Albreda Lodge, BC, Canada, is not just a luxury chalet but a real mountain elevator. This European feel chalet is entirely dedicated to the guests of Mike Wiegele’s heli-skiing business, and the best refuge you can find this side of the Rockies. You are 30 miles from the nearest town of Blue River, in the heart of powder country, and you should be ready for some serious skiing.
Guests come here for one thing and one thing only: skiing. You are dropped at the top of the mountain, ski all the way down and just like magic, the helicopter is ready to go to fly you up the mountain to do it again. And at the end of the day, you will find masseuses taking care of your body to put back into shape for the next day. The chef is not bad either, having worked with renowned awarded chefs, and delivers the perfect cuisine for the evening. There are just 17 rooms, which also mean you will be quite at peace.
Albreda Lodge is one of the best hotels in British Columbia and in the world. The architecture is very European, as interior decoration, but we like it for the feel of it and for the experience it delivers. Which is the reason why guests come there, to ski, eat, drink, have fun in a very secluded and private place.
