It's been 20 yrs since our last visit to Purcell Mountain Lodge. We wonder why we waited so long! This is a first class operation on top of Bald Mountain south east of Rogers Pass. Helicopter access only means you are in the heart of the wilderness right outside the door. This is no rustic cabin in the mountains. Full... More

Ever since my son was six years old I've been dreaming of the day when he was old and strong enough to go backcountry skiing with his old man. This past week, for his eighteenth birthday, we spent 6 days at Purcell Mountain Lodge. Needless to say expectations were high. The scenery, staff, powder and experience exceeded our wildest expectations.... More

If you've done a lot of travelling in the back-country you'll know that electricity, hot showers and a professional chef are rare. Purcell lodge has all of these and more. The only way in is by helicopter from Golden or an extremely long hike. You arrive at Nirvana - nestled on an alpine meadow on the edge of Glacier National... More
