Millions of years ago a mighty glacier left behind a dazzling mountain range with spectacularly chiseled spires that came to be known as the Bugaboo Glacier Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada. This dramatic and rugged range of the Canadian Rockies came to be known as the Bugaboos.
For centuries, these treacherous spires stood unchallenged, even by the most fearless climbers. Then in 1910, a brave young mountain guide named Conrad Kain dared to be the first. During one expedition to the summit, Kain and his team struggled. As they stopped to rest, one of the climbers exclaimed, "This is a veritable bugaboo," borrowing a mining term used by prospectors to describe a dead-end lead. Kain took his scoff as a challenge and vowed to reach the top of the spectacular range before him and name it the Bugaboo Mountains.
Determined, Conrad Kain eventually reached the summit. And today, the sheer rock faces of the Bugaboos have become a beacon to those seeking adventure, including expert skiers and climbers.
At Bugaboo Creek you'll find your very own Canadian Rockies Retreat, just like the warm, rustic mountain lodge at the end of an adventurous day on a rugged trail on the Bugaboos. Enjoy the bold, hearty flavor and generous portions of the Canadian Rockies in dishes such as our slowly roasted Prime Rib, Grilled Fresh Salmon and Spit-Roasted Chicken.
