Island Lake Lodge and catskiing is a back country resort located on 7,000 acres of beautiful mountainous terrain a few powder bowls north of Snowed Inn in Fernie BC. Island Lake Lodge access is just beyond the Mount Fernie Provincial Park.
During the winter cat-skiing operation, the Island Lake Lodge is used primarily by guests of the lodge, who access the lodge by snowcat. Members of the public use the cross-country trail system in the Cedar Valley. Currently, the cat-skiing operates with three snowcats that can handle a maximum of thirty six guests. Additionally, some back-country touring groups access the high alpine terrain by traversing over from Fernie Alpine Resort. In summer, the access road is open to the lodge. Popular summer activities include: dining at the lodge, the spa facilities and guided hiking.
