If you're looking for an amazing ski touring lodge in the middle of the majestic Canadian Rockies look no further. I stayed at Mistaya Lodge in February 2014 and it was hands down one of the most fun ski trips I've ever had. Set in a pristine valley, the lodge was right out of a picture book and offered just...

Mistaya Lodge is first class, the operation is first class, the owners and staff are fantastic. Dave, the live in guide and owner is a perfect host. The terrain is challenging but perfectly skiable, the views are other worldly. We didn’t have any new snow while we were here but with a foot or two it can only be better... More

Mistaya Lodge is an amazing ski touring destination. There is a wide variety of terrain close to the lodge, so skiers of all abilities had fun. Each day we could choose from longer trips with challenging skiing or easy cruising at a moderate pace. This was greatly appreciated by the guests during the 7 day trip, accomodating high and low...

I have been meaning to write this review for far too long. Mistaya Lodge is almost a second home to me, as I come at least once a year and often twice. Unlike most winter guests I don't ski, but the terrain provides excellent snowshoeing. Summer offers trails through the best in mountain scenery, which you and fellow guests have... More

Absolutely wonderful! I’ve skied the backcountry at 5 different lodges in BC. This is the BEST. Trackless powder 6-18" deep, glaciers, incredible tree runs, phenomenal mountain scenery, frozen lakes, delicious food, and really nice owners. There is terrain here for every ability. The lodge is a well-crafted post & beam structure with several outbuildings, one housing the sauna. (So nice... More

Having experienced a number of backcountry huts and lodges in the winter time, this week at Mistaya Lodge was the best ever. The snow was fluffy and deep all week. The weather conspired to keep the snow lovely with light winds, limited sun and temperatures between 5-25 F. David is a wonderful understated owner/guide who clearly loves the place and... More

I've been to many backcountry ski lodges in the area from Golden to Revelstoke, and without doubt this is the best taking into account accomodations and skiable terrain in the immediate vicinity. The lodge is a magnificent place combining sound engineering with beautiful aesthetics. The skiing in the immediate vicinity of the lodge is incredible with terrain suitable for all... More

We've been to lots of Canada ski lodges and Mistaya is by far our favorite. It has wonderful skiing - open glaciers and trees, depending on conditions - and is run by incredibly helpful and friendly people. They are really good at working with multiple levels of skiers; you can go out for a long hard day, others can take... More

I had a great week at Mistaya in the summer of 2010. I'm used to taking a tent and carrying everything on my back so just carrying a day pack and knowing I was coming back to a dry and warm shelter was a nice change of pace. Despite hiking all over creation all day long I think I still... More

I stayed here in August and were very impressed with the upgrades the new owners have made since my last visit several years ago. Indoor toilets in a backcountry lodge is an absolute luxury! Dave and Sandra are great guides, Deb provided super meals and snacks and Cindy runs the office with efficiency and good humour! Of course the hiking... More
