Walk up the back yard and hrow on your skis and glide to the *main Sunburst and Sundance lifts. Ski home to your door from meandering connector or more difficult pistes like Blazer or Cruiser. Bring the kids home for lunch or just to take a break at the kitchen table while watching skiers swish by. Take advantage of the panoramic vistas of Mt.

About Caroline Barde

Geologist and teacher with two grown children. We have led an active life, skiing, snowboarding and windsurfing.

Caroline Barde purchased this chalet in 1986

Why Caroline Barde chose British Columbia

My husband and I met in Whistler. Years later we moved to the interior with our two children. We used to ski Sun Peaks in the early days when it was called Todd Mountain. We had witnessed the growth in Whistler so when Sun Peaks was beginning we knew we had to get in on it. That's why we have such a great ski in ski out property! We planned and built our dream log post and beam chalet and were lucky enough to get in on the first phase of Sun Peaks. The location of the chalet is second to none and we have had nothing but great times and wonderful memories in Sun Peaks. Renting has been amazing, people respect the chalet and it makes us feel good to know that our clients enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this chalet unique

Amazing ski in ski out location backing onto connector run. Awesome panoramic views with true mountain atmosphere. Fabulous log post and beam with an open plan.

Summer is magical in Sun Peaks. Enjoy stunning views and watching wildlife grazing on the runs surrounding the chalet. Enjoy the barbeque on the front deck after a hike or mountain bike. The Kodiak Timber Lodge is just a short 7-10 minute walk to the village. You will not be disappointed!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Kodiak provided my favorite feature; superb location. "

The location was fabulous in which we were able to ski directly from the chalet to the most popular lift in the village. The fact we did not need to drive to get to where all the action was, is a great asset in my eyes. We were not a taxi driver, the kids enjoyed their freedom as well did us big kids. The view into the village from the hot tub was enjoyed as well are all the cherished memories.

Spacious living area, true ski in & out!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at the Kodiak! This is our 8th year at Sun Peaks and our first year staying at Kodiak. Beautiful views of Mt Morrisey. True ski in and ski out (really). Spacious living area and spacious kitchen. Carol and Bruno were so gracious and responsive! Love, love, love their home. The spacious mud room is also fantastic for staying warm / getting warm while taking gear on and off.

Great house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Kodiak lodge September 22 to the 26th. We had 3 families staying in the house and there was plenty of room. Nice open concept and the two eating areas was perfect for the kids. The house was right on the hill just a 5 minute walk to the village. Perfect house for our Spartan race. He hot tub was a nice touch too. Would recommend this place to anyone!!

WOW - Kodiak Lodge is fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Kodiak Lodge was a superb place to stay as a family of five and so well appointed in every way, making our skiing holiday the best ever. Kitchen facilities were excellent. Being able to ski in and ski out every day with 2 young children (3 and 5 years) was so good. Magnificent views over Sun Peaks and the nearby ski runs were always appreciated. The wood featured in the lodge needs to be seen to be believed. In fact our 3 year old wanted to take Kodiak Lodge back to Vancouver with her, because she loved the house so much. That says it all.
