Skoki Lodge Named a Top Winter Adventure in North America
November 22, 2011 - The Lake Louise Ski Area’s Skoki Lodge is one of the top-16 winter adventure ‘must-dos’ on the entire continent this season, onthesnow.com has concluded.
“Making this list alongside such world-famous attractions as the Northern Lights in Alyeska and the World Ice Festival in Breckenridge is a great accomplishment,” says Lake Louise Ski Area proprietor Charlie Locke. “We are delighted by the honour, which represents Skoki’s unique appeal as North America’s premiere backcountry lodge.”
Skoki Lodge is the birthplace of commercial skiing in Canada. Built in 1931, the perfectly preserved National Historic Site remains an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Out the front door, over 400 kilometres of trails wind throughout one of the most stunning mountain landscapes on the planet. In winter, Skoki is ideal for cross-country skiing, ski touring and snowshoeing, with plenty of that light, champagne powder the area is famous for.
Come for the best of Mother Nature and stay for the warm, welcoming hospitality. The rustic, elegant architecture uses local materials such as logs and stone and evokes the natural environment flawlessly. Cozy rooms or private cabins, with touches like down comforters and exquisitely prepared gourmet meals, lend luxury to the wilderness. Sleeping up to 26, the Lodge is perfect for families, couples and corporate retreats, or for an idyllic solo getaway.
Rich in history, Skoki is a haven for those who want to escape it all, but who love to be looked after. Just 11 kilometres from the Lake Louise Ski Area, the Lodge will open December 23rd for the winter season and is now accepting bookings.
Lake Louise is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and an exquisite jewel in the Banff National Park Canadian Rockies.
