Bighorn Lodge wins fourth straight World Ski Award

Revelstoke Mountain Resort named best ski resort in Canada; Bighorn world's best ski lodge at World Ski Awards.

The Bighorn Lodge team accepts the award for World’s Best Ski Chalet.

Revelstoke’s Bighorn Lodge was named the World’s Best Ski Chalet for the fourth year in a row at the World Ski Awards, which were handed out in the Kitzbuehel, Austria, last weekend.

The luxurious, 15,000-square-foot lodge at the foot of Revelstoke Mountain Resort first won the title in 2013 and it kept up its winning streak this year.

The lodge offers eight rooms, each with its own balcony and television; a triple-height great room, a dining room that sits 16, a bar, pool table, private cinema, pool, hot tub, sauna, massage room, ski locker and a private heli-pad where well-heeled guests can be whisked away for a day of powder skiing.

They also enjoy a private chef, customized menus, massage therapists and even a private yoga instructor, if they so desire.

The Bighorn beat out 15 other luxury chalets from around the world for the honour. It was built by British brothers Michael and Chris Kirkland and costs about $10,000 per night to book it for you and your friends, not including heli-skiing.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort was name Canada’s Best Ski Resort. Selkirk Tangiers Heli-skiing was nominated in the category of World’s Best Heli-Ski Operator.

Val Thorens, in France, was named the World’s Best Ski Resort.

The World Ski Awards was launched in 2013 to “drive up standards within the ski industry by rewarding the organizations that are leaders in their field.”
