MORAINE LAKE

MORAINE LAKE

Situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks sits the absolutely stunning Moraine Lake. Often inaccessible due to traffic restrictions, feel confident knowing that you won't be turned away. Go for a canoe, peaceful lunch or head out on one of the many hiking trails that begin from here.

 

Moraine Lake Lodge

Wine lovers will delight in the impressive wine cellar, including Canadian and American vintages. Graced by a large stone fireplace and an elegant Rocky Mountain interior, views of Moraine Lake through the massive windows in the atrium provide a spectacular vista.

Reservations are highly recommended, though walk-ins are welcomed when space permits.

Dining Room hours are breakfast 7:00am -10:30am and dinner 5:30pm -9:00pm

Café and Gift Shop

The Snowshoe Café is open daily and offers a variety of deli foods, fresh baked pastries, hot and cold meals, beverages, snacks and ice creams.
