Snowboard with Gerry Lopez

Snowboard with Gerry Lopez at Island Lake Lodge

This is a rare opportunity to ride North America’s premier cat skiing operation with surfing legend and original Pipeline master, Gerry Lopez. There is so much more to Gerry Lopez than just being an incredible surfer. He’s charismatic, intelligent and as intuitive on land as he is in the waves. Gerry has been pushing the limits of performance snowboarding for years and will be your host and inspiration on this Rocky Mountain adventure.

With 5000 acres of off piste terrain set in the stunning Lizard Range Mountains in Fernie, B.C., Island Lake Lodge is recognized as one of the premier powder skiing destinations in North America. Gowithapro offers an opportunity for 12 skiers and boarders to get an average 12,000-15000 vertical feet per day of pristine cat-accessed terrain in this breathtaking setting. There will be a maximum of only 36 people spread over 5000 acres at any given time.

At the end of the day, retreat to the comfort of Island Lakes ‘deluxe rustic’ accommodations with 5-star gourmet dining set amidst old growth forests. Enjoy the services of the masseuse, or the outdoor hot tub without an intrusive telephone or television to annoy you, or a computer jack to tempt you. There is lodging for up to 40 people, so there may be room for friends or family not interested in the cat-experience. They will be able to explore the vast forest by snowshoe or relax before a roaring fire in the lodge’s stone hearth.
