and late season. Call the office or join our day-skiing list
