About Mustang Powder Lodge

We are in the Monashees - which are famous for steep tree skiing in deep light powder - however, we also have plenty of alpine skiing and one glacier. There is lots of moderate terrain as well as steep, challenging runs. If the visibility is good we are up in the alpine; if it is snowing we are in the glades and trees. Our forests are mostly old growth - so the spacing between the trees is good. Our ldoge is located at 5750 ft. so the first run of the day is usually only a 5 or 10 minute cat ride.

We are a 'skiers' operation. Our skiing program caters to keen, fit skiers who want to get lots of vertical and experience interesting and challenging terrain whenever stability allows. Guests eat their lunch/snacks during the snowcat ascents - so we don't waste time stopping to eat. Our philosophy is to give our guests as much skiing/boarding as they want each day. We put our clocks on daylight savings time in order to optimize the daylight and do approx. 8 hours of skiing each day. This means we typically ski 15-20,000 vertical per day. Guests that are less ambitious or not very fit are encouraged to sit out some runs, so that they don't get too worn out.

Our staff is friendly and professional - and the atmosphere in the lodge is relaxed. (People rarely dress up for dinner.)

Guide Certifications & Experience

All of our lead guides have ACMG Mountain guide certification. We have assembled an incredible team of lead guides who are the envy of the industry! Many of our lead guides have 15-30 years experience cat/heli skiing, mountaineering etc. Our tailguides are all either ACMG assistant guides or CSGA level 1 ski guides.

Equipment Used

We operate two groups of 12 skiers/boarders in our Pisten Bully 300 and 600 snowcats. These are very powerful, efficient and smooth snowcats - increasing the amount of skiing we can offer our guests and their comfort in the passenger cab.

Guests are transported from our trailhead by bus for 45 minutes, and then by snowcat for 1-1.5 hours up to the lodge.

Ski Areas Nearby

Silver Star, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, & Sun Peaks are all close by. Lake Louise, Kicking Horse or Sunshine can all be skiied en route from Calgary.

Booking Policy

We require 25% payment upon booking, and the balance is due by November 15 prior to the ski season. Most of our high season sells out a year in advance, however there are still some spots left for groups in the 2011/12 season in December and March.

Training & Instruction

Prior to skiing/boarding on the first day of your holiday, guests have a safety briefing and transceiver practice.

Packages & Pricing

We have a very comfortable, luxurious lodge located at 5750 ft. Bedrooms are either singles or doubles - all with private bathrooms. The living area has spectacular timberframe post and beam construction and an unbelievable view of mountains peaks and glaciers. There is a full time massage therapist, a hot tub, and a pool table. All meals are prepared by our incredible chefs and dinners are four course gourmet, with a fine selection of BC wines available from the bar.
