Mistaya Lodge is cradled high in the magnificent Canadian Rockies. Located in the upper basin of Wildcat Creek next to the Wapta Icefield region.
In winter, deep snow and the warm coziness of Mistaya Lodge combine to make a Mecca for backcountry explorers, from mid-December until early May. Located on the west slopes of the Canadian Rockies, the frequent up slope snowfalls of dry powder provides us with excellent telemark or alpine ski touring as well as snowshoeing. Our close proximity to extensive glaciated terrain as well as glades and open tree skiing, provides plenty of variety for novice to expert backcountry skiers and snowshoers.
In the summer whether a casual hiker; an amateur naturalist, an avid photographer or a dedicated mountaineer, the alpine meadows, pristine lakes, cascading glaciers and rugged peaks will offer you many days of rewarding exploration.
An unforgettably scenic 18 minute flight by helicopter from Golden, British Columbia will introduce you to this magically beautiful basin in the Rockies.
Their hearty backcountry gourmet meals and comfortable accommodation will combine to give you a holiday long remembered.More info: Official Hut Website
