The CAC Experience

Getting away from the crowd is what it’s all about.

Our limit of 8 guests at a time enhances the experience at the Lodge and while skiing, snowboarding, or hiking. CAC’s guest groups are half the industry average, and that is deliberate.  Our small capacity makes it easy to reserve a solo adventure and join other guests, or reserve exclusive use of the lodge (minimum of 6 guests required). Each guest enjoys a uniquely private ambiance, whether as part of a group reserving the entire lodge, or joining other guests.



Our backcountry lodge is located on the west slope of the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains, and it’s the perfect place to get away & explore huge snowfalls of dry powder on the remote peaks and surrounding valleys. Be the first to name (& ride) a run, as there are many that have never been ridden.


With the incredible Rocky Mountain scenery as your backdrop, our lodge is the perfect basecamp for trekking in wilderness solitude. Enjoy a multi-day guided hiking trip or simply explore the terrain – there are numerous creeks, lakes, waterfalls, meadows, wild flowers, glaciers and more, all in walking distance from the lodge.

Mallard Mountain Lodge

With just 8 guests at a time & access only by a 30 minute heli flight, CAC’s Mallard Mountain Lodge is the most private & remote lodge in the Canadian Rockies. And we like it that way. There are no TV’s, and no neighbors…but plenty of quiet, unlimited terrain to tour.

Your Hosts

With many years of experience operating adventure tours in western Canada, and a passion for the great British Columbia wilderness, the McManus family began developing the Punch Bowl area of the Rocky Mountains in 1998.
