I've never been to Stake or Logan Lakes, but they are on my list! It
makes for a popular trip with some of our club members.
From one of our earlier trips: This high altitude ski destination
offers three different settings to ski in. It is less than five
hours from Bellingham on good, well-maintained roads. We will be
staying at the fabulous Highland House B&B in Logan Lake, BC.
offering 5 luxury bedrooms with 2 beds and private full bathrooms. This
B&B was built to house the managers of the nearby pit mine and they
spared no expenses building it. This place is really nice! The
cost includes meals (hearty breakfasts with many choices, sack trail
lunches, substantial dinners, special dietary needs accommodated).
The outdoor hot tub and setting are as outstanding as the rest of the
B&B. To visit their web site go to: www.highlandhouse.ca

Valley - 'seldom-groomed'; "The ski trails follow old logging
roads and skid trails through open timber and across natural grassy
slopes. Our trails are not suitable for skate-skiing, but great for
classic skiing on wilderness groomed trails."
