CAC IS HIRING GUIDES SKI AND SNOWBOARD TOURING
AT
MALLARD MOUNTAIN LODGE

Visit our website for general information.
Lodge maximum capacity is 6 guests plus CAC staff plus one Guide.
One Guide will be needed for each group.
Full internet access at the Lodge for communication with other Guides and Guiding
support information.
Rates negotiable, with travel assistance as needed.

WINTER 2021 – 2022

Winter 2021 – 2022 season approximate dates, subject to extension if earlier or later reservations are received.

  1. Opening mid January, 2022
  2. Closing mid to late April, 2022

These are the dates currently in need of a Guide assignment.

  1. Seven nights arriving at Lodge Sunday February 6.
  2. Three nights arriving at the Lodge Thursday March 3. If travelling to Valemount for only three nights at the Lodge is unworkable, this date can be adjusted to a Seven night arriving at the Lodge Sunday February 27.

URGENT. In respect of these dates already with guests reserved, we are on the cusp of cancelling them. This would be a horrific and first ever result for us. If you or anyone you know can step forward, it would be greatly appreciated.

As our season unfolds, other dates needing a Guide assignment may arise.

In all our dates.

  1. Arrive in Valemount the afternoon/evening before Lodge arrival day and stay over.
  2. Fly to Lodge on Lodge arrival day, AM
  3. Fly back to Valemount morning after the last night.

Interested Guides should contact Derek McManus at CAC

Thank you.
