A nice and forest hide-away to stay and relax with the family and the dogs. Great terrain to ski and to explore year round. A little off the beaten path, the area is ideal for those who want to be the artisan of their own adventure.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Guy and Chris are outdoor enthusiasts who love to ski, bike, hike, run, climb, explore and just enjoy nature. They also happen to be triathletes and marathoners.

Why the Owner Chose Central Kootenay G, BC, Canada:
Guy and Chris, originally from Quebec, moved to the Kootenays over ten years ago to enjoy the finest outdoor experience there is. They built the Kootenay Huts in the last year to share their love of the area and offer the opportunity to soak in the Kootenay mountain culture in a relaxed and peaceful setting. Their extensive outdoor experience guided the design of the chalet.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Get a complete mountain experience! Spend the nights of your daily adventures in the easily accessible but yet secluded nature spot. Cook for yourself, feel the wildlife around you, enjoy the organic feel of the chalet. Feed a log to the woodstove and keep your life simple.
