Perfect 3 day/2 night cross country ski trip. We got a ride up to the lodge on the first morning and after a briefing and lunch, we headed out to ski a couple loops in perfect snow conditions. Visibility was poor but left a nice new layer of snow each day!! There was a friendly and helpful live-in staff of 4. The dinners were outstanding, and the breakfasts, packed lunches and evening appetizers were also very good. The sleeping rooms are snug but well designed. The common rooms are large and encourage guests to gather and mingle. We skiing eached day and borrowed snowshoes for short walks in the late afternoon. On the last day, the skies cleared and we had spectacular views of the valley and surrounding mountains as we skied the 13 km out to the parking lot!!
