Amazing staff, location and food. Fantastic meadow hiking with A1 food and service via the lodge staff and guides. Disappointing administration by an owner without a clew or an ounce of customer service know how. Hard to explain why some people own such an amazing place but treat it like a 7-11.

Flew in by helicopter. Alpine Helicopters are first rate, made for an eye opening introduction to the mountainous terrain. Arrival met by energetic and hospitable staff. Over next three days roamed the neighbouring wild flower hillsides, climbed Mount Copperstain and watched two grizzlies frolic in the meadows. OVERALL WOW FACTOR OFF THE CHART The guides for all of this were... More

Yes, some of the photos might remind you of "The Sound of Music" with Julie Andrews as Maria and the Von Trapp family singers leaping and spinning and bounding over the flowered meadows. The reality is so much more. Some words that describe this place: incredible, gorgeous, panoramic, delicious (food!), wholesome (food!), and PML is accessible by more people than... More

Great staff, great food, great vistas and great skiing. I have never been to a place where the chef serenades the guests with a customized song that includes a summary of that evenings menu. Truly unique. The ultimate luxury backcountry trip.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Purcell Mountain Lodge this March. The snow conditions, terrain and scenery were excellent. The guides (Pate and Dan), the lodge and the dining (Stephan) were over the top! We will be returning. Ron

Approximately half way through an amazing backcountry skiing experience with unusually high standards for hospitality (Barb), gastronomie (Stephane), guiding (Slokan Dan and Pate), we learned of a death in the family. The staff was able to schedule a flight and we were down the mountain on our way in a short time with a gourmet dinner to go in hand.... More

Went on a 4 day ski trip at PML last month. Mother nature was working against us....no new snow for several days, avalanche danger was considerable and we missed our first day of skiing due to "no fly" conditions...and just sat around the heli hanger waiting it out. Luckily, we got to fly in the next morning. The lodge is... More

Purcell is a magical, comfortable, classy backcountry lodge: After a full day of skiing, there was a fabulous sauna to unwind. There's an exceptional drying room for wet gear. The hardwood floors are real, comfy down-filled quilts and pillows, quiet spaces to read a book or view the scenery with or without the telescope. The wood fireplace is surrounded with... More

Our back country ski trip was just wonderful- in pleasant terrain up high where the valley weather doesn't get at you! The Lodge is most comfortable, Chef Stephane was terrific and our guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Mervellieux.

Last weekend we had a tremendous 4 days, (1 extra because we were snowed in) of back country skiing. 16cm of new snow every day. Guides; Peter and Will were amazing.
