Golden Alpine Holidays Lodges
4 Lodges to Stay In and an Entire Mountain Range to Play In!!
Golden Alpine Holidays has been in the business for over 25 years. Back in 1986 GAH began operating Canada's first helicopter accessed backcountry skiing and hiking operation. Last season, they provided more than 100 trips per year into the incomparable Esplanade Range in the fabled Northern Selkirks of British Columbia. This made GAH the busiest backcountry operator in Canada.
Summer hiking is the fastest growing segment of their operation where groups of 12 can travel throughout the range visiting one or all four lodges. Surrounded by 2 National Parks and all the big peaks of Canada their glacier free terrain offers over 125 kilometers of well marked world class alpine hiking trails
