Purcell Mountain Lodge sits 2,200 meters up on the beautiful slopes of the Bald Mountains near Golden. The lodge was built over twenty five years ago from wood and iron flown in so that there was no damage to the pristine ecosystem. And pristine hardly describes the natural beauty that surrounds the lodge; every possible corner, every angle, every view is spectacular enough to take your breath away and so remote that most people will never see such a sight in their lifeteime. The terrain around the lodge is diverse offering incredible hikes, sweeping alpine meadows and enough adventure or relaxation...whatever suits your guests.
All the modern amenities and comforts you need are provided when you stay at Purcell Mountain Lodge, but at the same time they strive to make the least impact possible on the ecosystem. For instance, power for the lodge is generated from the nearby stream and space is limited to 30 guests at a time so they can operate with no waste.
Purcell Mountain lodge is accessible by helicopter all year-round (it's a short 15 minute ride from Golden) and during the summer months you can also hike into the lodge on a 13 km trail. Staying in the backcountry means you won't be bombarded with hundreds of tourists scrambling for the same photo opportunity or lining up to catch a glimpse of the wildlife, in fact, the lodge can be exclusively yours for your wedding!
