The Lodge is historically important for its connection to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. After completing the rail line that linked British Columbia to eastern Canada in 1885, the company actively promoted scenic tourism to Western Canada and developed rustic bungalow camps to provide more affordable accommodation to an expanded audience of tourists.
Built in 1928, Assiniboine Lodge was North America’s first backcountry ski lodge. Today it retains its rustic charm and welcoming spirit. Nestled at the base of iconic Mt. Assiniboine, the Lodge is surrounded by soaring peaks, alpine meadows filled with wildflowers, larch trees and turquoise lakes. Located 26 kilometers from the nearest road, it is a place of incredible peace…a place where we disconnect from the busy world and reconnect with nature, family and friends.
