Preseason Work Party

Pre-summer greetings from us here at Diana Lake! We are getting ready to do some renovations and repairs on our lodge, seems like when you hit 60 then things start falling apart! Our opening day is July 14, so we will be spending the last part of June and the first 2 weeks of July working away.

Volunteers can come in for all or part of the time, as even a day of work gives us a great boost.

Some things that need to be done:

Floor taken out, bottom logs examined

Logs debarked, chinked, stained inside the lodge

Post holes dug, posts installed

Floor built

Kitchen redone

As you can see, we have a fair amount of work to do, and it would be great to get some volunteers up to give us a hand! Food and bevvies (beer/wine after the heli drop) will be provided, but special personal stuff will need to be brought up by you. We will be sleeping outside in tents while we do the work, as well as cooking all meals outside, so make sure you're prepared! We will also need some help to bring food up.

Please let us know if you are interested/not interested, and also please let any friends/acquaintances who might be interested know about our work party! Contact us for more details if needed!

Summer Is Coming!

Summer is coming and we are getting super excited for this coming sun season here at Diana Lake Lodge & Teahouse!

We will be getting some planned renovations finished up during the first two weeks of July, just in time for our second annual BBQ Bonanza on July 14, 2018. $10/person gets you food and a tent site for the evening. This is a family friendly event, but gets more adult friendly as the night moves along and the kids go to bed. There will be live music and great times in a beautiful setting! Contact us to reserve your spots today.

Our area caters to hiking, scrambling, photography, flora and fauna viewing, and fishing enthusiasts. With beautiful ridge walks, open alpine meadows, never-ending alpine and mountain flower blooms, and stunning views, Diana Lake Lodge is a wonderfully unique experience, with a rustic look and modern amenities.

We offer self-catered and fully-catered dining options, and we are very flexible. Let's make this trip work for you! We hope to see you up there!

Diana Lake Lodge Sponsorships

We were proud to be a sponsor of the Golden Woman's Resource Center's annual soiree, held on Thursday November 9th. Unfortunately we could not attend, but it sounded like a great fun evening! Donated was a silent auction item: a self-catered trip for 4 people for two nights, so we hope to see the lucky recipients of that in July!

We are also proud to be sponsoring the Wildsight Invermere's 4th Wild and Scenic Film Festival, on Saturday, November 25. Up for grabs is a certificate for a couple of free lunches, as well as a silent auction item: a self-catered trip for 2 people for one night. We hope to see you there!

Summer is Here

Summer is here at Diana Lake Lodge! The wildflowers are blooming like mad on the alpine slopes, the trail has been mostly cleared of avalanche debris (aside from everything still under the snow!) and the sun is out and shining. Thanks to all who stopped by these past few weeks to join our opening weekend celebration and partake of our hospitality, we hope to see you all again soon. Apologies to all those that we missed!

Lots of work has been done these past few weeks, with the firepit moved and rebuilt, and a new composting outhouse and been built and christened.

The caretaker is up here from Wednesdays to Sundays, and also long weekend Mondays, so please come by and say hi if you are in the area.

We hope to see you up here!

First hike in of the summer 2017 season

We had a beautiful sunny day this June 5th when we went in to check out the road, trail and cabin up here at Diana Lake Lodge. The glacier lilies are out everywhere down low, and just starting as you get a little higher up the trail. Still about 5-6 feet of snow up around the cabin, but the melt has slowly begun.

There has been a large avalanche cycle this year, which has covered the trail in debris approximately 2.5 km up the trail. We will be cleaning this up hopefully in late June/early July along with a BCRecreation crew. Please take care in this area if you are headed up in the early season.

Diana Lake Lodge's summer season will be beginning this Canada Day weekend, with a bbq/party on Saturday July 1st. Tickets are $10 per person for a tent site, bbq, and some live music up in the alpine. Contact us through the website or give us a call to reserve your spots today!

Winter test completed!

This February 18-22 we flew into the lodge to make sure everything was okay and to do a little bit of ski exploring. We found 8 feet of snow in front of the lodge, and fairly large amount of terrain we can utilize for our winter season activities. Some pictures are uploaded on the website, but for a complete set, please visit our Facebook page!

Winter Wonderland

The snow is here! If you are planning on coming up this weekend, don't forget to bring your gaitors. 4 inches and counting in front of the lodge at this point. The start of a great ski season! The lodge is nice and cozy with the heater going, and there's a cheesecake in the oven. Winter heaven!

Last Regular Teahouse Weekend

The last weekend of regular teahouse hours is creeping up on us. The chef will be in residence from Friday to Monday, so come on up, enjoy some of our amazing food and hospitality, and check out the area!

We are still taking accommodation reservations for a few more weeks, and our chef can make special trips into the teahouse if a large enough group (4 or more) would like to have lunch. Contact us beforehand to let us know you're coming up!

Fall is Here

It's the second last weekend of our regular teahouse hours here at Diana Lake. We had a busy day today, and the weather decided to clear up and give us some sunshine as well.

The larches are in full yellows and oranges now, so come on up for some great views and hot drinks here at the Lodge. We are still taking accomodation reservations into October as well.

We hope to see you up here!
