Hi John, we are back home safely now and I thought I would drop you a line to say how much we loved your chalet.We had never been to Canada before and took a chance on researching our accommodation and organising it all ourselves. We were absolutely chuffed to bits with the chalet. It really was better than we had hoped for. We found Yoho National Park a real delight. The hikes we did (especially the Twin Falls) were superb and being a little quieter than the other parks meant that we could get away from the madding crowds which is what we wanted.If anyone is looking to visit Canada and wants peace and quiet but easy access to all the main sites then they could do not better than staying at your chalet.Thanks.

J Houghton from Devon, England Date of visit: July 29, 2016

My family loved staying at your chalet in Yoho. I especially loved that everyone had their own beds, which is nice when you have 3 kids. The chalet was very clean and well maintained. The view from the front porch was amazing. Due to traveling issues our vacation had to be cut short which made us all very sad because the Canadian Rockies was our favorite part. We literally went from sunup to sundown to try to fit as much in as we could in 3 days as oppose to 5. I would highly recommend a family staying in your chalet and I hope that someday we will be able to return as well. Thank you again for the opportunity to use your chalet to make family memories,

A Emmenderfer from Cape Girardeau, Missouri Date of visit: July 20, 2016

The cabin was exactly what our family of four needed as a basecamp for our adventures in Yoho, Banff and Jasper. The location is remote but fantastic. We enjoyed spending time down by the river each day after our hiking adventures. The nearby town of Golden is a great stop for supplies, groceries, etc. Everything at the cabin was as advertised. The cabin itself is cozy, comfortable and well appointed. The on site manager was there to meet us on the first day and made sure we had everything we needed. The view of the mountains from the front porch is superb. I highly recommend a stay at Yoho Chalets.Thanks again.

D Johns from Moorseville, North Carolina Date of visit: July 9, 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at your chalet. It is one of the best equipped and presented chalets/cottages we have ever stayed at. All amenities and facilities were first rate–very clean–from bathroom to bedroom to kitchen. Nice touches all around. 10 out of 10.

R Mayot from Ontario Date of visit: June 17, 2016

We had a wonderful stay at our charlet – so peaceful and quiet. We didn’t miss anything. Everything was perfect. The view was breathtaking.
Best stay ever during our 24 days journey.

D Millhahn from Potsdam, Germany Date of visit: May 31,2016

We had a great stay at this chalet. It is a beautiful log cabin that has been well cared for. We loved sitting on the front porch and sharing a meal outside. In the evenings the chance to sit around the fire in the fire are roast marshmallows was great. It is in a group of cabins and is probably one of the best placed of the bunch. The location is was also great for us. In the areas there are lots of great hikes to explore. We also canoed at Emerald lake which was a great experience for our young children.

R Anderson from Calgary, Alberta Date of visit: May 20, 2016

We arrived safe & sound to your beautiful chalet yesterday afternoon. We are really enjoying the area & hope that we’ll be able to come back to this gorgeous place again sometime soon! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay here for a few nights – we are enjoying every minute here!

First of all, thanks again for sharing your beautiful chalet with us. We truly enjoyed all of the comforts of home while looking out the window & seeing the beauty that surrounded us! Thank you so much for your hospitality- we had an incredible trip & hope to return someday soon!

A Jolson from River Falls, Wisconsin Date of visit: March 9, 2016

My partner and I stayed at the Yoho Chalet in early February to celebrate my birthday. The chalet was very spacious and well equipped to host a group of 6 people. The chalets are beautiful wood buildings with open beams and huge windows and a nice sheltered porch. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and we wished we had packed some steak or salmon to take advantage of the BBQ. The chalet is really clean and well maintained. The location is fantastic for all kinds of activities including xc skiing, downhill skiing, skidooing, and snowshoeing. It is within 30 minutes of Golden and Field and really close to Emerald Lake. If you are not feeling like cooking for yourself, there are great restaurants in Field and of course the Emerald Lake Lodge. My partner is a novice xc skier and he really enjoyed his first ski on Emerald Lake where the scenery is stellar. There is a business that rents xc skies and snowshoes so you can try these sports for the first time. There was a ton of fresh snow and the conditions were ideal for all types of outdoor activities.

J Barber from High River, Alberta Date of visit: February 5, 2016

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your Chalet. We enjoyed a wonderful week of skiing/ boarding at some of the best hills in the Rockies. A favorite moment was returning to the chalet in the evening and warming ourselves in front of the fireplace. Even the driving to and from Kicking Horse and Lake Louise was breathtaking. Our family went to sleep early and slept well every night. The intermittent wifi only promoted better family conversations. Imagine! (** We subsequently put in dedicated WIFI and the internet is much better)

S O’Driscoll from Oakville, Ontario Date of visit: December 26, 2015

We had a fantastic time at the chalet. My Fiancee is from Australia so it was a very special time for her to see some of the Rockies and experience cold weather and snow on the day we left. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome chalet with us, sure hope to be back at some point again.Wow is all you can say!! We were at the chalet for 2 nights with all the comforts of home. It is very clean and tidy, such an awesome experience. The views are simply breathtaking and there is loads of things within a short distance for you to discover. Very much worth it and we sure hope to be back again.
On closing once again I wish to thank you so much for an unforgettable experience in your chalet. Thank you John.

M Pasmen from Kamloops, BC Date of visit: October 24, 2015

Jim and I loved the area. The wildlife viewing was sensational ! Had a Super week ! Lake O’Hara was breathtaking !!! Thank you for recommending it. Your Chalet is beautiful. The interior is so warm and inviting !

P Angermaier from New York Date of visit: September 17, 2015

Our family of three spent 10 days in September 2015 at your very comfortable chalet in the mountains of B.C. There was nothing lacking. Everything we needed was there. The whole place was spotless. The beds were comfortable and I especially liked the rustic decor. That huge stone fireplace was so cozy in the evenings. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit outside. It was a perfect place to sit and talk over the events of the day.

Your chalet is so beautifully located. We could see snow capped Chancellor Peak right from the front of the chalet. And from the kitchen window I could do dishes and watch the sun change the view on the forest & mountains straight ahead. We walked down to the Kicking Horse River, which is a short hike from the chalet. There we watched people boarding large rafts to challenge the river. Also, there was a zip line. There is much to do in the mountains. Besides fabulous scenery everywhere we visited Banff, Jasper, the Icefields Parkway, saw glaciers and spectacular waterfalls and much more. Johnson's Canyon is a must as is Lake O'Hara. We saw mountain goats, elk, a bear & cub.

Thank you John, for sharing your lovely chalet with us. It helped make our vacation very special.

S Houghland from Oshawa, Ontario Date of visit: August 31, 2015

We enjoyed our stay at Yoho Chalets very much. It is a wonderfull cabin, with a spectacular view on Chancellors Peak.Close to Yoho National Park which is beautifull.

The fully equipped kitchen, good internet (very important for the kids) and nice beds, made our stay more comfortable.Further down the road we saw a wolf and a Elk.We would have liked to stay longer.

E Kunengord from the Netherlands Date of visit: July 26, 2015

Made it home safely John. Had a great time at your chalet. I feel bad that we forgot to give Leah a tip...The cleanliness upon arrival was impeccable.Thanks again.

M Mallett from New Brunswick Date of visit: July 4, 2015

Our stay at Yoho Chalet in late June to early July was fabulous! The chalet was small but clean and well appointed with amenities. Everything was in excellent working order. The convenience of the chalet to the mid-portion of the Canadian Rockies (Yoho Park, Lake Louise, Icefields Parkway) cannot be overstated. John was especially kind in accommodating our slightly larger family, and we all managed to fit in nicely. Our only complaint was that there are no laundry facilities on site. We had to travel into Field to do a couple of loads of laundry mid-week. Otherwise, an excellent stay!

W Green from Waterford, Vermont Date of visit: June 27, 2015

I just wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for letting us stay at your chalet. What a great location! We enjoyed the views (and the cool weather) so much! We also enjoyed a great hike to Wapta Falls off that service road and even spotted your bear!

Again - we loved your chalet and the location. That area is magical and I'm so glad we were able to visit!

M Fisher from North Carolina Date of visit: June 13, 2015

My boyfriend decided to surprise me and booked a weekend away at the Yoho Chalet in May. I am not a camper and normally do not like anything close to connecting with the outdoors (my boyfriend on the other hand...well sometimes I think he would like to live in a tent!) but I was blown away by this chalet. To start with, my boyfriend received a call from the owner the day before we were supposed to arrive. He detailed how to get there, how to get in and they even had a conversation about some of the activities that my boyfriend was going to try to talk me into doing! That phone call deserves recognition because very few places nowadays have that kind of personal touch customer service. That call sent the tone for an amazing weekend.

Walking up to the cabin it was just picture perfect. I loved the very large deck and the unobstructed view of the mountains. Going inside I was not prepared for the cleanliness or the beauty of this gorgeous cabin. It was well stocked for our needs including things I had brought thinking this would be more of a "roughing it" experience (things like a jug for water/juice and a cheese grater). The satellite radio worked great and we watched TV a bit at the end of the evenings with no problems at all. This is the perfect combination of being away from the city and still feeling comfortable. We sat around the fire at night enjoying the peace and beauty of this little spot and in the morning we woke up and had breakfast on the deck just taking in the surroundings. This is the way to recharge!

We did take in some of the local attractions with much success (yes, my boyfriend talked me into it). The horseback riding is just up the road (a little longer than we thought but not an astronomical feat to get there) and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at the Beaverfoot Lodge. We went into Golden to look around at some of the cute little shops and on the way back to the city we stopped in at Emerald Lake which is a must see in my view. We also stopped at one of the recommended restaurants on the way home; Truffle Pig Bistro in Field. Worth the recommendation but we did have to wait a bit longer than we would have expected for our meals.

Overall, we plan on booking this chalet again and next time we're thinking...white water rafting!

J. Radke from Calgary, Alberta Date of visit: May 22, 2015

Hello John. We just arrived and I have to say I am very impressed. Normally we stay in Banff and it is double the price of this cabin and only a small hotel room. Also we have stayed at cabins before and they never had the amount of things in it as this one. I would love to retire here. They are absolutely gorgeous!

N. Baldanado from Ft. Saskatchewan, Alberta Date of visit: March 13, 2015

We enjoyed our winter stay at the end of February. We decided very last minute to stay at Yoho Chalet. John was extremely accommodating even though he was away on his own vacation. We loved the cabin. It is just like the pictures. It was clean and comfortable and quiet, just what we were looking for.

When we arrived we noticed a lot of dogs barking but never saw any and never heard them again the whole week.It was a good location for us as we did a lot of hiking in Yoho. It only took us a little over an hour to drive to Sunshine to go skiing. Lots of groceries available in Golden. Our cell service is with Rogers and the week we were there they started service in the area which was helpful as there is no phone in the chalet but there is wifi. The shower is small if that is a concern but the tub upstairs is a wonderful alternative. The on-site manager Leah was so kind and considerate. Even though there are 21 chalets on this property it feels private. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope we can come back with the kids some day!

S. Paddock from Rivers, Manitoba Date of visit: March 2, 2015

We wanted to tell you that we had a great three days at the Yoho Chalet. We went cross country skiing, snowshoeing and touring in the Yoho area and spent some high quality time at the chalet where we cooked some terrific meals, had a glass of wine or two, sat by the fireplace and talked about everything! We enjoyed the peace and quite so much we decided to "unplug"; we did not watch TV, and we shut down the iphones and ipads for three days! The chalet was very cozy, clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our getaway to the mountains. We also noticed how well built the chalet is, the heavy log structure, the natural materials like real stone for the fire place, and the wilderness decor gave the chalet a genuine Canadian woods feel. The atmosphere took us very far away from the big city and we loved it! We look forward to coming back to the Yoho Chalet, maybe in the summer time when we can go canoeing and hiking at nearby Emerald Lake.

Thanks again John!

S. Richardson from Okotoks, Alberta Date of visit: February 19, 2015

Following our recent stay at the Yoho Chalet I would like to thank you for the opportunity to utilize the facility, the accommodation was very comfortable, very suitable for our family of 5, warm, cosy and well positioned between 2 fantastic ski locations in Lake Louise & Kicking Horse. In addition, the short drive to Golden with a number of excellent restaurants to chose from was very helpful for a short stay.

We hope we can visit again in the future.

J. Mahor from Calgary, Alberta Date of visit: January 30, 2015

Our family of four adults stayed at the chalet for three days between Christmas and New Years. The chalet is most comfortable with all the amenities one would need. The kitchen is very well equipped and it is a treat to have a gas BBQ on the deck. We enjoyed the warming fireplace in the evening. The beds are very comfortable and had lovely cozy bedding for the cool winter nights. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. We went snowshoeing right out from the front door and had great fun breaking trail and enjoying the beautiful scenery and peace and quiet. We skied at both Lake Louise and Kicking Horse at Golden and found the location had great access to both hills after a short drive on the number 1 highway. We very much appreciated the welcoming bottle of wine! The stargazing was incredible on beautiful clear nights. I would highly recommend this lovely spot for a mountain getaway in any season.

C. Jeffrey from Calgary, Alberta Date of visit: December 27, 2014

Hi John. We loved the chalet. It was perfect for the 2 couples. We cooked breakfast everyday and then were off. It was cold but we dressed in our 5 layers and did everything we wanted to do. The first morning we awakened to new snow on the mountains. Lake Louise had about 3 inches on the ground, but no snow at your place. We saw a couple of piles of bear scat and tipped over garbage cans, so think there were bears around. We went up to the Columbia Icefields and it was clear that day but cold. The day we went to Banff it was snowy but managed to hike up Stewart Canyon. We were at Lake Louise a couple of times so got some snowy pictures and some clear sky pictures. We had 2 nights at Emerald Lake Lodge and it was beautiful there with sun and mixed clouds. We hiked 9 mi one day and walked around the lake (3 mi).

E. Grow from Morrison, Colorado Date of visit: September 9, 2014

The Yoho Chalet was a very personal and peaceful get a way. A home away from home. We highly enjoyed the quaint cabin and beautiful scenery.

S. Hawkins from Carrollton, Texas Date of visit: September 1, 2014

Everything worked perfect. We enjoyed our stay very much! It's really a beautiful and comfortable chalet.

Best regards from my family!

A. Scheub from Murr, Germany Date of visit: August 18, 2014

We had a fantastic stay at Yoho Chalets. Log cabins were awesome and we enjoyed lighting the fire every nite to sit around, enjoy wine and cook wieners on. Loved watching the critters (marmots, chipmunks, birds) in the evenings.
This part of our stay was one of our most memorable.
Thanks for the bottle of wine. Was a good choice.

C. Pittam from Tauranga, New Zealand Date of visit: June 30, 2014

This place was great. It was very clean and had everything included for us to enjoy ourselves. We will definitely stay there again as it was private and secluded. Just a short drive for families to do many activities. Owners were very accommodating and helped us out with many different wants. We stayed 3 nights and would have loved to stay longer. Will definitely tell others about this great gem.

Stig Gjerlaug from Medicine Hat, Alberta Date of visit: July 10, 2014

We were looking for a weekend away and found this lovely chalet next to Kicking Horse river. Its close to highway 1 and Golden, but situated beautiful in the Valley. The views are wonderful and the veranda with BBQ and firepit close made it even better.
Our family of 5 (kids 13/11/7) enjoyed spending the weekend and consider returning for another weekend.
We made trips to Golden and Fields. Emerald lake and Wapta Falls are beautiful. We did the falls from Kicking Horse Rd without any issues and were rewarded with a beautiful spot overlooking the falls.
The chalet has everything you need and help is on-site if you still have questions.

A. Westhuis from Cochran, Alberta Date of visit: April 17, 2014

Our family and friends have been going to the Yoho log cabins over 6 years. We have been resting, relaxing, playing and enjoying ourselves with beautiful nature, lodging and blessings from loving staff. Over the years we got to know the area explore to the falls, skiing, snow shoe, hiked, and truly we call it home away from home. All you have to do is respect the nature, your space bringing peace, joy and love

J. Alavi from Calgary, Alberta Numerous visits

Perfect!
We stayed at Yoho Chalets at Christmas time and it was absolutely magical! The chalet is clean, roomy, warm and cozy.
Fireplace inside, fire pit outside, beautiful mountain views, even a dishwasher! How could you go wrong? We will definitely be back!

R. Hamilton from Calgary, Alberta Date of visit: December 23, 2013

We recently stayed in the Yoho Chalet for 3 nights over Christmas break. It was the perfect winter getaway. The log cabin is beautiful and welcoming, and we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay - right down to the wood and utensils for cooking s'mores on the open fire pit outside. It is a very special cabin in a gorgeous location, we highly recommend it.

Nick and Dione from Vancouver, BC Date of visit: December 27, 2013

We only have good things to say about this place. The cabin itself was very spacious for our family of 4 and the view from the porch was about as good as it gets. Very modern and comfortable with great beds, fireplace, grill, firepit, TV, dishwasher... everything we like. Although there are many cabins nearby it almost seems like you are alone due to the placement of the cabin. Great location, for us it was a beautiful drive to the city of Banff and north to the icefield parkway, easily the most beautiful scenery we have seen in our lifetime. The kids had fun skipping rocks in the nearby river, be sure to keep your eyes peeled as we did see a black bear while we were there which was another bonus. Would stay here again without hesitation.

H. Fabian from La Crescent, Minnesota Date of visit: October 2, 2013

Had very good time. Cabin is clean, convenient, and very well located.
View of the mountain is fabulous.
Everything's was above our expectations.

E. Tremblay from Quebec City, Quebec Date of visit: August 17, 2013

My buddies and I planned 3 days of hiking (including the Burgess Shale) in beautiful Yoho National Park and we needed a place that could sleep 4 comfortably. Yoho Chalet fit the bill perfectly. It's location is ideal for a relaxing BBQ after a long day of hiking. The chalet is nicely decorated and is very well equipped for preparing great meals. The satellite radio and wifi were unexpected treats for this remote location. And the view of Chancellor Peak from the chalet is great. Yoho Chalet is a definite do over.

R. Myers from Calgary, Alberta Date of visit: July 10, 2013

We were looking for a secluded location nearby to Banff and Yoho for 4 days of exploring and came upon this jewel! The chalet, part of a small grouping of similar units, fit our needs perfectly. The well-built log cabin was just the right mix of rustic charm and practical convenience. We enjoyed preparing breakfast each morning in the well-appointed kitchen before our day's adventures in the area. When we booked the chalet, the owner offered many great suggestions for day trips. One of our favorite restaurants was The Truffle Pig in the little town of Field, on the way to Lake Louise. Another day trip took us through Golden where we enjoyed lunch and local brew at the Tap pub. Also, don't miss stopping for a meal at the beautiful Banff Springs lodge. The food and the view were exceptional. I'd gladly recommend this chalet to friends and family. The photos in the listing are accurate and the property is beautifully maintained. We would definitely like to return some day.

Jay Terrer from Wilmington, North Carolina Date of visit: July 1, 2013

We are a couple from Europe and have been travelling through British Columbia and Alberta almost one month...So, we have visited and stayed at many wonderful places ...
Although, they were very nice, we finally found an ideal place for our vacation. This is Yoho Chalet located at the edge of Yoho National Park.
We don't have to mention that the location is simply great!! Situated at the intersection of TC#1 and Beaverfoot Rd, immediately outside Yoho NP, you can reach easily Banff and Kootenay National Parks. To Jasper you can make a one day trip. You can easily reach many wonderful hikes in Yoho, Banff and Kootenay NP's.
Besides that, we would like to express our best opinion on the place. Our chalet is like our home, you will find here everything...Extremely clean, neat, equipped with everything you can imagine... Would you like a grill??.. everything is prepared!! Would you like a privacy???... nobody asks you any questions!! You can enjoy the mountains view, having your dinner in the shade of sunset... It is georgeous!!.....Unforgetable....
It was so easy to book the place, however you have to do very early. Later we were nicely guided by Mr John Powell. Always he asked us whether everything is ok and immediately answered every our question.
We stayed for 9 nights, we would like to have stayed longer.... THANK YOU FOR THIS UNFORGETABLE PLACE, THIS IS PARADISE!!! If you want to have a wonderful vacation, come here, the satisfaction is guaranted!!

M Zylicz from Warsaw, Poland Date of visit: August 6, 2014

We have had a great time in your chalet. It was a wonderful stay. The chalet was big with new furniture and nothing was missed in the kitchen. All the rooms are very tidy and the location was perfect, close to the Yoho National park. We can recommend your house.
Thanks for the log, I used it and it was great to sit in front of the house and to enjoy the surroundings and the heat of the fire place.

C. Dettman from Berlin, Germany Date of visit: July 18, 2014

This place was fantastic. Back to nature with all the comforts. Carpark (parking lot)was close with asphalt path to room (trolleys available in parking lot to help carry luggage). The chalet was located in that it felt like you were completely on you own, but you were actually amongst other similar chalets. Snow as all around us, and the manager was so helpful and friendly but she also kept out of the way. The chalet was very comfortable, even for a family of 5. The kitchen was well equipped. We bought groceries in Banff on way to chalet as we were planning on cooking. There were also a few good grocery stores in Golden. It was nice to be able to cook some home cooked meals after travelling and eating out for several weeks. So warm inside and the only thing I can complain about is the shower was quite small and if you are trying to book ahead or like us talk on computer back to Australia, the WiFi is very slow. . The rest is magnificent. I will stay again one day, and the town of Golden is so close, only 15 mins down the road, with Kicking Horse ski resort only 10 mins up the road from Golden. One of the best ski resorts I have ever skied. We walked down to the river and stood on the frozen ice. Had marshmallows outside, and just could of sat there and relaxed if we weren't so busy looking at the hot springs, Lake Louise and Banff. Emerald Lake and The Natural Bridge were very close and well worth seeing. Would have loved to cross country ski over the lake but unfortunately time didn't permit. Best part of our one month holiday and loved the bear teeth marks in the bin outside. Really knew we were in the Canadian forests. The property was as described, very clean (even got fresh towels half way through our 4 night stay) and well maintained. Would definitely recommend this property to others. Thanks for a great stay!!

Chalet was wonderful, well appointed and clean and staff so helpful, as was the owner with his helpful emails and info. While isolated, it was quiet and in a beautiful spot, and also perfectly situated for access to Banff, Jasper, Radium, Lake Louise and many other amazing places. Would love to return one summer to experience a different season. Definitely recommended.

We enjoyed preparing breakfast each morning in the well-appointed kithchen before our day's adventures in the area. When we booked the chalet, the owner offered many great suggestions for day trips. One of our favorite restaurants was The Truffle Pig in the little town of Field, on the way to Lake Louise. Another day trip took us through Golden where we enjoyed lunch and local brew at the Tap pub. Also, don't miss stopping for a meal at the beautiful Banff Springs lodge. The food and the view were exceptional. I'd gladly recommend this chalet to friends and family. The photos in the listing are accurate and the property is beautifully maintained. We would definitely like to return some day.

My wife and I with our two teenage boys stayed there in early June of 2012. The sleeping arrangements worked out great with the boys upstairs and us having the bedroom downstairs. The place was clean and well maintained. The kitchen appliances, cookware and dishes looked new. It was nice having the hostess onsite to help if needed. Fresh towels were supplied after a few days. We enjoyed the views from the front porch. With binoculars, we saw a mountain goat on the rocks across the valley.

I rarely write reviews for the places I stayed in, but I'd like to do it for this one. Yoho Chalet is a nice vacation place, peaceful, quiet and beautiful. It's located right off the Trans-Canada highway #1, but far enough to be quiet. It's very close to Yoho NP, also not far from Golden and Lake Louise. Log cabin... well they are hardly "cabins". I would call them "log homes" that are comfortable and spacious. The most amazing thing is that you can find everything you need inside, including all cookware and tableware, and even things like bottle openers, trash bags and dishwasher soap, all big and small things that you might need for your stay. Someone who organized this business thought of everything. They even have a gas grill outside, and little carts to carry your stuff from the parking lot to the cabin.
I know whty the first sentence in their "Policies and Rules" is "Treat the cabin like it is your second home". If does feel like home! The personnel is very friendly and helpful. When we came the first day, we could not start our gas fireplace. We called the host , she came immediately and helped us fix it, using some improvised tools.
To summarize, it a great place to stay and I would come again. (5 stars).

A superb location nestled in the mountains. Our stay was cozy, quiet and comfortable in the new log cabin. We really had the feeling that we were in a winter wonderland.

Thanks again for allowing us to enfoy your cabin while we were on vacation!
We found the Yoho Chalets to be the perfect solution ot our vacation needs. It was perfectly situated nearly equidistant between Kicking Horse and Lake Louise ski resorts. Every morning we would wake up and look at the snow reports (on provided WIFI) and decide where to ski for the day. On top of downhill skiing, we also took sometime to cross country ski on the trails nearby. In this case it was ski in and ski out and absolutely breathtaking. Having already experienced Yoho's natural beauty in the summer I can Highly recommend this chalet as a perfect home base for year round adventuring in the Canadian Rockies.

Thank you so much for making Yoho Chalets available to us during our visit to Yoho National Park.
We appreciate the modern, spacious and clean cabin, which has all the conveniences of home. This made it really easy for us to focus on the hiking and sightseeing in the area.
It is especially nice to wake up refreshed and invigorated, sit out on the comfortable chairs on the front porch to enjoy breathtaking views of the snow-covered mountains with our morning coffee.
We look forward to retuning again soon.
