Thank you Jeff! We felt very lucky to have such a great crew as our first guests. It was heartwarming to see families enjoying the wilderness and simple pleasures of skiing and... hauling water! A big thank you must go to Barb, Sepp and Jen Olsen. Couldn't have asked for more of a rock star team! We look forward to seeing you in the mountains soon!

Beautiful lodge, supreme views. Only back country hut I’ve ever been to with nice sheets! All the details. Nice larch glades to ski through and the best tobogganing right near the lodge for kids. Even on the darkest days of the year, the lodge is nice and bright.
