Where is Silver Tip Lodge?Silver Tip Lodge Heli-Skiing is located in a beautiful location on the shores of Quesnel Lake in the Cariboo Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. Silver Tip Lodge is only accessible by air or extended water journey making it extremely remote and affording a truly one-of-a-kind wilderness experience.

The lakefront location gives non-skier guests plenty to do. Guests have access to fishing gear and boats for winter fishing; cross-country ski equipment with set trails through the woods or along the beach; snowshoe equipment for those who like to break trail; or take a leap off the dock for a customary polar bear dip.

Each and every day, the menu is dressed to impress.

Silver Tip Lodge

Silver Tip lodge radiates comfort and ambience amidst a wild and untamed setting. Its special warmth comes from a Finnish Tulikivi soapstone stove that produces a radiant heat that must be felt to be believed. The atmosphere and flavour at Silvertip can be categorized as rustic luxury. The 7,248 sq.ft lodge was originally built in 1967 and has been substantially renovated and updated since that time.

The great room living area features high, western-style vaulted ceilings over a large open living/common area with overstuffed chairs, a billiards table, a quaint western style bar room, and large dining room. 

The decor consists of handmade woodwork, comfortable furniture, hunting trophies from a long gone era and intriguing photos of the local wildlife, mountains, and recreation. Up on the second floor, there are six charming guest rooms, all fully furnished and each with a private ensuite bath. Two additional guest rooms are found on a third level and each one again has a private ensuite bath.

SPA
The Spa Chalet is located next to the lodge and houses a large outdoor hot tub overlooking the lake. There’s also a massage room, steam room, sauna and exercise deck. A full-time massage therapist will untie knotted muscles and free your fascia.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Outdoor hot-tub
  • Massage, steam and sauna
  • Full time massage therapist

DINING EXPERIENCE
Great food and drink are an essential part of the Silver Tip experience. At the end of an epic day, or to power up for the day yet to come, the chefs create culinary experiences to savour. Each and every day, our world-class chef and menu will impress.

Meals are served in the main dining area where a casual atmosphere ensures the intimacy and warmth of a small group of friends, family and associates. The bar offers a wide variety of top-flight beverages and a first-class wine list is always available. The personal service will remind you why you’ve made the journey.
