you will want to replicate [your experience at Mount Engadine] all over again, and then bring your friends, your family and your loved ones along for the ride
Big surprise, we are still in love with winter and we have been living in the mountains for the last two months just taking every moment of it in. The snow in the cities is beautiful for a few days and then it just gets muddy and gross. If you want true winter wonderland you have to spend time in the heart of it all. This year we have been making extra effort to ski as much as we possibly can, which is still not nearly as much as I’d like. I am deep into Warren Miller’s memoir and he is giving me the ski bum bug, although in reality I know that is not the lifestyle for me (ie. working just enough to get by to get to the next hill, to catch the next snow fall), romantic but I also love my luxuries.
If you have the chance to get out to the Canadian rockies this winter and are looking for that perfect mountain getaway experience this is the post you’ve been waiting for. I have read and seen pics of Mount Engadine Lodge for a few years now and it has been on my list since the first time I saw it but this was the first year we took the trip to discover what it’s all about. It was the perfect year to do it too since they had just completed their beautiful glamping tents, all of which are fully functional (and yes, HEATED) in the winter! The main lodge is home to a few rooms and there are a couple of private lodges up for grabs but the glamping tents are hands down the way to go. It gives you the best of both worlds and an experience you will never forget. Better yet, one you will want to replicate all over again, and then bring your friends, your family and your loved ones along for the ride. Not only is this an incredible way to experience the outdoors in the winter but it will be the hottest spot come summer time, so better start booking your stay right now!
Don't miss going down into the valley beneath the main lodge in one of the toboggans, it really makes you feel like a kid
For those curious the lodge itself is cut off from the rest of the world with only a satellite internet connection that will give you the bare minimum, SO you will get the digital detox you didn’t even know you needed, and how amazing it feels when all of a sudden you are seeing the world with your own eyes! There are a number of activities to do around the lodge itself, snowshoeing, dog sledding and cross country skiing to name a few of our faves, some of which we still have to experience for ourselves. Don’t miss going down into the valley beneath the main lodge in one of the toboggans, it really makes you feel like a kid. And don’t worry about the meals, everything is provided and included in the price of your stay, breakfast, packed lunch (in the event that you will be out enjoying the great outdoors) and a three course dinner prepared by the in-house chef.
