Purcell Mountain Lodge
Canada: British Columbia
Untouched powder and terrain to rival the best ski areas in North America, the Purcell Mountain Lodge delivers absolute luxury for families and couples alike.
Purcell Mountain Lodge sits atop one of the largest alpine meadows in British Columbia, surrounded by some of the finest downhill ski terrain imaginable. All blanketed with deep Purcell powder snow.
This means you can choose almost any type of terrain you want: rolling meadows, intermediate alpine slopes, glades, 2000’ alpine descents, tight chutes or wide open bowls.
At Purcell Mountain Lodge, we are blessed with some of the best skiing conditions in the world. Large snowstorms from the Pacific Ocean pass across our slopes on a regular basis, providing upwards of 10 meters (33 feet) of light, dry snow every year. And thanks to the influence of the dry continental climate to the east of us, we also receive an unusually large amount of sunshine.The result? Perfect powder skiing and sunny days!
Because Purcell Lodge lies close to the boundary of two different weather patterns you need to be prepared for a variety of winter temperatures. Expect conditions to range from heavy snow to blue sky days. Temperatures can vary from -20 in January to +8 on a warm March day. Unlike the coast though we rarely experience any rain in winter, so you do not need to bring waterproof shells.
