The Island Lake Lodge Tamarack Dining Room has been setting the standard for mountain Cuisine for many years.
The French inspired Rocky Mountain Cuisine has recently been documented in a cookbook from Whitecap publishing.
The approach to food at Island Lake Lodge is simple; complexity without complication. We use our best efforts to use organic and traditionally raised foods and prepare them with unpretentious flavourings and well-executed techniques. We believe there should be strong connections between plate, planet, people, and culture. It is from this belief that we are committed to the procurement of ethically raised and enviro-wise products and offer them in healthy and balanced dishes. We believe in unprocessed, unrefined, whole foods, ‘real food’. These real foods, traditionally prepared offer countless of flavours and textures and concentrated sources of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
In winter, for those not catskiing, experience Island Lake Lodge with a snowcat ride & lunch package. Dinner reservations are offered pre-Christmas.
The main road to the lodge in winter is not plowed so everyone gets to enjoy a snowcat ride to and from the lodge (20 minute ride, must be booked in advance). You can drive your vehicle to the lower parking lot for Island Lake Lodge (by the big Lodge sign), just a couple kilometers up Mt Fernie Provincial Park Road, this road is just off Highway 3 across from the Stanford Resort Hotel.
