Sorcerer Lodge is located near the northern boundary of Glacier National Park, Canada (70 km NW of Golden, BC, 25 km N of Rogers Pass - Map reference 82N5, UTM Grid reference 513997). Elevation is 2050 meters (6750 feet), just below tree-line, and near Mt. Iconoclast at the headwaters of Ventego Creek in the Selkirk Mountains.
Backcountry skiers meet in Golden BC the day prior to their flight into the lodge. Golden is at the junction of the Trans Canada Highway and Highway 95, near the border between BC and Alberta. Calgary International is the closest airport, about a 3 hour drive from Golden. The Greyhound bus leaves Golden and Calgary 4 times daily. If there are more than 2 people travelling together, rental cars are often less expensive and more convenient. A shuttle is available between Golden and the Calgary airport but with limited departure times. Check with us for more information.
Sorcerer Lodge is helicopter access only. We stage from Heather Mountain Lodge, on the Trans Canada Highway, 55 km west of Golden, BC.
We recommend that folks planning to go backcountry skiing with us arrive a day ahead of time and do not book airline flights for the day you fly out of the lodge as weather, and road conditions can make timing unpredictable. Road closures are frequent on both Rogers Pass and the Kicking Horse Pass into Golden and some flexibility makes your holiday more relaxed!
