If you’re searching for the ultimate remote experience, Paint Box Lodge has a sister backcountry hotel - Talus Lodge - hidden within Ktunaxa �"amak�"is, the homeland of the Ktunaxa people, right on the Continental Great Divide, located at 2300 meters of elevation. In fact, it’s so off the beaten path, that it’s currently only accessible by helicopter (though they are working on hiking and ski access), which is included in your stay. Rates also include guided backcountry hikes of the Kootenay mountain area during the summer and ski excursions in the winter.
The whole lodge is a no-wifi zone, perfect for an authentic off-the-grid experience.
Owners, Thomas and Sara, are former Olympic skiers who ”strive to create a business system that leads in environmental stewardship, grows community and nurtures mountain souls”.
