Travel less. Ski more.

Relax with a fireside drink sooner.

Keefer Lake Lodge is the closest catskiing location to an international airport in Canada. The Lodge is accessible by car in Winter and Summer. You can drive right up to the front door. You should have a good all-wheel drive or 4×4 vehicle equipped with winter tires. For anyone unfamiliar with driving mountain roads, or those who prefer to relax after the last run of an epic tour we highly recommend using our simple and convenient shuttle service to get you to our lodge.

The Keefer Lake Lodge Shuttle

NEW for the 2019-2020 Season!

This year the shuttle service is included in your tour! We want to take the stress out of travel and get you thinking about your powder adventure sooner! Once you land at the Kelowna International Airport you will be loaded up in a plush shuttle and taken right to the front door of our lodge.

Our shuttles have 2 departure times from 2 locations in Kelowna. You can choose a pickup location from the Kelowna Airport at 1:00 or 2:00pm (please note this is the shuttle departure time, so ensure you arrive early to be ready)! The second location for pick up is from the Four Points Hotel – located directly across from the airport. The shuttle departs the Four Points at 12:45 or 1:45.

If you are enjoying a local hill before your stay with us, please select the OTHER PICKUP LOCATION option on the booking link and enter in your details. Kevin will reach out to you to confirm meting location and time.

On your final day, the shuttle will depart the lodge and return you to Kelowna around 7-8:00pm.

If you wish to maintain the feeling of pure bliss for as long as possible on your final day, we encourage you to stay at the Four Points. If you are trying to fly out the night that you depart the lodge, we ask you to select a flight time later than 9:00pm.

**Please note that the shuttle has to stick to the departure times above. If these do not work for you, please keep reading for your other options.
