Talk about extremes. A few days ago we went to Emerald Lake in Yoho National park with some friends for a nice walk around the lake and enjoy the fall. Gorgeous day.
A couple days later we got slammed with one of the larger snowfalls we have experienced this time of year in the 20 years we have been here.
We got about 30 cms of snow overnight and now it looks definitely like winter.
Already there are some who are cross country skiing at the Nordic centre which is just down the road from Vagabond. This is a little early to say it is winter and I am sure we will have some warmer weather. This morning it was about -8C and it is supposed to stay pretty cool for the next few days and then warm up. I suspect most of the snow around the lodge will disappear but it is a good for the upper part of Kicking Horse Resort as that will set up nicely for the upcoming winter.
Kicking Horse is scheduled to open on December 8 and if the conditions are good it usually opens up a week earlier for a preview weekend.
We have some strong bookings for the winter already and already full on a lot of dates. If you are interested in joining us, phone or email us directly. Video is from yesterday morning October 24th.
Ken and Lori built Vagabond Lodge in 2003 and have been operating it since. It is the centre piece of the amazing Kicking Horse Resort near Golden BC Canada
