This is where it all starts

Welcome! Should we go heli-skiing?

Our day lodge is just five minutes from the heart of the town of Golden, but stepping inside is the beginning of feeling very far away from day-to-day life.

With a hot cup of Rudi’s own mountain tea in hand, we’ll orient you for the day of incredible adventure to come.

The other centerpiece is the Bruno Engler photo wall, covered with iconic prints from the famous mountain photographer. Rudi and Bruno were close friends, and was often a model for shots, so you’ll spot Rudi in a couple from back in the day!
