Environmental Stewardship

At Retallack, we do everything we can to preserve our planet’s precious alpine wilderness for future generations to enjoy. We believe it’s essential for the outdoor adventure industry to adopt measures that minimize its impact on the natural environment. And we think it’s important that holiday-makers have the option of choosing eco-friendly destinations.

That’s why Retallack is one of the greenest operations in the backcountry skiing and boarding industry – not to mention among the most environmentally-aware accommodation you’ll find anywhere in Canada. In fact, Retallack was the first cat- or heli-skiing operation to be awarded four green keys from the Hotel Association of Canada’s Green Key Eco-Rating programme. The four-key rating is awarded to hotels that show “national industry leadership and commitment to protecting the environment through wide-ranging policies and practices”. Retallack is also an associate member of Helicat Canada and adheres to its strict environmental operating procedures.

Retallack Lodge is completely self-sufficient and “off-the-grid.” All of our power is supplied by our own hydroelectric plant. For a complete list of the steps we’ve taken to reduce our ecological footprint please click here.
