Little Sand Cabin


The Sand Creek Valley is a magical place!

Situated in on the other side of the mountain from Island Lake Lodge and Fernie Alpine Resort.  The area has endless opportunity to fulfill your never ending quest for adventure.


The Little Sand cabin is an absolute Mecca for the winter sports enthusiast.  In Particular Back Country Powder Skiing, and Snowmobile Assisted Skiing.   There is an amazing
annual snow accumulation in excess of 7m .  Rarely a winter day goes by when you don't get to be the one out on the mountain cutting fresh tracks.  Along with the amazing snow there are also hundreds of acres of gladed treed areas.  It is a powder skiing, snowmobiling experience that cannot be beat.   **IMPORTANT**  Neither Grizzly Basin or any other group or individual monitor or control any of the avalanche terrain located in or around the Grizzly Basin cabins.  Some of the areas have high potential for avalanche danger. It is up to the user to determine these areas.  It is essential that users have Mountain experience, Avalanche training, and all of the necessary avalanche equipment along with knowledge of  how to use it.  Avalanche conditions found at (Lizard range)


The Summer time boast some of the most beautiful scenery the South Eastern Rocky Mountains have to offer.   There are endless trails to hike and mountain bike and a variety of wildlife that some say can only b
e surpassed by the plains of Africa.   If mountain or wild life photography is your passion make sure you bring extra memory cards because there are no end to the spectacular photo opportunities  this beautiful mountain vista has to offer. 


Little Sand Cabin was built in summers 2011-2012.  All of the materials were hauled up the mountain from Jaffray and assembled on site entirely by hand.   Most of the interior finish was done from material that were found on site.  (The bar stools and bar top were fashioned from a couple old logs laying out in the horse pasture and a skilled man on a chain saw). 


Weather you choose to create your own adventure, or you let one of our guides take you out on horseback.  You will see and feel first hand the magic of the Sand Creek Valley.  I am confident your experience will be great one you wont soon forget and will leave you counting the days until your return.

Guest Testimonials

The area is a perfect mixture of terrain for both snowmobiles, and skiing. Access to the terrain is exceptional using either alpine touring gear, or by snowmobile.  The skiing here was some of the best skiing I have ever done hands down. The location of the valley combines some of the best aspects of slope, snow quality, and tree spacing to provide perfect runs. Snowmobiling around the backside of the east ridge was excellent as well. There are gladed areas that lead into alpine bowls offering some challenging but fun terrain to ride in. To top it off, the cabin is nothing short of luxurious boasting all amenities you could possibly want in the backcountry.
