Not only can you just park your car and forget about it the whole time you’re in vacation but you can literally step outside the lodge and jump right on the chair lift.

The Glacier Mountaineer Lodge

Glacier Mountaineer Lodge Kicking Horse
My wife and I spent two nights at the Glacier Mountaineer Lodge during the summer of 2016 while we experienced a Via Ferrata mountain climbing experience, mountain biking, and the Grizzly bear refuge. The lodge was perfect as it included a full kitchen, in-suite laundry, and a balcony with gorgeous views of the mountain scenery. Our suite also had two flat-screen TV’s with one in the living room and one in the bedroom. The kitchen was perfect because we like to cook as much of our own food as possible. We also hooked up our laptop to the TV via HDMI and watched Netflix during our down time.

When it was time to explore the mountain, we just took the elevator to the first floor and walked out the door and right to the base where the chair lift and gondola is! Plus, there’s a coffee shop if you need a caffeine fix or breakfast. I can’t wait to come back in the winter and stay here while skiing. There’s nothing better than being the first one on the mountain!

We loved it!
