Island Lake Catskiing provides you with 3 lodging options, from cozy standard rooms to more spacious deluxe rooms with soaker tubs and showers. There are no TV’s or phones in the rooms – we want you to relax and enjoy the surroundings. However, all 4 lodges have wireless internet access, so feel free to bring your laptop. There is also an on site cell phone signal booster if there is someone you need to stay in touch with while you are here.
The Tamarack Lodge – 8 rooms – The Tamarack Ski Lodge, built in 2005, boasts amazing views of the surrounding mountains. The 8 deluxe guest rooms have spacious ensuite bathrooms with a soaker tub, shower and a combination of Twin and Queen beds. The lodge also includes our main dining room, a state of the art kitchen and our wellness spa facility with an outdoor hot tub offering great views of the Lizard Range.
The Cedar Lodge – 8 rooms – The Cedar lodge features 8 deluxe guest rooms furnished with either one King or two Queen beds. Each room hosts a patio and a spacious ensuite bathroom with a soaker tub and shower. The lodge features a living room with fireplace, a workout gym where we offer morning stretch classes and an outdoor covered hot tub to soak your tired muscles after a vigorous day outdoors.
Red Eagle Lodge – 10 rooms – The Red Eagle Lodge, built in 1996, is a standard but cozy log cabin with two common areas, great for friends sharing a tour. The 10 comfortable guest rooms feature ensuite bathrooms with showers and new beds. The lodge has an outdoor hot tub on the large front deck with great views of the surrounding mountains.
The Bear Lodge – The Bear Lodge is where it all started back in 1988. If these walls could talk, they would tell some amazing stories… Legends like Craig Kelly and Scot Schmidt sitting around the fire, talking about their “deep powder” day on the mountain. Today, as the hub of Island Lake Catskiing, The Bear Lodge is where you will experience après ski. Each day after skiing you will enjoy hearty homemade soup and fresh baked breads with your favourite beverage from our huge selection of beer and cocktails. After dinner in the Tamarack, return to the Bear Lodge for a game of pool or darts – you never know, you might just bump into a legend…
Dear guests – Due to the specifics of British Columbia Liquor Laws, any alcohol on the premises must be purchased under our liquor license. As a result, any alcohol purchased outside of the lodge may not be brought onto the property. However, we have an extensive and eclectic wine library and serve a full selection of beers and spirits. If you have any special requests before your arrival, we will do all we can to accommodate you.
From Our Customers
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.
