Arrival / Departure

We recommend coming to the area at least a day before your tour begins. Weather can interrupt even the best laid travel plans and we wouldn’t want you to miss your first day of skiing or riding!

Our lodge is accessible only by snowcat. All guests meet at our office in Meadow Creek at 4pm on arrival days. From there you will be shuttled to the lodge in 2 groups of 12 at approx. 4:30 and 5pm along with your luggage.

On the morning of your departure, the first snowcat leaves the lodge at 7am, followed closely by the 2nd. Do not expect to be on the road to your next destination until 8:30am. When booking your flights, please allow for the timing on our end. Due to our remote location and the logistics involved, transportation outside our regular schedule may not be possible and will be subject to a surcharge.
