Reviewed 15 April 2016

Just returned from 5 days in paradise. Back country skiing takes on an entirely different persona when your hiking starts close to treeline. The heli trip does more than 1/2 the work and your walking now ends high in the alpine.
The lodge at Sol is first class. individual rooms for sleeping, indoor washrooms, in lodge showers, hot and cold running water and enough room for all to lounge about after a hard day out skiing. The drying room is big enough for large groups to don ski clothing and there is an area to work on skis if need be. The sauna is in a out building within 20 M of the lodge door.
The ski tenure is very, very big. To explore all corners of the available ski terrain would take a month of touring, but there is terrain to suit all levels with a couple of hours walk. If you care to read about our day to day adventures see our not for profit blog, havecarryonwilltravel. There are couloirs to scare the pants off you and slopes gentle enough to introduce a novice to back country skiing.
The caretaker, Dave, is a great guy. He takes time to answer any question and is an ambassador promoting the area and it's highlights at every opportunity. Our group was self catered, Dave was our mentor and lead us down the straight and narrow in a most courteous manner.
We skied there in mid April and there was no new snow but the spring skiing conditions were excellent. We walked early when the snow was still hard making for fast travel and tried to arrive at the slopes we wanted to ski just as the sun had soften the snow. We had 2 or 3 hours of ideal skiing and then headed home. Each of the 5 days was slightly different and each day was great on its own.
I have been to Sol twice, both times in the spring. I have yet to ski the deep snow the Monashee's are known for. I hope to soon.

This is a great location for a couple or small group getaway - in style. In summer lotsa high elevation hiking and ridge walking - aim for late July or August. I expect that in winter they have awesome powder judging from the beautiful terrain. The hosts Aaron, Sabine, Dave and the crew are wonderful folks, who have built a unique off-the-grid Lodge on the edge of Monashee Provincial Park. Access by copter in winter. Drive in in summer. They provide all the amenities. We stayed here two nights as a gift. What a sweet present to get!

Settled in the heart of the Monashee, this recently-built lodge is a beautiful as the warmth that greets its visitors. The owner and staff are very friendly and, like their mountian guides, very professional. I would recommend Sol Mountain Lodge to any keen skier who seeks great powder and who professes a desire to earn his way to the top of the hill.
The climbs are hard at times, but the trail up is very inspiring.
That is it--I am hooked!
