Mount Engadine Lodge, a Castleavery Hospitality Ventures property, is one of Kananaskis Country’s best kept secrets. Our unique, all-inclusive property features back-country access to world-renowned skiing, snowshoeing and hiking, with the amenities and comforts of a modern resort, including a gourmet restaurant and bar. 

We pride ourselves in providing an elevated backcountry experince, and are Eco-Stay Certified. To keep our environmental footprint as small as possible, our lodge relies on a generator and battery bank for power. There are no TVs or telephones in the rooms, no cell service, and WiFi connectivity is limited (there is a satellite phone in the main office for emergencies). We encourage guests to disconnect and embrace the surrounding wilderness.

Lodge History

The Beginning
Mount Engadine Lodge was built in 1987 and named after the nearby peak, Mount Engadine. Later, as part of the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, nearby peaks were designated as Alpine and Nordic ski areas.
Originally, the Lodge consisted of the main building which houses the common areas and lodge rooms. In 1997, the Moose and Elk rooms were added, plus the main lounge and the meadow-view cabins.
Renovations and upgrades were made to the rooms and operating systems over the years.
In 2016, a canvas Yurt was added to the property and in 2018, five Glamping Tents were completed with full ensuite bathrooms and private decks.
Mount Engadine was named as 1 of 5 Canadian Hotels on Fodor's Travel's list of the 101 Most Incredible Hotels in the World for 2022. We were also given the Tripadvisor Traveller's Choice Award in 2022 and 2023 as the #1 Hidden Gem in Kananaskis.

Highway 742 is plowed and sanded regularly during winter months, but please drive with caution.

We have plenty of parking space available for guests. Please reverse into parking stalls in the winter, as some car batteries may need a jump start when the weather is cold.
