Being a ‘Woodie’ means your weekend includes pine taring, tune-ups and waxing tips, trail side chats, book readings, bedtime stories and tall tales.

Being an Assiniboine Lodge guest means your weekend includes daily ACMG guided ski tours, hearty and delicious lodge meals, trail lunches and tea goodies, all required safety gear and two nights accommodation.

Put this all together and you’ll have a weekend packed with all the FUN you
