Self-Guided and Self-Catered Cabin Rental
Our three small lodges are perfect for self-guided winter ski groups. The lodges are very easy to operate with propane heat and stove, and solar light, radio, and charger. The lodges are comfortable, but not luxurious- which helps keeps the price down!
This area is rightfully famous with backcountry skiers. For starters, it has one of the most consistent snowfalls in BC. Add incredibly diverse and manageable terrain to the great snowpack, and you have a classic ski destination. Groups can ski around the cabins without big exposure, though there is plenty of larger features for more experienced skiers. All in all, this is a very user-friendly place, and that is why 80% of our winter clientele are return guests.

Transportation Into and Out of Cabins
Snowcat – Trophy Only
Taking the snowcat 14km / 3200′ up the Spahats Valley to the trailhead at the start of the ascent to the Trophy Chalet costs $475 per trip with 8, $500/trip with 9-12 people. The approach to the cabin then involves a climb on skins of some 1700′, and takes between two and four hours.

Helicopter access is available for any cabin, and is the only option for access into the Discovery & Fight Meadow cabins.
The helicopter takes 4 people and gear per flight. Even if you are flying out, you should pack as though you may ski out. Do not pack multiple skis/boots etc. On the flight you can bring your ski gear, backpack, and two boxes of food (standard fruit or liquor box) per person. Weight limit in the chopper is 1100 lb or 275 lbs per person. We advise people to weigh themselves, their ski gear, and their food and mark down the weight. Write the weights on the boxes so it is easier to pack them into the chopper.
Beer and wine – please bring in canned beer and box wine. We do not allow glass bottles to be left in the cabin as they are too bulky and heavy to fly out.
The helicopter is chartered by the hour. Costs are as follows (ALL COSTS ARE FOR ONE WAY):
|Group Size||Per Person||Per Flight|
|Gear Flight- 1 person and gear to Trophy Cabin|
8 (2 Flights)
|$250 with 8 flying||$1200 /Flight|
|12 (3 Flights)||$220 with 12 flying||$880/ Flight|
All prices are subject to tax
It is possible to fly smaller numbers or freight-only, but costs will include ferry time from the Clearwater helipad at the hourly rate. We will confirm total costs at the time of booking.
Please note that it is possible to ski out from all the cabins, but that you must clear this with us before starting the trip, as the route is long and can involve some tricky navigational challenges, particularly in difficult conditions.
