This unique accommodation is a combination of a 32-foot, 1950s caravan and a spacious, screened-in post and beam structure, which account for about 1,200 square feet of space in total. It is also fully solar powered and comes with parking and heating.
This accommodation is also equipped with a lovely wood fired Finnish-style sauna. Due to it's remote location and challenge with year-round heating, the host shuts off the water to the trailer, shower and bathroom in the wintertime and the sauna and “scoop” shower provide the only bathing. This property offers a classy little outhouse.
Please note that there is a short drive to the trails and suggested day use donations are $10.00 for skiing and $5.00 for snowshoeing. Other important information for glampers is that there is only an outhouse, there will be no hot shower or bath, and they must have a four-wheel drive.

Larch Hills in the winter is a cross country skiers paradise, with over 50 kilometers the host has track-set and over 100 kilometers that are not groomed. In the ski season, the tracks are groomed every day and they rotate through their central, north, and south trails doing at least one-third of the system each day. Near the chalet is the trails done sign on which the 'Tracksetter of the Day' will note the recent grooming. There is also a comment white board for anything unusual. If conditions are too difficult for the host's PB Edge, they will use their snowmobiles and pull-behind equipment.

Enderby Cliffs Provincial Park is just a 20-minute drive from the glamping site, and the Shuswap River is only 20 minutes by bicycle from the accommodation, too.
