Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. My sincerest apologies for a couple of proverbial "bumps in the road", although it sounds as though my colleagues did their best to make amends. Christmas is a very busy time for The Lodge and I thank you...More

The food is better than I expected. Reasonably priced. It’s one of the places that I have made a mental note to come back next ski season. I love the tuna and salmon poke dish. Absolutely amazing. Try it.

Fresh. Casual. Local. Inspired and influenced by our people, our place and our produce, AURA creates a casual and comfortable dining experience in a unique lakeside setting. Whether it's freshly-caught salmon from the west coast of BC or black trumped mushrooms foraged from the forest around us, we create unforgettable dishes using lovingly-harvested seasonal ingredients and then we share it with friends.
