Relax in a Home Away From Home
The owners of White Grizzly Lodge decided to build on the breathtaking peaks of the central Selkirk Mountains of BC after years of seeking out the best POW. With the help of family and friends, Carole and Brad created this intimate 3,200 square foot log retreat. Accommodating up to 12 guests in five comfortable ensuite bedrooms, the lodge is the ideal rural getaway. White Grizzly’s small group policy ensures you get personalised attention and friendly service from our professional team. After a long day on the slopes, White Grizzly Lodge is the perfect retreat – nestled in a secluded forest of larch, cedar and hemlock, and accessible by vehicle year-round, the lodge provides all the luxury you could ever desire with a hot tub, a massage room, a dry room fully equipped with dry racks and boot-dryers, and a central common area with plush reclining chairs, stretching mats, sound system, foosball table and a large stone fireplace.
Our fresh, gourmet meals recharge and revive after a long day on the slopes, and we offer free WiFi access at the Lodge so you can upload those photos of you shredding the snow!
