We loved our weeklong catskiing trip with Gostlin Keefer Lake Lodge! Most folks stay 3-4 nights but we were very happy to be there for a week. All expectations were exceeded. The skiing was fantastic and we skied open terrain as well as tight trees. The guides are fun and professional. Safety is their priority. The cats are very well equipped and the drivers are helpful and friendly. The main lodge and Pinnacles buildings are modern in decor, beautiful and so comfortable. Great chef and kitchen staff. Every meal as well as snacks and apps were delicious with lovely presentation. In fact, the entire staff is above par - so fun to be around and so helpful - extremely service oriented. This was our best ski adventure ever and we will surely return. All you have to bring to the table is a good sense of adventure. Then you just ski, eat and sleep - and hot tub, sauna, hang out at the bar and get a massage. It was perfect! Thanks to all of you!

Keefer did an amazing job. For only being open 2 years, the lodge and skiing experience is on par with the best Heli experiences in Canada. The tree skiing was tight in places, but I would imagine Keefer was plans to glade more whenever they can. The staff connected with the guests in ways I've never experienced. We had a ton of fun on the mountain and after skiing. We stayed in the new Pinnacle rooms. They were just finished and look great. Nice to be away from the rest of the world and just connect with friends while skiing. I liked that the Pinnacle rooms had no WiFi. Sometimes we need to force ourselves to disconnect.

My only suggestion to Keefer would be to improve WiFi in the main Lodge when we do need to connect.

To Jeff, Willy, Juice, Nicky, Ennis, Dave and Jonny: You helped create a lifetime of memories. And sorry the USA beat up so bad on your Womens Hockey team!

Thanks Chris - that's awesome! We'll let the team know you had a great trip - they'll be stoked to know you really enjoyed your cat skiing trip with us. You're right, the Pinnacles Lodge is nice and quiet and the Main Lodge can be a little more lively and social... We've got to let someone else win in hockey every once in a while just to be good sports!

Fantastic 4 days at Keefer Lake Lodge. Three good friends and I converged there for a guys trip with and that’s definitely the way to go. Not really a family kind of vibe. Also, you need to be a pretty strong skier to have fun in this terrain. (Key word: TREES!)

Overall a very good ski experience. Some of the best skiing of my life, in fact. Yes, there were some dud runs in there. And we skied a *LOT* of trees — not my favorite. But the snow was amazing and there were some moments of true powder bliss. Like, ‘I can’t stop giggling because this is so fun’ kind of runs.

As great as the skiing is, I really thought the highlight was the staff. The guiding was truly top notch, which I expected. What I didn’t expect was the fun, authentic, extremely warm and personal experience that the whole staff created, both on the mountain and back at the lodge. It kind of felt like a cross between a college ski club and a 5-star resort. They were professional and took great care of us, but they also dove right in and partied with us like we’d been friends for years. Special shots out to a few of the folks who made a huge mark on our trip: Nicky, Nicole, Willy, Juice, Ennis, and Dave. You guys ROCK. Thanks so much for the amazing experience! Can’t wait to do it again.

Thanks Dave! Our whole team love what they do and we love making sure our awesome guests have the best experience they've ever had cat skiing. It's a 5-star luxury lodge that still feels relaxed - like you're just at a friend's house hanging out and having a good time. So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay!

Keefer Lake Lodge is a true gem. The brand new, gorgeous lodge makes for the most luxuriously comfy home. The skiing is amazing with great guides and killer cats to get you there. The entire staff is friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and dedicated to making sure all guests have a great time. Top it off with killer food and a great bar and it is a dream ski trip! A must go!
