10 BC Chalets to Stay at This Winter

The only thing better than curling up in a cozy chalet for some après-ski relaxation is getting a deal at the same time.

Signing up for a BCAA Membership lets you in on savings at more than 100,000 partner locations worldwide — and British Columbia’s ample lineup of ski resorts is no exception. A BCAA Membership includes Roadside Assistances which might come in handy when you’re navigating your way to one of the many spectacular winter destinations the province has to offer.

Here are just 10 of the BC resort chalets you won’t want to miss out on this season.

  1. Lizard Creek Lodge

This roomy lodge is nestled in the heart of Fernie Alpine Resort. There’s a gentle run located just outside the hotel doors, which means you can slide into a mountain-facing outdoor hot tub minutes after pulling off your skis. And don’t forget to treat your tired feet to the lodge’s spa, which is fully outfitted by the Rocky Mountain Soap Company.

  1. Alpine Lodge

Alpine Lodge also offers ski-in, ski-out closeness to Fernie Alpine Resort. As the largest lodge on the premises, it’s a top pick for big groups. Plus, all of the rooms have scenic views of either the ski hill or the forest and trail network.

  1. The Couloir at Lush Mountain

With sturdy timber frames and floor-to-ceiling windows, the Couloir feels like the perfect cozy cabin in the woods. This private home is one of the closest to the base of Kicking Horse, and sleeps five to nine people — so bring your friends! The hot tub and games room will keep the fun going long after you take off your skis.

  1. Eagle’s Eye Suite

Have you ever wanted to feel like the king (or queen) of your own mountain? Kicking Horse’s Eagle’s Eye Suite offers — quite literally — the pinnacle of chalet luxury. After the diners at the nearby restaurant ride the gondola down at the end of the night, you’ll have the entire mountain to yourself; and when you wake up, you’ll be the first to hit the powder on the freshly groomed runs.

  1. Mountain Spirit Resort

Glide right up to Mountain Spirit’s heated ski lockers after a long day hitting the slopes at Kimberly Alpine Resort, and rest easy knowing your skis are safe while you relax in front of the fireplace or soak in the hot tub.

  1. Timberstone Lodge

Timberstone Condos offer everything you need to cook up a post-ski feast, including granite counter-tops and stainless-steel appliances. Plus, you can enjoy an eye-catching view of the Purcell Rocky Mountain Range as you chow down. The chef of your group will thank you.

  1. Sun Peaks Grand Hotel

With an exercise room, a heated outdoor pool, and a sauna, this hotel is well-equipped to keep you busy before and after you get off the hill. You won’t want to miss out on an on-site massage to make sure your muscles can take on another day. Plus, a BCAA Membership could save you 20% on your visit.

  1. Kodiak Timber Lodge

The Kodiak gives you exclusive access to Sun Peaks. Since the lodge backs onto the Connector run and is accessible from all major lifts, you can easily ski home for lunch — or head straight to bed.

  1. ThistleDown House

Close to Cypress Mountain, this bed and breakfast promises a home-away-from-home vibe with a luxurious upgrade. With its down and silk-filled duvets to its assortment of home-cooked meals, you’ll never want to leave.

  1. Crystal’s View Bed and Breakfast

This BnB’s rooms are so cozy you might even forget you’re in the heart of North Vancouver. Take advantage of the location by checking out Lynn Canyon, the Capilano Suspension Bridge, or Stanley Park when you’re not on the hill.
