Hollyburn and Westlake lodges

The trails around Hollyburn and Westlake lodges on Hollyburn Mountain have attracted winter sports enthusiasts for over 70 years. In the early days, this winter paradise offered adventurous visitors willing to climb its steep slopes a variety of activities, including cross-country sking, snow shoeing and for the real risk taker, ski jumping!
