Backcountry Luxury in Kokanee

The new Kokanee Glacier Cabin, on the shores of Kaslo lake in Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park is ideally situated for summertime hiking and scrambling adventures. In the winter, the area is a ski touring paradise, and the Kokanee Glacier Cabin is situated to best take advantage of the endless skiing terrain, and to provide you with an unforgettable experience. Kokanee Glacier Cabin offers an exciting backcountry adventure for the whole family. This is easily our most well equipped hut. In addition to all the dishes for cooking and dining that our guests have come to expect, there is electricity. That means there is a coffee maker and kettle. Guests supply their own basket filters and coffee.

Located north of Nelson, in southeastern British Columbia’s Selkirk Mountains, beautiful Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park is a year-round recreational paradise. Sitting mostly above 1,800 metres in elevation, the park has three glaciers – Kokanee, Caribou, and Woodbury – which feed over 30 lakes and are the headwaters of many creeks.
