We stayed at this resort in July, 2012. Our family had traveled to this area before and knew that this was the place to stay. We were upgraded to luxury accommodations which were superb. Three bedrooms (2 with 2 doubles, 1 with 1 king) and a common living, dining and kitchen. Each of the bedrooms were spacious with a whirlpool tub and steam shower in each ensuite. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to cook with. Every day, the cabin was well cleaned by the staff.
As the heli skiing season was over, the resort was very quiet, which suited us perfectly. The staff was helpful when needed, but we didn't really need much more anyways. There is not much in the area, so it is best to bring most of your own food to cook with. The weather was not great, but it meant more time spent with family around a real wood fire. Plus, there were many mosquitoes outside anyways.
WIth such a great location and accommodations, we would love to make this trip an annual event. We took a daytrip to Mount Robson and Wells Gray Provincial Parks, both 1-2 hours away.
