Dear Friends and Fans of Tyax Lodge & Heliskiing,
As we remain fully committed to the health, safety, and well-being of both our guests and our staff at Tyax Lodge, we are closely and actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and are conforming to the guidelines put forth by the federal and provincial governments, local health officials, and the World Health Organization.
July 15, 2020 Update
The response this summer from visitors has been wonderful…..conditions in the campground continue to be improved, and as of 3 days ago, we inaugurated a second set of outhouses, down by the lower level. Never has such excitement been had over a “poo station”.
Also, our restaurant will be opening up once again, on Saturday, July 18th. While still offering a limited menu, we are slowly returning to what we all consider our new normal.
Please note that the campsites have been extremely popular. We only offer booking online, no walk-ins, so if you are interested in camping at our lakeside campground, be sure to get your requests in as soon as you know your dates. There are many days that have already sold out.
Stay safe and healthy!
With these priorities of our guests and staff in mind, and against an ever-changing backdrop of travel restrictions around the world, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to delay the opening date of Tyax Lodge’s upcoming summer season to Friday, June 26, 2020.
At that time, our campground and chalets will become available, however, we are currently expected to keep the lodge closed until further notice. Please note that while our restaurant will also remain closed, our patio will be open for drinks and light snacks.
We have undertaken enhanced health and safety measures by reinforcing our sanitation and cleaning protocols to keep all visitors to our area and resort as safe as we can.
As the guidance for travel is constantly being updated, we will remain as fluid as we can while the situation evolves. Please continue to visit this page for updates.
Despite these ongoing challenges, we are look forward to welcoming many new and returning guests to the Bridge River Valley.
To request a summer booking or to obtain our current availability, please contact:
Mal, Guest Services/Reservations, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our phones continue to be monitored Monday to Friday during reduced office hours.
