  • Description


    We are a small family run mountain lodge located in Cathedral Provincial Park, British Columbia. We offer accommodation and dining to up to fifty people in the summer months.
    At 2100 meters or almost 7000 feet, we are set in a remote high alpine setting, two hours by car from the nearest town of Keremeos. Keremeos is a four hour drive from Vancouver.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Depending on the time of year, there are up to six volunteers at a time, hailing from all around the world. This provides not only for an interesting environment, but also a great opportunity to meet and make new friends.

  • Help


    Volunteers play an integral role in daily life. Help is required with general duties involved in operating a remote, off the grid, mountain resort. Tasks may include firewood gathering, kindling splitting, trail building, grounds and building maintenance, general housekeeping, and even driving.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In free time, there are an abundance of alpine hiking trails to explore, seven pristine lakes to swim, fish, and even canoe in! Wildlife such as Mountain Goats, California Bighorn Sheep and Mule Deer frequent the high alpine ridges and meadows. High amongst the rocky outcroppings hikes are likely to see large Hoary marmots or perhaps the shy Pica.

    Only those people with an appreciation and interest in mountains, the outdoors, hiking, fishing, climbing, and living in a remote environment should apply.
