Eagle Pass Heliski has announced its new 9,500-square-foot lodge, located in the Monashee Mountains, will be operational by January 2017.

Positioned eight kilometres from downtown Revelstoke (as the crow flies) the new lodge is located on eight acres and will feature 12 bedrooms, dining room, full bar, massage rooms, gear drying and tuning rooms, an in-ground hot tub with views of Mt Begbie and a private heli-pad.

Scott Newsome, Vice President and Lead Guide at Eat Pass Heliski, says, “This is a very exciting time for Eagle Pass and all of our guests. As the company has continued to evolve over the last six years, the need for a lodge of this magnitude became extremely apparent. The construction of this lodge is another example of our commitment to our guests.”

Eagle Pass operates its heli-ski season from December 1st to April 20th and Scott anticipates the new lodge to be open January 2017 season.
