New Opening Date – Spring 2022

For months now we have been planning to reopen the lodge this autumn. After staying closed for five consecutive seasons we were optimistic that we could come back with a bang as vaccines were rolled out and Covid numbers plummeted.

But as each week has gone by, the situation in Canada has only deteriorated. A mere 2-3% of Canadians have been fully vaccinated and almost all parts of the country are increasing Covid restrictions. BC has gone into something approaching full lockdown.

We recently spoke with one of the province’s senior ministers and she suggested that there is, at present, no talk of re-opening international borders to tourists. Then, earlier this week, BC’s health officer said it was possible that international tourism could resume in the autumn, but winter was more likely.

We know that our guests have to plan many months ahead. And so, with this total lack of certainty, we have decided to postpone our re-opening date to next May. (We have already contacted guests that have booked for this year.)

Please do let us know if you would like to visit next year. We would love to see you. Our calendar is still fairly open for 2022 and we would be happy to book you in to your preferred slot. (We haven’t released dates for 2023 yet. We expect to do that at the end of this year.)

The team will be spending this year training and preparing for what we hope will be an awesome 2022.
