It also boasts giant wood beams, a bar, lounge, and games room, and plenty of open spaces. The Pinnacles Lodge has 16 guest rooms with beautiful views overlooking the lake and mountains.

Enjoy apres and beverages at the Keefer bar. We have something for everyone. From fresh local microbrew beers to your standard spirits and an extensive wine collection. Have a favourite cocktail? Put our bar tender's creativity and skill to the test!


Relax in Our Scandinavian Inspired Sauna

Relax your muscles and sweat out the toxins in our naturally woodfired mountain sauna. We preheat this sauna daily for your enjoyment. There is nothing like a good sweat to prep those muscles for the active day ahead!

Soak in the Hot Tub

Relax and visit with fellow guests in our large outdoor hot tub. Enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine with our bar service and retell the stories of dirt and glory from the day!
