Mt. Assiniboine Lodge is the perfect destination for cross- and back-country skiing. My husband and I spent a weekend here about a month ago - choppered in and out from Canmore - and we could not have had a better stay. The weather was lovely, about -4 to -10 C each day, and the fresh snow was beautiful. Powder skiing at its best.
We hadn't expected that each day would be fully guided, but it was. Claude & Andre and the staff at the lodge were great, tailoring each morning's or afternoon's ski to be exactly as we desired. The food was quite good, and the cabins are exceptionally comfortable. We stayed in the Cautley cabin, which is a little further away from other cabins, but it is the only queen bed on the premises (all others are double or twin).
This is a perfect resort for couples or families who like to ski. We can't wait to return in the summer or early fall to see this pristine, beautiful lodge in another season.
