If you want to see the real Canadian wilderness, put on your back country skis and go to Skoki Lodge. You will see spectacular scenery and get a great workout skiing over Deception Pass. The downhill to the lodge is quite enjoyable. The lodge offers relatively comfortable lodging, but it does not have electricity or running water. I found it did not offer some of the amenities offered at other backcountry lodges such as guides, soft fluffy comforters, and warm water delivered to your door. The folks at the lodge did offer maps and supplied a lovely afternoon tea. This was quite welcome after the winds and snows were encountered on our journey.
