Our stay at PML was nothing short of spectacular. This was our second stay, and it was equally as amazing as our first. The food was great. The conditions were amazing. The company was superb. From start to finish we loved every second of the stay. While internet was offered, my wife and I really enjoyed disconnecting, and would highly recommend that other people do the same. Extended time away from internet is so rare these days, and in this screen obsessed day and age, it was really nice to sever the tech umbilical chord and just exist in the splendor that is PML and it’s surrounding space. So many thanks to our amazing guides and the wonderful staff at PML, it is obvious that they all care so much, and work so exceptionally hard to create an amazing experience.
Fantastic experience overall. Well organized, has beautiful accommodations, amazing food and snacks, and something to do for everyone. The experience was completely tailored to your needs. The Crew is friendly and skilled professionals. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting a Great Canadian Get-a-way in a beautiful setting.
18 of us stayed at Purcell and ski toured the range. 4 days of excellent cuisine by Josef and David, and fantastic guiding from Brent, Sam, Todd, Trevor and Jason. The lodge is super clean, and super roomy for all of us. The terrain offered many options to stay safe given the high avalanche risk this year. The Sauna was a perfect way to end each ski day. This is my second time here (last time was summer) and I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to explore nature and be outdoors. I can't say enough about Josef's cooking, it is well beyond what you would expect for being in the remote wilderness. Jackie helps make everything go super smooth during the booking process. Kudos to all. Beautiful rustic charm backcountry lodge.
Just returned from a corporate retreat at Purcell. What a treat! Great location and facility with a top notch team. Tim, David, Joseph, Chloe and Travis took such great care to ensure all the guests came away with an experience of a lifetime. Special shout out to the effort Tim and Travis put into making sure guests of varying expertise/ability levels could enjoy touring. They were exceptionally knowledgeable, patient and lots of fun! The food was also AMAZING. An excellent way to bring professionals together to strengthen relationships.
This is a beautiful lodge in a spectacular location, with comfortable, well-equipped rooms. The food was delicious and the snow conditions were very good. Our terrain choices were a bit limited by the avalanche conditions, but the mellower tree skiing was still fun. We had some minor problems with the hot water supply. Our only other comment was that the menu was too heavy on red meat and meat in general. We would have preferred more vegetables and less meat. The appetizer soups after skiing were one of the highlights of the menu.
The lodge was comfortable, cozy and clean. We had everything we needed/wanted - comfortable beds/pillows, hot water, good food, games, great company, and very accommodating staff. Our 84 year-old mother was with us, and while she didn’t ski with us she was made to feel very comfortable hanging out in the lodge during the day - the staff were very friendly with her, and she had a great time! The guides worked very well with each other to provide us with safe, flexible and enjoyable ski tours - very professional, caring and fun!
I highly recommend PML. They were organized & worked well as a team! Tim, the lead guide was exceptional & took the time to explain the day's route and hazards in a manner that put his clients at ease. We knew we were in good hands despite the avalanche risks this year, as safety was prioritized. The guides also communicated well via satellite radio. Teamwork was evident again in the evenings when all the staff, guides included, served & cleaned up after dinner. The food by Chef Andre, was homemade & plentiful. He was also able to accommodate guest's dietary needs. The lodge itself was very comfortable, and it was wonderful to have a sauna and a hot shower at the end of a long day of touring and skiing.
We loved it. The lodge is amazing, the terrain the food the staff, it really was fantastic. We have done cat skiing in the past and for comparison this was equally good. We had an awesome time. We definitely recommend Purcell mountain lodge.
Recently got back from a very busy week at Purcell Mountain Lodge (PML). Just shy of 20 of us were flown in to this oasis in the snow late January. Never been there before, so I had no idea what to expect. Upon arrival the staff were very welcoming and spent quality time explaining to us the importance of safety and snow conditions. Our guides were very professional (Trevor, Todd, Jay and Brent) making sure we had the right gear and fundamental training in the case of a slide. We hit the ground running and skied some stuff I never expected (I have skied all over the world). The terrain was mostly untouched and the views were incredible...but they did come with a price. There was quite a bit of activity needed to get to these spots. Some days we would climb for almost 2 hours to get the perfect run down. It was very much well worth it. The lodge itself was just what we needed. The rooms and common areas were basic but purposeful. The showers and bathrooms were more than adequate. They ask that you bring a sleeping bag as laudry service is kept at a minimum. Some people were very warm when they slept, and some were cooler, depending on the location of your bedroom in the lodge/chalet. Bring a bathing suit for the wood stove sauna, as you will spend some time there. The food. Man the food was good. Chef made something interesting for breakfast, apres ski and dinner. I never thought pork belly could taste that good. Packed lunches for your busy day with lots of much needed snacks. How about a Korean Bipimbap for breakfast? Yes, it works....well. Here are some very useful tips that I wish I had known more about before I started packing... 1. Make sure the head-office at PML knows your skiing ability and fitness. We were all strong skiers, and were treated as such. I would hate for someone to feel left out because they were too strong, or weaker. 2. Make sure you have good gear. You do not want to have any issues when you are climbing up or going down, because it is a long way back to the lodge (and to Golden) if you need anything. 3. Lighter is better. All you can think about when your are skinning up some hills is how much your back-pack weighs. It contains the obligatory shovel, avalanche probe and lunch...but give some extra thought on your jackets, gloves, helmets and water bottle. They add up. 4. I did not bring great slippers. The best ones I saw were the puffy, down filled ones. Even the fuzzy ones from Costco would be great. 5. Don't forget a bathing suit and towel. As mentioned earlier, the Sauna is where you will spend some quality time. The views, the food, the skiing and the staff. Everything just right.…
First multi touring trip. 15k of travel and 1500meter plus f vertical with great guides, great food. Chef Joseph, Lodge manager David and guides Brent, Sam, Jason, two turn Todd and I know I’m forgetting others. Trip of a lifetime. I will be back!!
