Before heading out on your final day of skiing, please ensure you have all your belongings packed up and left near the door of your room, so housekeeping can store your luggage and prepare for arriving guests.
Your stay at Heather Mountain Lodge begins the evening before your first ski day. We’ll be ready to check you in at 6 PM.
Arrival & Check-in
If you arrive early, great! Welcome! Enjoy a drink in our lounge and take in our epic views while we finish preparing your room. After you settle in, you’re invited to join us in the lodge for 7:00 PM introductions and a gourmet three-course dinner. After dinner, our guides will escort you to the Ski Room for equipment set-up and some other administration, so please bring your boots. Once you’re all set for skiing, the rest of the evening is yours to enjoy. May we suggest a nightcap at the Woolly Toque—our charming backcountry bar?
