There’s a reason why, of all the places in Canada, royals William and Kate chose Lake Louise Ski Resort’s Skoki Lodge for their one day off during their official visit.
Western Canada’s oldest backcountry lodge has no running water, no electricity, no flush toilets, and no cell phone service. Cross-country skiers and hikers must conquer an 11km trek, including the aptly named Deception Pass, before they can collapse around the fireplace with a cup of gourmet soup. Since its construction in the early 1930’s, Skoki has been an escape for everyone from families to honeymooners. For while the meals are outstanding and the beds soft enough, Skoki is an escape to the mountains of yesteryear, where modern inconveniences are well worth paying for.
Book your stay directly with Skoki Lodge, and The Great Canadian Bucket List will give you a $50 gift certificate from Chapters (after confirmed travel).
