By providing a non-judgmental and no-pressure arena for all students, her classes allow individuals to choose the best options for them.

Expect to move with attention and work with intention. Practice with self-inquiry and compassion.

Autumn Operations Update

As autumn falls upon us, we watch the colors of the trees rapidly turn. The Tyaughton Lake remains still as the lake loons prepare to venture south, and have we have savored the time with our guests and team alike this summer season.

We are thankful for the opportunity to resume our operations in the post-pandemic world. A big thanks to all of our guests, team members, and the Bridge River Valley community for their support and patronage through these times.

With our last day of summer operations on October 5th, we look forward to preparing for our 2023 winter heliskiing season, and for our summer season in late May 2023.

Relax At Tyax Lodge

Dining at Tyax Lodge

Morning

Waking up in your luxurious bed in Tyax Lodge is the perfect start to your relaxing day. Tyax Lodge was renovated in 2010 and finished with high-end features that make your stay here extra special. Our Sealy pillow top mattresses and feather pillows make our beds some of the most comfortable that you’ll ever sleep in. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and ready for your day.

But first coffee. Your room has a coffee machine to make your own fresh brew as you watch the sunrise above the mountains surrounding around Tyax Lodge. Log-on to the complimentary Wi-Fi or turn on the flat-screen TV to check in on the outside world. Or if you’d rather leave it all behind, you can use the iPod docking station and listen to your favourite music instead.

Breakfast

For breakfast at Tyax Lodge, you will be served fresh, tasty food, grown in our unique setting. The region surrounding Tyax Lodge allows us to serve you locally grown organic vegetables and stone fruit. Our kitchen garden has fresh herbs and fruits that are served to you within minutes of being picked. We also have a culinary team here who forage for fresh ingredients daily just for you. Enjoy your breakfast knowing that your food is sustainably and consciously sourced from the land around you.

 

Tyaughton Lake

After breakfast, you can take a short, leisurely stroll down the gravel path to Lake Tyaughton and continue your day of relaxation.

In summer the water of Lake Tyaughton is the perfect temperature to take a dip and cool off. With views of the lodge and Nea Peak in the background, this might just be the most scenic swim you’ll ever have. You can also enjoy the lake by fishing and basking in the sunshine. Or if you’d rather spend your day on the water, feel free to use any of our paddleboards, kayaks, and canoes.

Tyaughton Lake and Tyax Lodge

When winter comes Lake Tyaughton freezes over and becomes the perfect place to skate and to try ice-fishing. If you’d prefer to stretch your legs a bit more, you can take advantage of the cross-country skiing and hiking trails around the lodge. Tyax Lodge is a hive of activity no matter what time of year.

 

Lunch

By now you’ll be looking forward to another delicious meal. Lucky for you Chef Marco Duarte is on hand to serve up another memorable meal.

Chef Duarte is originally from Montreal and has honed his craft by travelling and working all over the world. South East Asia, Australia, Alaska, Montreal, and his Portuguese roots have all influenced his culinary style and philosophies. He believes in utterly passionate people creating food with the freshest ingredients possible. All his years of experience and dedication translate into a lunch that you’ll remember for a long time.

 

Spa

After a hard day of dining and exploring Tyax Lodge, you’ll earn some “me time” at the spa. Lucky for you there is a wide range of treatments and facilities on hand.

Head on over to our yoga studio to limber up and find your inner calm. This sunny studio has beautiful views of Lake Tyaughton, allowing you to further connect with the nature around you.

Tyax Lodge Spa Sauna

Our massage therapies will relieve whatever tension and makes that you may have. We have massage treatments designed specifically to soothe your stiff muscles, to help you fully relax and a neck massage to help alleviate any stress in your body.

Our highly-trained staff is on hand to create a treatment plan that is just for you. They’ll select the best locally sourced ingredients that will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

After your massage therapy, you can unwind even further in our infra-red sauna, eucalyptus steam bath, and an outdoor hot tub. By the end of your spa day, any stress and tension will have melted away.

 

Dinner

What better way to round off your relaxing day at Tyax Lodge than a seasonally inspired menu. Chef Durate creates his menu with locally sourced, in-season ingredients. All our bread is made in house and our meat comes from local organic farmers, which we butcher ourselves. Allow our sommelier to pair your meal choice with a fine wine from our extensive wine menu.

Night-Time

After dinner, you can stop by the bar and have a nightcap of your choice as you cozy up by the fireplace. Chat with the other guests and share tips on where to explore tomorrow.

After a long day of relaxation and dining, you’ll be delighted to return to your comfortable room. A good night of sleep is much needed for you to get up and do it all again tomorrow.
