Claude Duchesne - business partner with Andre Renner

Back in the winter of 1983 I went skiing in Sunshine Village near Banff. I saw a big mountain to the south. It was magnificent and I felt the need to get closer to it. After a couple of weeks of shopping and research I came back with brand new telemark gear and a big hope of reaching Mount Assiniboine. Unfortunately a big snow storm moved in, the mountain disappeared, and I got lost in a white out.

Restoration & Renovations

Well, the Lodge is our old girl. She has been going strong since 1928, and she was in need of a little love and restoration. She had been slowly sinking all these years and getting more crooked and sloped. Now, just in time for the hundred year anniversary of BC Parks, she has been restored with the help of BC Parks.
