The air is warming in the heart of the Monashee Mountains and with summer just around the corner, Eagle Pass Lodge is looking forward to a season filled with weddings, work retreats and mountain adventures as they give their guests a world-class experience at this contemporary, private getaway spot.
Having grown to attract more and more visitors every year in the last decade since the opening of Revelstoke Mountain Resort, the city and surrounding area is now quickly becoming just as much of a destination in the summer months as it is for powder hunters in the winter. Revelstoke now attracts thrill seekers looking for unique mountain biking, hiking, trail running, and rock climbing experiences, to name a few.
While the lodge’s main attraction in the winter is their heli-skiing services, Eagle Pass Lodge is tapping into the area’s increase in warmer weather tourism by offering visitors a fully customizable stay. With 13 bedrooms that can accommodate up to 26 guests, the lodge is available for private rental only, assuring privacy and service that goes above and beyond.
Surrounded by the stunning scenery of lush green rainforests and the snow-capped mountain peaks of the Columbia range, nature truly is at the doorstep of Eagle Pass Lodge. With elegant, rustic style interior design, panoramic windows, 18-foot vaulted ceilings, and picture-perfect views of Mountain Begbie, the lodge boasts 13 bedrooms, a private massage room, on-site helicopter landing pad, hot tub and more.
The lodge can be transformed to accommodate nearly any getaway experience imaginable with the help of local business partners. Acting as a concierge, Eagle Pass Lodge is the perfect home base for all adventure seeking guests. With mountain biking tours and rentals, paragliding, helicopter sightseeing, hot springs tours, brewery tours, white water rafting, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, yoga retreats and much more just outside its doorstep, Eagle Pass Lodge can fully customize an action-packed getaway.
Directly accessible and just steps away from the front doors lie the Mt. Macpherson trails, around 55 kilometres of classic Revelstoke singletrack appealing to all difficulty levels. The trails are operated and maintained by the Revelstoke Cycling Association and Recreation Sites and Trails BC.
By partnering with Skookum Cycle and Ski for biking rentals and last minute equipment upgrades and Wandering Wheels for mountain bike guiding services, downhill shuttle needs, or heli-biking laps, Eagle Pass Lodge is perfectly situated for an exciting alpine mountain biking experience.
Eagle Pass Lodge has also recently partnered with Heather Johnston of The Open Trunk to offer everything needed to host a private mountain wedding and workshops. With the space to host either a small indoor wedding or an outdoor wedding with up to 120 guests, the lodge provides a three-day wedding package that includes accommodation and breakfast for up to 26 guests.
Along with the incredible mountain backdrop and a location halfway between Calgary and Vancouver, Eagle Pass Lodge offers couples both seclusion and convenience for their special day with the exclusivity of only one wedding per weekend and over 8,000 square feet of manicured outdoor space.
Just a ten-minute drive from the city of Revelstoke, the lodge is secluded but still accessible, serving as a perfect blank canvas for corporate groups looking to take meetings out of traditional spaces and into picturesque mountain scenery, inspiring creativity and renewed enthusiasm in a private think-tank setting. Whether it’s part of a team-building exercise or simply an escape from the city, there’s no shortage of excitement to be easily found from this fully private event rental location.
More than just somewhere to stay, Eagle Pass also offers a unique dining experience in their open concept dining room and lounge. With a focus on health, innovative and flavourful food, their executive chef creates culinary masterpieces using locally sourced and renewable ingredients.
