Our friend Jackson Dove had so much fun last year on his trip to Golden Alpine Holidays, that is was just revisited recently (this trip was to the Sunrise lodge – seen in pic from the G.A.H. website). Below is a short writeup from Jackson, along with his sweet short edit, that sums up their trip to this remote lodge located in Esplanade Range of the Selkirks. So remote, G.A.H. gets you out there via heli.
This March we spent a week at Golden Alpine Holidays‘ Sunrise Lodge. The forecast of a sketchy snowpack with several deep persistent weak layers from earlier in the season would keep us to low angle terrain below treeline. The weather also delayed part of our group and supplies from flying into the lodge the first day. Luckily a weather window opened and we got in the next day. Then it started dumping snow and combined with the amazing terrain and pillow zones at Sunrise Lodge made for another all time week of human-powered shredding in the Esplanades. By the end of the week we were beginning to go native, and hoped that the storm would continue and prevent us from ever flying out.
